Marlborough hires Pedro Manen de Sola-Morales to lead push into Iberian leveraged and corporate debt advisory market

Marlborough Partners, the leading independent pan European debt advisory firm, today announced that Pedro Manen de Sola-Morales has joined the team as Managing Director and Head of Iberia to lead Marlborough’s efforts in consolidating its presence in the Spanish and Portuguese leveraged and corporate debt advisory markets. Pedro will be based in Madrid, where Marlborough has opened a new office, to cover the Iberian Peninsula.

Pedro brings 20 years of financing and debt advisory experience, most recently as Head of Corporate Debt Advisory in PwC’s Debt & Capital Advisory Team in Madrid. Before joining PwC, Pedro had senior roles in leveraged finance and corporate banking teams at RBS, Calyon and BNP Paribas.

Pedro’s appointment will help Marlborough develop its unparalleled track record in advising private equity and corporate clients in relation to debt raisings, refinancings, amendments and restructurings by adding a dedicated coverage and execution capability for Iberian borrowers. Pedro will be building on Marlborough’s completed deal track record in Iberia, the most recent of which being the unitranche financing for Portobello Capital’s acquisition of Vivanta, the leading dental care and aesthetic medicine platform that operates over 265 clinics across Spain.

Commenting on the appointment of Pedro Manen de Sola-Morales, Marlborough Managing Partner, William Allen, says: “We are extremely pleased that Pedro has joined our team. His joining is a mark of the strength of our commitment to the Iberian market and he will be invaluable in further developing our business in Spain and Portugal to both domestic and international clients.”

Pedro Manen de Sola-Morales added: “I’ve long admired Marlborough’s success as Europe’s leading independent debt advisor and am delighted to be joining them to lead the expansion of their business into Iberia through bringing both domestic and, importantly, international capital solutions to the private equity and corporate communities in Spain and Portugal.”
