With this addition, we hope to further expand our relationships and introduce our middle market-focused credit, private equity and real estate offerings to a new group of clients and partners.”

“Jordan is a highly driven and motivated professional with deep industry experience, long-term relationships and an exemplary fundraising track record,” added Charlie Gilroy. “Expanding our asset management platform by increasing third party capital is a critical element of our strategy to be the preeminent investing and financing partner to the middle market. I am confident that Jordan’s extensive leadership and business development experience will be of tremendous value as we continue to execute on our growth plan.”
