Och-Ziff Executives Said to Exit After Billions Withdrawn

Several executives are leaving Och-Ziff Capital Management Group LLC after the hedge fund suffered withdrawals of about $13 billion in the past 13 months and its shares dropped, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Among those departing are Drew Gillanders, a top European equity analyst; James Keith “JK” Brown, a partner and head of investor relations; and Paula Drake, chief compliance officer, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing personnel matters. Hamish Chalmers, an analyst in London, also has exited, they said. Drake declined to comment, while none of the others leaving returned calls and emails seeking comment.
