Houlihan Smith has appointed Tom Kornmeier as a managing director in its New York office.
Kornmeier will join the firm's hedge fund services group, assisting alternative investment advisors with their portfolio valuation, M&A advisory, restructuring and transaction advisory needs.
"We are pleased that Tom is joining our hedge fund practices team, his experience in this industry is a true complement to our M&A, restructuring, valuation, and transaction advisory services," says Karl D'Cunha, senior managing director of Houlihan Smith.
Prior to joining Houlihan Smith, Kornmeier was a founding partner of Quantitative Alpha, which employed an investing approach that integrated a set of carefully researched alphas with a unique and effective investment process.
Before founding Quantitative Alpha, Kornmeier was a financial adviser for UBS, where he was responsible for the management of a large portfolio of fixed income and equity securities.
