Daniel Och’s multi-strategy hedge fund firm, Och-Ziff Capital Management , has added Matt Todd to its hedge fund sales team. Mr. Todd, who will be based in Och-Ziff’s London office, joins Och-Ziff Capital from Stark Investments. While at Stark, he covered Europe, Asia and the Middle East as the head of sales.

Finally, BlueMountain Capital Management has bolstered its marketing and investor relations efforts with the addition of Jennifer Strickland as a Managing Director. Ms. Strickland’s first days on the job were most likely very eventful and exciting, as BlueMountain launched two hedge funds on April 1st. The first fund focuses on distressed securities and the second focuses on securitized investments.

BlueMountain Capital, which was founded in 2003 by CEO & CIO Andrew Feldstein, poached Ms. Strickland from Dallas-based HBK Investments . She spent almost 9 years at HBK Capital and served as the hedge fund’s Director of Investor Relations. Separately, BlueMountain recently promoted Josh Drazen to Managing Director of Investor Relations and Strategy.
