Boneparth and Buoymaster.

“I’m delighted to announce John Buoymaster’s appointment as president of our firm. He has been a partner and significant contributor to our company for more than 11 years,” said Kathryn A. Hall, chief executive officer and chief investment officer of Hall Capital Partners. “I’m also pleased that Eric Alt, Rick Grand-Jean, Helane Morrison, and Sarah Stein have joined our executive committee. Our company and our clients will benefit from their talents and insights as they assume expanded roles with the company.”

“Under Katie’s leadership, Hall Capital has built a world class investment firm with a distinctive client-centric business model,” said John Buoymaster. “We have continually strengthened our team and expanded our capabilities to meet the increasing challenges of investing across asset classes and geographies. The breadth and strength of our team provide access to strategies, tactics, and managers that will continue to be essential elements of successful investing in the turbulent markets we now face. I’m very proud to have participated in building Hall Capital’s capabilities up to this point, and look forward to continuing that effort in the interest of our present clients, future clients, and employees.”

Mr. Buoymaster joined the firm in 1998 as managing director. Previously, he was a vice president in the San Francisco office of J.P. Morgan & Co., where he advised individuals and families on investment strategy, portfolio structuring and generational planning.
