Supply chain financier Greensill Capital has grown its distribution team with five hires – each filling new positions – since the end of August.
The team’s newest recruit is Michel Meylacq (pictured), who has joined as a senior associate in distribution, funds management. Meylacq was previously at AIG, where he had been for the last five years, most recently as a senior underwriter working in trade credit.
Speaking to GTR, he explains that his responsibilities at Greensill include assisting with day-to-day funds management tasks, supporting the origination team, managing the onboarding of new obligors, and aiding Greensill with innovation and technological advances in futures distribution.
His hire follows that of Sally Singer, who joined Greensill in September as a director in the distribution team. Singer has 20 years of investment banking experience in a variety of roles, such as equities and commodities and structured credit, at institutions including Deutsche Bank, BNP Paribas, Morgan Stanley and, most recently, UBS.
Both Meylacq and Singer are UK based and report to Ludwig Sels, Greensill’s managing director and global head of funds distribution.
Greensill’s distribution team is divided into three sub-teams – funds, banks and fixed income – and in August an analyst was hired to each of these: Alex Lishak was brought on to focus on funds, James Bluck joined the banks sub-team and Matteo Bertacca joined fixed income.
“All new joiners are filling new positions, supporting the expansion of the business and the distribution capabilities of Greensill,” says Meylacq.
