Barbagallo named as new Kingdon counsel

by

Mark Kingdon's $3.7 billion Kingdon Capital Management has named Alfred Barbagallo to the new post of general counsel and chief compliance officer. Formerly associate general counsel at Andor Capital Management, Barbagallo reports to chief operating officer Alan Winters. While the new position of chief compliance officer would complete a requirement of registration as an investment adviser with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Kingdon has apparently not yet decided whether it will register.
