Dalia Cohen and Eric Storch have joined Oak Hill Advisors as managing directors.
Cohen (pictured) joined the firm on 1 August as managing director and head of investor relations, a new role within the client coverage group.
Storch joined the firm last week as managing director and has taken on senior responsibilities relating to the firm's business development, client coverage and marketing activities.
Bill Bohnsack, president of OHA, says: "Dalia and Eric have been hired at a time of significant growth in demand for the firm's distressed and performing credit investment capabilities. Dalia brings more than two decades of experience, including senior investor relations and investing roles, to the OHA team. Similarly, Eric has been working directly with institutional investors as a fixed income portfolio manager and alternatives-focused product specialist for more than twenty years. The additions of these outstanding professionals will help us continue to deliver best-in-class investment solutions to our growing roster of clients."

She was previously a managing director of marketing and investor relations at Trimaran Advisors and chief financial officer of a credit hedge fund managed by Trian Credit Partners. Prior to that, Cohen was a vice president in corporate development for DoubleClick. She started her career at Morgan Stanley in the mergers, acquisitions and restructuring group both in New York and Hong Kong, and subsequently was a research analyst in the global high yield department.

He also worked at Seix Investment Advisors as head of alternatives and structured products, in addition to his role as a senior investment manager working with the firm's large client and consultant relationships.
