Golub Capital taps TPG’s Davis as MD for mid-market lending group

Golub Capital has hired Brian Davis as a managing director for its middle market lending group. Prior to joining Golub, Davis worked at TPG where he served as the president and managing director of Sourcing Advisors.


New York–August 6, 2015–Golub Capital announced today that Brian Davis has joined the firm as a Managing Director to develop a network of non-sponsored deals in its Middle Market Lending group. Mr. Davis will be responsible for originating and executing new investment opportunities from intermediaries, service providers and outbound calling efforts. He will be based in Golub Capital’s new middle market lending office in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Mr. Davis joins Golub Capital from TPG, where he founded and was the President and Managing Director of Sourcing Advisors, a business that sourced new investment opportunities for TPG Growth, the US alternative investment firm’s mid-market growth equity platform. Prior to TPG Growth, he was Managing Director and Head of Business Development at Sentinel Capital Partners, where he led deal sourcing and business development efforts. Before joining Sentinel Capital Partners, Mr. Davis was Managing Director and Partner at Deloitte Corporate Finance, where he was responsible for creating and managing the firm’s business development group.

While Golub Capital will maintain its core focus on PE-sponsored deals, the firm believes Davis’ connections and experience should help the firm source more deals in the non-sponsored deal market.

“Golub Capital has over 20 years of experience successfully working with non-sponsored companies. The sources of consistent and quality non-sponsored deal flow are fragmented, leaving attractive potential borrowers under-served,” said Andy Steuerman, Head of Middle Market Lending and Late Stage Lending.

Steuerman added, “Brian brings a great deal of relevant experience and relationships to our team. We are happy to have him join us and to help leverage our presence in this market.”
