NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pretium, a leading investment firm with $14 billion of managed assets, today announced that Jennifer Strickland has joined the firm as Co-Head of Business Development. Ms. Strickland joins Pretium with two decades of business development experience, most recently with PIMCO where she served as Executive Vice President since 2012.
Ms. Strickland’s hire follows an active 2019 for Pretium that included multiple strategic transactions that expanded Pretium’s investment offerings and capabilities.
Pretium, the largest private manager and operator of single-family rental homes, completed a banner transaction in October 2019 for its flagship single-family-rental fund and has been a consistent thought leader in the space. That same month, Pretium broadened its residential credit franchise by acquiring a leading mortgage originator and mortgage servicer. Last month, Pretium announced it had acquired Latigo, a distressed credit platform.
Ms. Strickland is joined by several recent additions to Pretium’s growing business development team: Giovanna Loiotile (previously from Highbridge and Davidson Kempner), Loc Vukhac (previously from Investec and BlackRock), and London-based Eugenie Dadachpour (previously from Heitman). In addition, Pretium recently announced it had hired Amar Kuchinad (previously from Trumid and Goldman Sachs) and Ian McAllister (previously from Electronifie and Credit Suisse) to partner with the firm’s expanding businesses and enhance their data and technology capabilities.
Donald Mullen, CEO and Founder of Pretium, said, “We are excited to welcome Jennifer and our newest colleagues to Pretium and look forward to leveraging their collective experience and strong track record of successfully partnering with investors.”
Ms. Strickland said, “I am thrilled to join Pretium’s talented team and further the firm’s mission of developing unique solutions for our global clients.”
Prior to joining PIMCO, Ms. Strickland was Managing Director, Investors Relations at BlueMountain Capital Management and previously served as Director of Investors Relations at HBK Capital Management.
