Antares Capital appointed Timothy Lyne as senior managing director and co-head of Sponsor Coverage and Vivek Mathew as head of Asset Management and Funding.

Based in Chicago, Lyne will be responsible for leading the company’s sponsor coverage activities on the East Coast. He previously served as head of the firm’s Asset Management Group which last year added more than $3 billion of targeted loan commitments for third party investors. Lyne is a founding partner of Antares and was responsible for West Coast sponsor coverage activities for Antares and GE from 1996 through 2011.

“Tim is an innovative and thoughtful leader who brings tremendous value to both his clients and teams,” said David Brackett, managing partner and co-CEO of Antares Capital. “His strong commercial focus will be a tremendous asset to our sponsor business as we continue to grow and evolve in a competitive and dynamic market.”

Based in New York, Mathew has led the firm’s funding efforts since he joined in 2016. He previously served as managing director, head of Global Primary CLO Business at JPMorgan. Prior to joining JPMorgan in 2005, Mathew was vice president, Structured Finance at Deutsche Bank.

“Vivek hit the ground running since he joined Antares less than two years ago,” said John Martin, managing partner and co-CEO of Antares Capital. “We are confident under Vivek’s leadership, that by combining our efforts in Asset Management with diversifying funding, we will continue to further enhance Antares’ position as a premier player in the private debt space.”
