Hirtle Callaghan names Jamie Johnson director of private equity

Hirtle Callaghan, a US-based privately held investment firm, has named Jamie R. Johnson director of private equity.

Johnson brings more than two decades of private equity experience to his new position, including nine years managing investment portfolios for industrial families in Europe.

Johnson will oversee the firm’s private equity effort. Claire Kendrick will continue to lead the portfolio management process and Amy Schondra will lead operations for the unit.

“We are thrilled to have Jamie on board. Capturing the inefficiencies of the private equity market to enhance client returns has always been a priority at Hirtle Callaghan. We are adding capability at the most senior level to underscore our commitment to this critical area,” says Jonathan Hirtle, chief executive of Hirtle Callaghan. “Jamie is already busy building upon the excellent work done by our team to date.”

Johnson most recently served as a managing director of Paul Capital Investments, a San Francisco-based fund of funds.

From 1999 to 2005, he served as head of private equity at Alta Advisers, a London-based family office that served the family of Swedish industrialist Hans Rausing. He oversaw the office’s global private equity and venture capital investment program.

Before joining Alta, he held a similar position at another European-based institutional-scale family office.
