Jensen Partners, the global executive search firm specializing in alternatives, has hired Peter Mayer, former partner and head of PJT Park Hill’s European hedge fund business.
The expansion of the firm’s global footprint is to meet the demand for specialized recruitment services. Mayer joins as head of Europe and will lead the firm’s efforts out of the London office focusing on recruiting and AUM growth advisory.
“Peter is a veteran of the alternative investment industry, with a deep understanding of different strategies and asset classes, as well as a vast network of contacts and GP and LP relationships,” said Sasha Jensen, who founded Jensen Partners.
Prior to joining Park Hill Group in 2006, when it was part of Blackstone, he was director in the private funds group at Credit Suisse; and before that, he headed the bank’s emerging European equity sales team.
Jensen Partners model is based on a global database of more than 22,000 global alternative capital raisers, which includes professionals from private equity firms, private credit firms, real estate investment firms, real asset investors, infrastructure investors and hedge funds.
Last year, the firm began tracking the diversity of marketing talent to better meet the need for diverse hires and this year the firm begins following the movement of marketers specializing in ESG and impact investing. Jensen publishes the trends in the firm’s quarterly newsletter.
