In this week’s hedge fund hiring report, we look at recent additions at a number of top firms. The featured hedge fund moves include senior appointments at Armajaro Asset Management, EIM SA, and Man Group, as well as significant investment team additions at Perella Weinberg Partners, Hermes Fund Managers, and Moore Capital Management.

Commodity focused Armajaro Asset Management has named Harry Morley as its new CEO. Since 2008, Morley has been the group finance director of Armajaro Holdings. Mr. Morley replaces Richard Gower, who will retain the role of Chairman. Armajaro Asset Management and Grower made headlines this summer when it built up a billion dollar long position in the cocoa futures market.

Mr. Ellis is currently a manager of GLG Partners, which Man Group is in the process of purchasing for approximately $1.6 billion. At GLG, Ellis currently manages a multi-strategy fund and serves as the chairman of its multi-manager group. Before joining GLG, Ellis was a managing director at Financial Risk Management (FRM), a fund of hedge funds specialist.
