Marlborough Partners, the independent leveraged debt advisory firm, has added two new members to its team. Taddeo Vender has joined as Associate Director and David Schulte as Analyst, bringing the team to eleven. This follows the recent appointment of Markus Ehrler as Partner to lead Marlborough’s new office in Frankfurt.
Taddeo Vender previously worked in KKR’s Capital Markets team, sourcing leverage and advising on capital structures for private equity investments, company refinancings and exits across Europe, raising more than €3bn in loans, high yield bonds and equity capital. Transactions in which he was involved include the acquisition financing for UK subsea services provider, Acteon; the high yield financing for German forklift manufacturer KION; and the super senior revolving credit facility ‘upsize’ for the Spanish aviation services company, Inaer. Earlier in his career, Taddeo worked at Credit Suisse in the Leveraged Finance Origination team, covering financial sponsors.
David Schulte previously worked, after internships at DZ Bank and Doughty Hanson while taking his degree and MSc, as an analyst in Macquarie’s debt advisory and leveraged finance team in London, advising and providing debt capital to corporates and to financial sponsor-backed transactions.
To accommodate its expansion, Marlborough Partners has recently moved to larger offices in The Prow, just off Glasshouse Street, W1.
