Permira, a $32 billion private equity shop, has appointed John Coyle, the former global head of the financial sponsor group at JPMorgan Securities, as a partner.
Coyle will be responsible for running the office with Tom Lister, co-managing partner of Permira and co-head of the New York office.
Previously, Coyle was responsible for originating and executing transactions for private equity firms in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific at JPMorgan.
“We are thrilled to bring a person of John’s caliber to Permira and simultaneously strengthen and deepen the Permira team in North America,” said Lister. “He is a world-class talent whose leadership, experience, and global contacts will help to bring our North American activities to the next level.”
