London-based George Slade will join the firm as a partner, according to a statement seen by Secondaries Investor.
“Having worked with George for many years, as have several members of the Fairview team, I have always been impressed with [Slade’s] judgment, integrity and deep understanding of our industry,” Calo said. “We look forward to the contributions he will make to better serve our clients.”
Slade joined Park Hill Group when it was part of Blackstone in 2013. He has almost eight years of experience focusing on secondaries advisory, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Further senior additions will be made to the team both in Europe and the US, Calo added.
Fairview, which describes itself as neither a placement agent nor M&A adviser, is an independent partner-owned secondaries adviser focusing on GP-led processes. Calo launched the firm in 2019 with offices in London and New York and staff in Washington, DC and Johannesburg, as Secondaries Investor reported.
The firm has since added Singapore and Mexico City to that list, according to the statement.
