Kirk Dizon Leaves Hall Capital Partners

Kirk Dizon has left Hall Capital Partners, sister Web site peHub reported.

Dizon left the LP around the end of August and will be starting his own venture, according to persons familiar with the situation. Dizon joined Hall Capital in 2006 where he was a managing director and co-head of the private equity group. Before that, he was a partner at the law firm Cooley Godward.

“He is a bright guy,” one buyout executive said of Dizon.

Hall Capital has $22.7 billion under management, with about $10 billion in alternatives, according to the firm’s Web site. The firm has offices in San Francisco and New York. Hall Capital is a “huge multifamily office in many hedge and PE funds,” the buyout executive said.

Kathryn Hall founded Hall Capital Partners in 1994 and is listed as the firm’s chairman, CEO and chief investment officer. Hall, in her biography, says she was a GP at HFS Management Partners (predecessor to Farallon Capital Partners), HFS Partners I and Hellman & Friedman.

Dizon could not be reached for comment.
