Morfit, 41, is currently the fund’s president and will become the $US16 billion activist hedge fund firm’s chief investment officer, according to the Journal.
Earlier this month, Morfit presented on behalf of the firm at the 13D Monitor’s Active-Passive Investor Summit, announcing the activist fund’s position in KKR.
A spokesperson for ValueAct didn’t immediately comment.
