CONSHOHOCKEN, PA — Hamilton Lane (NASDAQ: HLNE) announced that it recently hired Kristin Brandt to the newly-created role of Chief Human Resources Officer, based in the firm’s Conshohocken headquarters and reporting to CEO Mario Giannini.

Brandt is a longtime Human Resources professional with 25 years of experience, nearly 20 of which were within the financial services and banking industry. She comes to Hamilton Lane from Lazard, where she spent seven years and most recently served as the Head of HR for the Americas Investment Banking division. Prior to Lazard, she spent 12 years at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in a variety of leadership roles, primarily within the Global Corporate and Investment Banking division. Brandt spent much of her early career within the consulting industry, after earning a BA from Tufts University and an MBA from Columbia University.

Mario Giannini commented: “Kristin has extensive experience in building world-class Human Resources operations within large and growing financial firms, and we will look to her to help us continue to scale our own function, construct the roadmap for our future and bring an even greater focus on finding, fostering and supporting the part of our business that truly sets us apart – our employees.”

Brandt joins Hamilton Lane at a time of high growth for the firm, which has expanded its employee base by 42% since March 2020, to more than 540 employees across 21 offices globally today. The firm has expanded its commingled product platform and SMA businesses, and has also seen significant growth in its Evergreen business, launched just over three years ago and which is designed to provide private markets access with a single allocation, monthly or quarterly liquidity, low investment minimums and immediate exposure. Among her areas of focus will be continuing to invest in the functions that support employee growth and development – recruitment, retention, mentorship and training.
