NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 14, 2019-- Macquarie Capital, the corporate advisory, capital markets and principal investment arm of Macquarie Group (ASX: MQG; ADR: MQBKY), today announced that it has appointed Vincent Repaci as Managing Director and head of a new asset-based finance group, along with several other senior appointments within its Debt Capital Markets business.

Mr. Repaci will lead a team that provides asset-based lending solutions for financial sponsors and corporate clients supporting LBOs, refinancings and restructurings. He joins Macquarie Capital from UBS, where he established and headed that firm’s asset-based lending business. His appointment joins three others recently by Macquarie Capital to strengthen its leveraged finance platform.

Matthew Magnuson has joined the firm as a Managing Director and Head of Credit Analytics. He joins Macquarie Capital from Loews Corporation, where he was most recently a portfolio manager focused on fundamental credit analysis targeting a wide spectrum of credit investments, including par loans, event-driven credit, both stressed and distressed.

In addition, Chad Hersch has joined Macquarie Capital as a credit trader and Senior Vice President, bringing 15 years of leveraged loan trading into the role. Jodi Joskowitz was appointed a Senior Vice President and credit salesperson. She has 20 years of experience in leveraged finance.

“The creation of our asset-based lending group will allow us to deliver additional products to our clients that are a natural extension of our current leveraged finance platform,” said Stephen Mehos, Senior Managing Director and Head of Debt Capital Markets, Americas and Europe at Macquarie Capital. “That group, along with the other senior appointments announced today, reflect our continued investment in and expansion of Macquarie Capital’s Debt Capital Markets business.”

The growing leveraged finance business complements the direct lending capabilities of Macquarie Capital’s Principal Finance group. Together, they provide a holistic suite of financing solutions, allowing Macquarie Capital to flexibly address the capital needs of financial sponsors and middle-market corporate clients. Macquarie Capital has significantly expanded in the last several years and recently made several senior-level appointments in both North America and Europe (Fady Lahame, Michael Magliana and Camelia Robu in EMEA), sectors (including Timothy Alden in aerospace, defense and government services, Chris Rutherford in upstream oil and gas, Simon Russell in software and Magnus Scaddan in consumer and retail), coverage areas (Mark Buchanan covering family offices) and emerging growth areas (Oliver Bradley in Digital Infrastructure).
