Landmark rehires director for investor relations role

The appointment comes as the firm seeks to raise more than $10bn across various funds in its next fundraising cycle.

Landmark Partners has rehired an investor relations executive who spent time at Pomona Capital and FlowStone Partners.

The Simsbury, Connecticut-headquartered firm appointed Jason Neal as a director in its IR and business development group this month, his LinkedIn profile shows.

Neal’s duties include marketing and fundraising efforts for Landmark’s private equity, real estate and infrastructure secondaries funds, according to his profile. He is mainly focused on originating relationships and on expanding and improving existing private wealth relationships. This includes with registered investment advisors, bank and trust companies, single and multi-family offices, high-net-worth individuals and broker-dealers.

Prior to re-joining Landmark, Neal spent eight months as a vice-president at Pomona where he was also a regional director. Before that he spent two years as head of business development and IR at FlowStone.

Landmark wants to raise more than $10 billion across various funds in its next fundraising cycle, the chief executive of its parent company Brightsphere Investment Group said this month.

The firm has lost three investment professionals this year, including a partner in its real estate business who joined Dallas-headquartered Crow Holdings Capital, as Secondaries Investor reported.

Landmark is the secondaries market’s fifth-biggest firm, having raised $17.7 billion over the five-year period to June last year, according to the latest SI 30 ranking of biggest fundraisers.
