Twin Brook Capital Partners Taps Ryan To Lead Capital Markets

Mar 24 2017 | 8:20pm ET

Twin Brook Capital Partners, the direct lending unit of private equity giant Angelo, Gordon & Co, has hired former Fifth Third Bank executive Garrett Ryan as a partner and head of capital markets.

The new position is effective immediately, Twin Brook said in a statement. In his new role, Ryan will be based in Chicago and responsible for all capital markets-related activities for the firm.

Prior to joining Twin Brook, Ryan served as managing director of debt capital markets for Fifth Third Bank, responsible for structuring and originating transactions for the bank’s clients. Before joining Fifth Third Bank in 2008, he was director of capital markets at CapitalSource LLC., where he structured and distributed debt products for private equity firms involved in leveraged buyouts, recapitalizations and refinancings of middle-market companies. Earlier in his career, he was a director of loan syndications at LaSalle Bank and a loan officer in the corporate banking unit of Allied Irish Bank. 

“Garrett is an accomplished executive with extensive experience originating, structuring, and overseeing the execution of middle-market leveraged transactions,” said Trevor Clark and Chris Williams, co-heads of Twin Brook, in a joint statement. “Given the overwhelming demand we have received from our private equity clients to agent and lead their transactions, we believe the timing is right to add a Head of Capital Markets to the Twin Brook team.

"We welcome Garrett to the team and look forward to leveraging his strong network of relationships and debt capital markets expertise as we continue to deliver strong financing solutions to the middle-market private equity community,” the statement continued.

Founded in 2014 by two former Madison Capital Funding executives, Twin Brook focuses on loans to companies with EBITDA between $3 million and $50 million. Since inception, it has completed 80 transactions, issued $2.3 billion of commitments and attracted over $4.5 billion of committed capital. The company’s parent, Angelo, Gordon & Co., currently manages approximately $26 billion across three core competencies – credit, real estate, and private equity.
