Hemali Dassani Castle HarlanNew York-based private equity firm Castle Harlan has hired Old City Investment Partners managing director Hemali Dassani as its new director of investor relations.

Dassani will also oversee marketing, the firm said.

Castle Harlan co-president Howard Morgan said, “Dassani’s appointment reflects her track record of success in working with alternative investment firms, especially private equity funds, to raise capital globally.

“Her expertise and experience will be invaluable when we launch our next fund.”

Dassani’s previous employer Old City is a multi-family office dedicated to finding high-quality investments for its investors.

She was previously a vice president at Diamond Edge Capital Partners, where she marketed alternative asset managers to global institutional investors and consultants.

Earlier this year Castle Harlan promoted Tariq Osman to managing director following a decade at the firm and its Australian affiliate.

Osman spent the last five years at the firm’s New York office, most recently working on deals in the energy services and equipment sector.

In the preceding five years he worked at CHAMP Private Equity focusing on a range of industries, and was previously employed at McKinsey & Co in Sydney.
