Placement agent Eaton Partners is to open its seventh international office in Chicago in April 2016. This new office – which joins Eaton Partners' current offices in Hong Kong, Houston, London, Rowayton, San Diego, and Shanghai – will help further develop the firm’s global investor network and placement capabilities.
Managing Director Christopher Maduri will lead the new location within the Stifel Financial Corporation's Chicago office space located at 70 W Madison Street.
"We see tremendous value in having an on-the-ground presence in Chicago as it allows us to further strengthen client and institutional investor relationships in the region," says Peter Martenson, Partner and Head of Distribution at Eaton Partners.
"The new office location and space in Chicago is a prime example of how our affiliation with Stifel allows us to elevate our global platform and expand our local footprint," says Charlie Eaton, CEO at Eaton Partners.
Maduri, who has over 13 years of professional management experience, focuses on Eaton Partners' private equity, real estate, credit and real asset fund distribution. He is a native to Chicago and will be returning to his hometown following five years at the firm's San Diego office. Prior to joining Eaton in 2011, Maduri worked for Triton Pacific Capital, a private equity firm, and Heitman, a real estate investment management firm based in Chicago, among others.
Since the acquisition by Stifel Financial Corporation in January 2016, Eaton Partners has been implementing strategies to elevate its placement business by leveraging Stifel's platforms and infrastructure.
