New York-based credit specialist Brevet Capital has hired Brian Chase as chief operating officer from Madison Realty Capital, a real estate private equity firm focused on debt and equity investment strategies.
In this newly created role, he will be working closely with Brevet CEO, CIO and Co-Founder Doug Monticciolo and other senior team members.
“Brian brings substantial private credit and investment management sector expertise to the Brevet team, and we welcome him to the firm,” said Monticciolo. “Over the past two decades, Brevet has developed exceptional relationships with state, local, federal and foreign government agencies and private companies to best solve complex business situations.”
Monticcolo said that the firm, which has roughly $2 billion in AUM, is positioned for continued growth and that the leadership capabilities will enhance Brevet’s ability to meet the needs of both investors and borrowers.
Chase offers up more than two decades of alternative investment industry experience including private credit, private equity, specialty finance, structured products and commercial real estate.
Formerly of Garrison Investment Group, Chase had been COO/CFO and founding partner at the firm. Now at Brevet he will oversee day-to-day business activities and further the firm’s technology, infrastructure, risk management, strategic planning and new product platforms. He also was CFO for Blackstone’s credit business and before that worked for Fortress Investment Group at the inception of their credit business in 2002. He began his career in 1999 at PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he spent two years auditing hedge funds.
“I look forward to working closely with Doug and Brevet’s talented team, whose unique approach to investing has established the firm as a steadfast, strategic partner to leading enterprises and governmental organizations,” said Chase.
He joins Brevet as the firm has been growing rapidly. For the year-to-date through October 2021, the firm originated approximately 850 financings and continues to expand its seven different financing platforms in three different countries and across two continents.
