Pemberton appoints Graeme Dell as Chief Operating Officer


Pemberton, a leading European private credit manager transforming traditional credit markets, announces the appointment of Graeme Dell as the firm’s new Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Graeme joined Pemberton on 1st July 2021 and brings over 30 years of financial services experience in private equity, asset management, equities broking and investment banking, most recently at private equity firm BC Partners, where he was COO for the last seven years.

Prior to BC Partners, Graeme was the Group Finance Director at Ashmore Group Plc from 2007 to 2014 and The Evolution Group Plc from 2001 to 2007. Previously he held senior roles with the Operations, Technology and Finance Divisions at both Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs.

Graeme takes over his role at Pemberton from Thomas Lack, who retired at the end of June to explore other interests outside the asset management industry.

Welcoming Graeme into the Pemberton leadership team brings us deep industry experience across private equity and fixed income and further strengthen our resources to capture the opportunities in private credit and expand the firm. We look forward to bringing Graeme’s skills and experience to bear in supporting our clients as we continue to grow the business in the coming years.

We also extend our thanks to Tom for his hard work and dedication in his time with us and we wish him and his family well for the future.

Having observed Pemberton’s trajectory these past years, and more recently got to know in detail the professionalism and expertise it deploys in pursuit of its service to investors and borrowers, I am excited by the scope of what we, as a firm, can achieve.
