Atlantic-Pacific adds three for global direct placement efforts
Atlantic-Pacific Capital, an independent global placement agent for alternative investment funds and direct private placements, has hired three placement professionals over the past 12 months to expand its direct placement group.
The new professionals are part of the firm's ongoing strategy to better serve its clients by strengthening its global direct private placement fundraising capabilities. Since inception, the firm has acted as placement agent on 53 fund and direct private placement transactions, raising over USD38bn in capital.
The recent hires include Garett Stoffels (pictured), Steven Tuch and Jonathan Zald.
'These new hires mark a significant expansion of our direct private placement business and position our firm to fully capitalize on the opportunities we are seeing in the market,' says James Manley, chairman and chief executive of Atlantic-Pacific Capital. 'We believe the contributions of these three individuals will significantly enhance our firm's ability to provide global advisory and distribution services to our broad client base.'
Stoffels joined the firm's New York office as co-head of direct private placements. Throughout his career, Stoffels has been directly involved in over 75 transactions aggregating in excess of USD70bn. Prior to joining Atlantic-Pacific Capital, he was a managing director in the real estate and lodging investment banking group of Bear Stearns, where he provided capital raising and M&A advisory services to real estate companies and private equity sponsors.
Tuch joined the firm's Greenwich, Connecticut office as co-head of direct private placements. Tuch spent the last four years at Deutsche Bank where he was a managing director in equity capital markets and also head of the firm's private equity placement group.
Zald joined the firm's New York office as an associate focusing on the direct private placement effort. Previously, Zald was an investment banking analyst with Oppenheimer (previously CIBC World Markets) in both the leveraged finance and mergers and acquisitions departments. While at Oppenheimer, he advised clients on buy-side and sell-side transactions in the consumer products, business services, industrial, healthcare, and technology industries.
