Emad joined 17Capital in 2019, having previously held senior roles at J.P. Morgan and Nomura. He has worked on almost every transaction since joining, including 17Capital’s first NAV-based credit transaction, in which the firm partnered with a top-tier pan-European manager. Stephen Swentzel, Richard Golaszewski and Owen James have been appointed Managing Director following their significant contribution to 17Capital’s rapid growth in recent years. 17Capital has also made a number of other promotions, which reflect the team’s strength. These include Nicolo Colombo to Investment Director and Cristian Vasquez to Fund Controller in the finance team. Senior Advisors Dee Dee Sklar and Beverly Berman have joined 17Capital’s Supervisory Board to assist with advising on firm-level decisions such as new strategy launches or key hires. 17Capital has one of the few majority female boards in the private capital industry.

These promotions are a testament to the quality and breadth of our team across our London and New York offices, and I congratulate all of them on their achievements. Following a record year of deal activity in 2020, the enhancement and institutionalisation of our firm – through promotions, new hires and the expansion of our Supervisory Board – is important to ensure we are best positioned to continue to capitalise on the accelerating trend for preferred equity and NAV-based credit as vital value creation tools within the private equity industry.”
