SAC plucks Hickey from Maverick


SAC Capital Advisors has taken on John Hickey, a senior trader at Dallas-based Maverick Capital, as a trader focusing on technology at SAC. Maverick Capital, which has approximately $7 billion in assets, is managed by Lee Ainslie III and was founded with seed capital from Sam Wyly, who has since seeded the Dallas-based fund of funds Ranger Capital. An official at SAC confirmed Hickey's hire. A spokesman from Maverick Capital did not return calls before press time.
