Medley Management, an alternative asset management firm, has appointed Christopher D Allen as a senior managing director and head of structured credit.
Allen was previously a founding partner at CVC Credit Partners, a global investment manager.
He co-founded Apidos Capital Management in 2005, which was merged with CVC Cordatus Group to form CVC Credit Partners in 2012. At Apidos, Allen oversaw the global leveraged loan platform, business development and strategic initiatives. At CVC Credit Partners, he held a number of roles including chief operating officer and head of structured finance origination.
“Chris is highly regarded for his expertise in structured credit and for his track record of building and leading successful teams,” says Seth Taube, CEO of Medley. “His deep experience in structured credit will add significant value to Medley’s investment capabilities as we continue to scale and strengthen our core products for investors.”
“Over the years I’ve watched Medley develop innovative yield solutions for investors,” says Allen. “Joining the team at Medley was attractive to me due to the continuing growth of the platform. I look forward to working closely with the senior leadership at Medley to expand the structured credit business line.”
