Permira Debt Managers is pleased to announce the appointment of Dan Hatcher as Investment Director to lead the UK origination of opportunities for PDM’s direct lending fund, providing flexible credit solutions directly to private businesses. The hire brings the total team size to 17.
The first close of Permira Debt Managers’ direct lending fund was held in October 2014 at approximately €400m. The fund seeks to address the gap in the market providing medium-sized businesses with the investment that they cannot obtain from traditional banks or the bond market.
Dan brings a wealth of experience in leading the origination and execution of direct investments, following seven years in mid-market private equity with Gresham Private Equity and Palatine Private Equity, and seven years in EY’s transaction advisory services team. He has worked on a number of high profile deals, including: ICR Integrity, IESA, 7City Training and James Grant Group.
