Greylock Capital Associates has promoted its chief operating officer and its research director to partner
 
John C. Maguire, currently CIO, and Juan Pedro (JP) Moreno, currently managing director and head of research, will be partners at GCA, the parent company of Greylock Capital Management, a $600 million alternative asset manager focused on the global credit markets with particular emphasis on Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and peripheral Europe.

Prior to joining Greylock, Maguire was a senior managing director at Bear Stearns where he co-founded and was head of the global liability management group. Before that he was a partner at the law firm of Brown & Wood.

Moreno is a former vice president at Contrarian Capital Management, where he worked with its Emerging Markets Fund. Prior to that, he was an investment banking associate at Lehman Brothers and Goldman, Sachs & Co.

“We are delighted to welcome John and JP as partners,” said AJ Mediratta, co-president and partner at Greylock Capital, in a statement. “John’s 30 years of experience on the legal, business and capital markets side help ensure that we continue to focus on operational efficiencies, transparency and best practices in all areas of the firm.”

Said Hans Humes, chairman and chief executive officer, in a statement: “JP’s wealth of experience in the global markets, in-depth knowledge of the credit markets and local market relationships allowed Greylock Capital to provide investors with superior post-crisis returns over the past three years. I look forward to continuing to work with JP on the investment themes that have been put in place for the coming year and with John in furthering the firm’s operations.”
