Emily Stecher has joined Pretium as managing director and chief operating officer of the $50 billion firm’s business development team.
In the newly created role, she is responsible for bolstering the firm’s product and strategy creation, as well as optimizing client engagement efforts.
Founded in 2012, Pretium focuses on U.S. residential real estate, residential credit and corporate credit. Last fall, former PGIM executive Frank Garcia was hired to spearhead portfolio management for Pretium’s single-family rental (SFR) fund strategy while engaging and informing the firm’s global client relationships.
“As we continue to expand the exceptional team we have in place, Emily’s significant experience stewarding diverse strategic initiatives will be an invaluable asset as we enhance our platform and capabilities,” said Lee Alexander, senior managing director and chief operating officer at Pretium.
Stecher served most recently as managing director, head of U.S. Wealth Management Alternative Sales at Goldman Sachs, where she was responsible for distributing alternative investment products to U.S.-based financial intermediaries. Prior to that she was a vice president, head of product strategy and development and a vice president in the Alternative Capital Markets group at Goldman Sachs.
“Emily is a dynamic leader, and we are thrilled that she’s joined the Pretium team,” said Jennifer Strickland, senior managing director and head of business development at Pretium. “Her background and direct and insightful approach make her the perfect fit for Pretium, and I look forward to working with her to advance our product development and capital raising capabilities, while continuing to optimize how we engage with clients.”
