The Hedge Fund Association, a global non-profit trade and nonpartisan lobbying organization, announced two U.S. regional leadership appointments to its Midwestern offices. 

The HFA board of directors appointed Lisa Tamburini and John Maddente as Co-Directors of HFA’s Midwest region. The two will be responsible for educational and networking events in Chicago, Milwaukee, and additional locations.

“Our expanding calendar of 2016 symposiums in Chicago is already strengthened by the teamwork of Lisa Tamburini and John Maddente, demonstrated by HFA’s successful January hedge fund marketing program and the upcoming March 16th symposium Women in Hedge Funds,” said HFA President Mitch Ackles. “We are delighted to have these two highly regarded industry executives join our team.”

Tamburini is the Chief Compliance Officer for RMB Asset Management and Legal Counsel for RMB Capital in Chicago. She is also a Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Paralegal Studies at Loyola University Chicago. 

Tamburini earned a JD from DePaul University College of Law and a BA in Political Science from Western Illinois University. 

“On behalf of HFA, I look forward to initiating new industry relationships and helping create events that educate and connect our existing and potential members,” she said.

John Maddente is a Director with accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly, leading national growth initiatives in the capital markets, banking, and insurance sectors. 

Based in Baker Tilly’s Milwaukee, WI office, he has 25 years of experience at professional advisory firms. He earned an MS in Management from Cardinal Stritch University and a BA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
