Pemberton expands international reach with senior hire in the US


Pemberton, a leading European private credit manager transforming traditional credit markets, today announces the appointment of a Managing Director to the firm’s Business Development team, Sanford ‘Sandy’ Ewing who joined on 5th July 2021 and brings more than two decades of experience in the field.

Sandy will support Pemberton’s international expansion, which is set against a backdrop of growing international demand from investors for European private debt. He joins Pemberton as a Managing Director for North America, where he will be responsible for all aspects of investor coverage, client servicing and consultant relations across the North American market.

He was previously Co-Head of Marketing & Investor Relations at Cross Ocean Partners, a special situations credit and aviation asset manager based in the US and UK. Prior to this, Sandy was a principal and founder of diversified boutique credit broker-dealer Chapdelaine Credit Partners. He also spent 15 years in credit distribution and investment banking at Lehman Brothers. Sandy will report into Scott Hamilton, who heads business development in North America and joined Pemberton in November 2020.

Pemberton has one of the largest pan-European investment teams working across eight locations throughout Europe, as well as a growing presence in North America.

Sandy joins the Pemberton team at a period of significant international growth for the firm. We look forward to leveraging the wealth of expertise he brings in business development, strategic leadership and investor relations to support our clients and grow our business across North America. The asset class has demonstrated its resilience through the Covid-19 pandemic and we expect North American institutional investors to increase their allocations to Europe.

– Symon Drake-Brockman, Managing Partner of Pemberton

Pemberton has a growing investor base in North America and is entering an exciting stage in its development in the region. Its pan-European investment platform and ability to deploy capital across Europe’s private credit markets are perfectly suited to the growing demands of US and Canadian institutional investors. I look forward to working closely with the team to further Pemberton’s growth ambitions in North America and enhance our existing relationships while also building new ones.
