Stephen Conway, Citigroup Inc.’s former head of private equity advisory in Europe, is joining PennantPark Investment Corp., according to a person familiar with the matter.
Conway will head the New York-based firm’s European operations, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the plans are private. PennantPark focuses on lending to medium-sized businesses, according to its website.
Aviv Efrat, PennantPark’s chief financial officer, didn’t respond to two telephone calls seeking comment on the matter. Jeff French, a London-based spokesman for Citigroup, declined to comment. Conway didn’t reply to a message sent via LinkedIn Corp.’s website.
Conway previously worked as UBS AG’s head of financial sponsors, and head of European financial sponsors at JPMorgan Chase & Co.
