William D. Witter hires EagleRock marketer


William D. Witter, the $1.8 billion New York-based alternatives shop, has decided to make a marketing push to institutional investors and has hired Shannon Perrin to head up the effort. Perrin comes straight from Nader Tavakoli's $350 million EagleRock Capital, where she held a similar position running marketing and business development.

William D. Witter's hedge fund assets, which stand around $120 million, according to its most recent filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, are comprised primarily of assets from individual investors. The firm currently manages four hedge funds, including a recently launched special opportunities fund.
