TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 03, 2016) - Timbercreek Asset Management today announced the appointment of two new senior hires who will help execute on strategies to build and grow the firm both domestically and abroad.
Recently named one of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies in the 28th annual PROFIT 500 list, Timbercreek continues to build momentum towards global expansion with the addition of Brad Trotter as Managing Director, U.S. & European Debt and Cam Goodnough as Managing Director, Corporate Development.
Joining Timbercreek's New York office, Mr. Trotter will be a key member of the senior leadership team, and will focus on strategic growth opportunities outside of Canada. He will play an important role in helping the firm determine and drive expansion of its existing debt platform.
With 25 years of experience across North America, Europe and Asia as a Business Leader and CFO with GE Capital, Mr. Trotter brings a wealth of global knowledge and expertise to Timbercreek. He has extensive experience in the financial services sector and has led more than $25 billion of real estate debt and equity transactions, managed portfolios of up to $22 billion in size and directed large teams across multiple geographies.
Cam Goodnough will work out of the firm's Toronto-based corporate head office and in his role as Managing Director, Corporate Development, will focus on evaluating strategic initiatives and support product development around new verticals, geographies and initiatives. He will also assume the role of VP, Finance & Corporate Development for Timbercreek Financial.
Mr. Goodnough holds significant experience in capital markets and investment banking, with 17 years at firms such as CIBC Wood Gundy, Merrill Lynch Canada, RBC Capital Markets and as Managing Director with the Financial Institutions Group at TD Securities.
"We're thrilled to welcome both Brad and Cam and the unique expertise they bring to our growing team," said Blair Tamblyn, Senior Managing Director & CEO, Timbercreek Asset Management. "Whether looking at institutional, ultra high-net-worth, or broader based retail audiences, we have seen continued growth in capital allocations to the alternative asset classes this past year. We believe these key additions will better position us to continue to identify compelling, active investment opportunities for our clients in multiple jurisdictions."
Mr. Tamblyn noted that Timbercreek now manages more than $5.5 billion in assets across its various lines of business. The firm recently opened its newly built corporate headquarters in Toronto and expanded its global reach with the opening of a regional office in Hong Kong.
