Airlie Group hires K2 managing director


Airlie Group, a Greenwich, Connecticut hedge fund founded by distressed debt guru and Drexel Burham Lambert veteran, Dort Cameron III, has hired Steve Ezzes from New York fund of funds, K2 Advisors.

Ezzes, who started at Arlie this week, will work as a portfolio manager along with Cameron, Jeremy Bloomer and Adam Goodfriend. At K2, an Arlie investor, Ezzes had been director of hedge fund research.

The move for Ezzes is somewhat of a home coming. Ezzes was at one time a partner in Investment Limited Partnership, a company Cameron founded in the 1980s with financier Richard Rainwater
