3i Debt Management appoints investor relations Director in Asia
3i Debt Management (“3iDM” or the “Company”) has announced the appointment of Lisa Johnson as a Director, focused on investor relations in Asia, and based in Singapore. Her appointment demonstrates 3iDM’s commitment to expand its business in Asia and to focus on developing its client relationships.
Lisa brings strong investor relations experience having worked in a similar role at Parker Global Strategies, most recently as Senior Vice-President, where she was responsible for developing and maintaining strategic relationships with a variety of investors. Lisa has worked in a number of cities across Asia, including Singapore, Mumbai and Shanghai, for the last seven years. She has built strong and long-lasting relationships with leading investors including sovereign wealth funds, family offices, pension funds, endowments and foundations.
Jeremy Ghose, Managing Partner and 3iDM CEO commented: “Lisa’s appointment is an important step in realising our ambitions to build a global credit platform and client coverage model. Our expanded business will ultimately strengthen our investment offering and provide Asian investors with access to the European and US private debt space. We are pleased to have her join the team.”
Lisa Johnson commented: “3i Debt Management has an excellent reputation built on a heritage of trusted relationships, strong experience and a proven track record. I look forward to working with the team to help build out 3iDM’s business in Asia.”
3i Debt Management has grown substantially since its launch in 2011.
