Och-Ziff hires Silver Creek marketer


Silver Creek’s former head of investor relations has decamped to Och-Ziff’s marketing and investor relations department.

Frances Orabona, formerly director of investor relations at fund of funds Silver Creek Capital Management, has joined Och-Ziff Capital Management as a senior marketer. She is working on marketing and investor relations with U.S. institutions at the $27 billion hedge fund firm.

At Silver Creek her duties are being assumed by other members of the investor relations team. A spokesman for the firm declined to comment further. Silver Creek decided last year to restructure and close three of its hedge fund of funds and launch new ones that separate liquid and illiquid assets. The firm manages $6.5 billion.
