Alternative credit manager Crestline Investors has hired Frank Jordan as head of business development & client partnerships. 

Jordan will be based in Fort Worth and report to the partners of the firm, according to a statement. 

Jordan was most recently co-founder & chief revenue officer for The Bleachers Corporation, an entrepreneurial venture that connects parents, students and the school community via on-demand video streaming. Beforehand, he spent ten years at GoldenTree Asset Management as partner & head of business development, during which time the firm grew from just over $1 billion in assets across two funds and two CLOs to over $15 billion across multiple funds and strategies. 

While at GoldenTree, Jordan raised capital in the U.S., Europe, Australia, Asia (Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea) 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. “We look forward to Frank continuing this tradition with Crestline and feel confident he will play a big part in Crestline’s growth.”

Founded in 1997, Fort Worth, Texas-based Crestline is an alternative investment manager focusing on a broad array of investment solutions including diversified multi-manager hedge fund portfolios, credit and beta/hedging strategies across private credit, specialty lending, CLOs, and opportunistic funds. The company and its affiliated investment team manage around $9.4 billion of assets.
