Helix International has added Goldman Sachs veteran Clive Norton as a managing director.
The London-based private equity fund placement agency of New York-based Jefferies Group said Norton will be responsible for generating and coordinating mandates, as well as for its Nordic region activities.
Norton, who retired from Goldman in September and remains a consultant through the end of the month, “has very strong relationships with both GPs and investors, a high standing in the market, and many years of relevant experience,” Helix managing partner Charles Cecil said.
At Goldman, Norton served as co-head of the p.e. group’s European operations. Prior to joining Goldman, he worked as a managing director in Merrill Lynch’s private equity group.
Helix also recently hired Wanda Felton, a p.e. fundraiser formerly at Credit Suisse and Hamilton Lane, as a managing director in New York.
