Antares taps ex-JP Morgan exec for loan-syndicate desk after 40-year veteran retires

  • Peter Nolan worked at JP Morgan for 14 years
  • Kevin Burke spent 12 years at GE Capital
  • Burke retiring after 40 years in the trade

Antares Capital executive Peter Nolan in 2017 takes up the reins as senior managing director, head of loan syndicate sales and trading, after a 40-year veteran in the trade retired, the Chicago lender said.

Kevin Burke is officially retiring Dec. 31. Along with his two years at Antares, Burke for 12 years oversaw loan sales and trading at GE Capital. He also spent 25 years at Bankers Trust /Deutsche Bank holding positions in credit, corporate finance and trading.

For 14 years Nolan was managing director on the leveraged-finance capital-market desk at JP Morgan before joining GE Capital in 2013 as a member of its capital-markets team. In 2015, General Electric sold Antares to Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Nolan moved to Antares. Earlier in his career, Nolan worked at Bankers Trust.

David Brackett, managing partner and co-CEO of Antares, in a statement welcomed Nolan’s input into “one of the top loan syndicate, sales and trading teams in the middle market.”

“We look forward to Peter’s continued contributions as he takes on this new role,” Brackett said. “We would also like to express our gratitude to Kevin for his extraordinary contributions to our business and the industry as a whole.”

With offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Norwalk, Connecticut, and Toronto, Antares has helped provide more than $120 billion in financing over the past five years.
