Crestline Investors added Frank Jordan as managing director, head of Business Development and Client Partnerships. Jordan will be based in Fort Worth, TX and report to the partners of the firm.
Jordan spent 10 years at GoldenTree Asset Management as partner and head of Business Development and was a member of GoldenTree’s executive committee. During his time there, the firm grew from just over $1 billion in assets across two funds and two CLOs to more than $15 billion across multiple funds and strategies.
Jordan raised capital in the U.S., Europe, Australia, Asia and the Middle East from a wide range of investor types, including public pensions, insurance companies, banks, fund of funds, corporate pensions and sovereign and superannuation funds. He also personally managed all key consultant and private bank relationships.
“Frank has a proven history of delivering the highest quality investment products to his institutional clients and relationships,” said Douglas Bratton, managing partner and CIO of Crestline.
Prior to GoldenTree, Jordan was a partner of High Yield Sales at Wasserstein Perella, where in 1998 he was voted Institutional Investor’s High Yield salesman of the year, following the execution of a trade to clear Long Term Capital Management of a large block of bonds.
Earlier in his career, Jordan also spent time with Citibank and Salomon Brothers in various sales and marketing roles.
Jordan was most recently co-founder & chief revenue officer for The Bleachers Corporation, an entrepreneurial venture which connects parents, students and the school community via on-demand video streaming.
