The firm has added Jackson Chan in Hong Kong, David Welp in Houston, Mike Zard in San Diego, and Will MacColl in Connecticut.

Chan will join as a senior vice president, while Welp, Zard, and MacColl will serve as vice presidents, focusing on the distribution of the firm’s private equity, real assets, and real estate offerings in their respective regions in the US.

Eaton also announced that it has appointed David Weiss and Ryan Still as a vice president and an associate, respectively, of its project management team.

Both will participate in the execution of the various alternative funds marketed by the firm.

Eaton partner Jeff Eaton said, “Now in our 31st year and recognized as one of the largest and successful firms in the placement industry, we continue to invest in top-tier talent in order to further augment our global capabilities and adjust to an ever-changing fundraising environment.

“We have successfully raised capital from institutional investors globally for differentiated managers across a broad spectrum of alternative offerings.

“Scale and resources are integral to ensuring fundraising success in the current marketplace and the addition of these key professionals will enhance our already strong distribution and execution efforts.”

Last month Eaton expanded its London team by hiring Kaiser Jasrai as a vice president focused on dealings in Europe and the Middle East.
