Jensen Partners appoints Head of Europe
Jensen Partners has expanded its global footprint to meet the growing demand for specialised alternative investment recruitment services with the appointment of Peter Mayer, formerly a Partner at PJT Park Hill, as Head of Europe.
An executive search and corporate advisory firm for the alternative investment management industry, Jensen Partners specialises in the sourcing and placement of capital raising talent. Mayer provides Jensen Partners with additional boots on the ground in a key financial market.
"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,” says Sasha Jensen, founder and CEO of Jensen Partners. “We are thrilled to have Peter as a member of our team, who will be key to growing our advisory business and helping our clients raise capital by identifying and securing the ideal human capital.”
Mayer has more than 30 years of experience in the alternative asset and financial services industry, including expertise in hedge funds and private debt. He joins Jensen Partners from PJT Park Hill, where he was most recently a Partner responsible for leading the Park Hill’s European Hedge Fund business. Prior to joining Park Hill Group in 2006 (at the time, part of Blackstone), Mayer was a Director in the Private Funds Group at Credit Suisse; before that, he headed the bank’s Emerging European Equity Sales team. Mayer began his banking career at Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. in New York.
"I have long admired Sasha and the team at Jensen Partners for how they have built such a dominant franchise anchored on extraordinarily strong relationships with their clients through their tailored services and a unique search methodology," says Mayer. "I hope to build on Jensen Partners’ reputation by expanding the firm’s efforts into new markets and delivering the same high-quality service to their clients around the world.”
