TA Associates adds two senior executives


boston_glass_170sqPrivate equity firm TA Associates has strengthened its team by adding two senior executives, which will fill newly-created positions.

The Boston-based firm has appointed Jeffrey Hadden as chief operating officer and general counsel, while Kevin Masse has been named its chief portfolio officer.

Hadden, who was TA’s outside general counsel since 1987, previously served as Goodwin Procter, where he was a partner in its business law department and a member of its private equity group.

Masse has worked as a partner at Deloitte & Touche, where he was responsible for the New England M&A services group and served as a member of the Deloitte US M&A leadership team.

TA Associates chairman Richard Tadler said, “Jeff has been a trusted advisor to TA Associates for more than 25 years, and we are very pleased he has chosen to continue this longstanding relationship as a key member of our firm.

“Jeff brings a wealth of legal expertise and management experience in a large professional services organization.

“We established this position, and additional senior roles, to help further improve TA’s execution and support the long-term growth of our firm.”

Last month TA hired Tony Marsh as a director of capital markets in its Boston office.
