Renee Rempe joined Comvest Partners as a managing director in the firm’s direct lending group, Comvest Credit Partners. Rempe will be based in Comvest’s Chicago office and will be responsible for managing and directing strategy on investments within Comvest Credit Partners’ portfolio.

“We are very pleased to have Renee join the team at Comvest,” Greg Reynolds, partner and co-head of direct lending at Comvest Credit Partners, said. “Her long, accomplished career managing debt investments across various economic cycles is a great complement to the Comvest Credit Partners team and we look forward to her contributions to the strategy. Additionally, many of us at Comvest Credit Partners have worked with or alongside Renee throughout our careers and it’s great to have the opportunity to work with her again as a leader within the team.”

Rempe has more than 25 years of experience managing and restructuring middle market loan assets, including senior management roles within Heller Financial/GE Capital Commercial Finance and GE Antares Capital/Antares Capital. Most recently, Rempe was with Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC).

“Comvest has an outstanding track record and I look forward to applying my restructuring experience to enhance their team and strategy,” Rempe said. “My background and experience is well suited to the areas of the market where Comvest Credit Partners has established a leading brand, including non-traditional sponsor lending and less competitive sectors of the middle market. These sectors require a hands-on, entrepreneurial approach to oversight, and I believe my background will further complement Comvest Credit Partners’ proven ability to manage complex situations.”

Comvest Credit Partners provides senior secured, unitranche, second lien and mezzanine capital as well as equity co-investments.

Comvest Partners is a private investment firm providing equity and debt capital to middle-market companies across North America.
