An Alt Fund Shop Says Goodbye to a Key Account Exec
The Salient Partners [profile] folks recently said goodbye to a key account executive.
MFWire has learned that Chicago-based Derryk Madsen, director and head of strategic relationships at the Houston-based alternative mutual fund shop, moved on from Salient last month.

A spokeswoman for Salient declined to comment for this story.
An alumnus of DePaul University, Madsen is a former restauranteur, chief, caterer, restaurant consultant, and freelance food writer. He worked at Sidney Kulek and Guggenheim before joining Salient three years ago.
Madsen's departure came five months after Salient closed on its acquisition of San Francisco-based Forward Management. That deal added a bigger traditional retail mutual fund presence to Salient, an alternatives manager that has been building out a liquid alts mutual fund business. When the deal closed in June, the combined firm had $27 billion in AUM and about 260 employees.
