As Head of Capital Solutions, Mr. Brown will be a key member of the firm’s senior leadership team in the London office.

He will partner with Bregal’s Capital Formation team to manage and build relationships with investors while working closely with Mr. Carrier and senior leadership to help shape the overarching strategy and growth plans for Bregal and its underlying funds.

Mr. Brown brings significant private equity experience to Bregal’s senior leadership team. He most recently served as Managing Director and Head of PE Funds & Secondaries at Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (“CPP”) Investments, one of the world’s largest investors of private capital.

“Joining Bregal’s leadership team at such a pivotal time of strategic growth and having the chance to work once again with Alain and Ryan is an incredible opportunity,” added Mr. Brown.

“I am a firm believer that the Bregal platform represents excellence in the middle market, offering its investors access to global investment opportunities with a compelling set of risk-adjusted returns. I’m looking forward to working in partnership with Bregal’s established Capital Formation team as we continue to grow the platform in the years to come.”
