Cerberus’s Robert Warden Said to Depart for Pamplona Capital

Robert Warden joined Pamplona Capital Management LP as a partner in New York after an 11-year career at Cerberus Capital Management LLC, according to a person with knowledge of the move.

Warden, 39, was a managing director at Cerberus and focused on industrial-company deals, said the person, who asked not to be named because his hiring hasn’t been made public. He worked on transactions with companies including BlueLinx Holdings Inc. (BXC), AerCap Holdings NV (AER) and Aeroplan Holding GP Inc.

Peter Hewer, a spokesman for Pamplona, declined to comment. Peter Duda, a spokesman for Cerberus, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Pamplona, based in London, oversees $6 billion in assets including hedge funds and private equity, according to its website. The firm is backed by Russian billionaire Mikhail Fridman’s Alfa Group and was started by Alex Knaster, former chief executive officer of Moscow-based Alfa Bank.

Cerberus, run by Stephen Feinberg, is seeking to raise $3.75 billion for its next main private-equity fund. The New York-based firm has commitments for about $1.3 billion, a person familiar with the matter said earlier this month. It attracted $7.5 billion from investors for its previous fund.
