Victory Park Capital (VPC), an asset management firm specialising in direct credit and control equity investing in middle market and distressed companies, has named Jordan Allen as principal and chief operating officer.
Allen will oversee business operations at VPC.
“As our business continues to experience growth, so do the needs of our infrastructure and the scope and responsibilities of our management team,” says Richard Levy, managing partner. “Jordan will add an additional layer of depth by building upon the already strong foundation we have in place for our daily operations and identifying further efficiencies to support our growth.”
Before joining VPC, Allen served as co-head of North America, chief operating officer and chief financial officer of Man Investments USA. At Man, a USD53bn asset manager headquartered in London, Allen oversaw Man’s US business, which comprises five investment management teams, hedge fund research, risk management and sales.
