Pantheon makes secondaries promotions

San Francisco-based Kevin Dunwoodie has been made partner, one of two to make the step up in this round of promotions.

Pantheon has made a raft of senior promotions, including two on the secondaries side of its business.

Kevin Dunwoodie, a San Francisco-headquartered member of the secondaries investment team, has been promoted to partner, according to a statement from the firm. He was previously a principal.

He joined Pantheon in 2008 after stints at Morgan Stanley, Pacific Corporate Group and Deutsche Bank, according to an attached biography.

New York-headquartered secondaries vice-president Alec Brown has been promoted to principal, the statement also noted. He came to the firm in 2016 after a two-year run in the private funds group at UBS, according to his LinkedIn page.

Dunwoodie is one of two to be promoted to partner. The other is Imogen Richards, Pantheon’s global head of investment structuring and strategy, who works out of the London office.

Pantheon announced more than 45 promotions across the organisation, 18 of which are in its investment team. All Pantheon investment professionals below vice-president work on primaries, secondaries and co-investments, Secondaries Investor understands.

In August last year, Pantheon’s global private equity secondaries head Elly Livingstone stood aside after 13 years. His role has been split between London-based Matt Jones and New York-based Rudy Scarpa.

The firm is in market with Global Secondary Fund VI targeting $2 billion, Secondaries Investor reported in June.

Pantheon had $42.3 billion in assets under management as of 30 June across primary private equity, secondaries, co-investments, real assets and private debt.
