Tikehau Hires Ex-Blackstone Executive Debra Anderson

Tikehau Investment Management, a Paris-based investment firm, hired former Blackstone Group LP (BX) executive Debra Anderson to expand its credit business in Europe.

Anderson, a senior managing director at Blackstone’s credit affiliate GSO Capital Partners LP until 2012, will work with Tikehau’s Patrick Marshall in London, the firm said in an e-mailed statement today.

At GSO, Anderson established Blackstone’s European collateralized loan-obligation business and co-managed the unit’s European customized credit strategies. Before joining Blackstone in 2005, Anderson was a leveraged loan manager at Intermediate Capital Group Plc (ICP) and ran Abbey National’s leveraged and acquisition finance lending business.

Tikehau IM was founded in 2007 by Tikehau Group as a fixed-income specialist unit. The company’s investments include real estate and regulated funds, according to Tikehau’s website.
