In this week’s hire report, we look at recent hires made by hedge fund managers Finisterre Capital, Pershing Square Capital Management, Moore Capital Management and recently launched Tyrus Capital. Amidst the tough fundraising market, all of these managers have boosted their investor relations and marketing teams by making key additions.

First up is Emerging Markets specialist Finisterre Capital LLP which was founded in October 2002 and is led by Paul Crean, Frode Foss-Skiftesvik, Yan Swiderski, and Rafaël Biosse Duplan. Finisterre has added Sabine Maarschalk to its marketing and investor relations team. Ms. Maarschalk has over 10 years of experience in the industry. Her recent positions include heading up the London sales office for hedge fund manager Coast Asset Management, as well as holding a senior sales position at ABN-AMRO.

Next up is Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square Capital Management, which has added Ruth Wang to its investor relations team. Pershing Square is a deep value and activist-oriented hedge fund manager that made a lot of publicity earlier this year during its unsuccessful shareholder activist campaign against Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT). Ms. Wang joins the hedge fund manager from Credit Suisse’s Financial Institutions Group where she was an investment banking analyst.

A few months back Moore Capital Management and Tyrus Capital LLP also added to their teams. Louis Bacon’s Moore Capital brought Bill Callanan aboard as a member of its Investor relations team. He now covers Global Macro and Relative Value strategies at the hedge fund manager. Before joining Moore, Mr. Callanan was with Citadel Investment Group where he was a sector head in the firm’s fund of funds and hedge fund seeding group.

Finally, Charles Hopkinson-Woolley became the founding partner of investor relations at Tyrus Capital . Like Tyrus Capital’s founder and managing director Tony Chedraoui, Mr. Hopkinson-Woolley was also formerly with Deephaven Capital Management. While at Deephaven, Mr. Hopkinson-Woolley was a managing director in the firm’s investor relations with responsibility for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It looks like Mr. Hopkinson-Woolley has been doing a great because, as we announced earlier, Tyrus Capital is on pace to be the largest launch of 2009.
