Intermediate Capital Group (ICG) has made a private debt hire in New York from US insurer and private credit investor, MetLife. Adam Goodman will join ICG’s North American private debt team as a managing director. 

At MetLife, Goodman was head of mezzanine investments and a portfolio manager responsible for direct private debt, mezzanine and credit fund investments, the London-headquartered credit specialist said. 

“Adam Goodman has a depth of investing experience, and excellent relationships with private equity firms, advisors, and investors across a range of US private debt markets. We are delighted that Adam has joined ICG and are confident that he will add significantly to developing ICG’s North American investment platform,” said ICG’s head of North America, Sal Gentile.

Prior to MetLife, Goodman worked at Allied Capital Corporation, sourcing, structuring and executing principal investments across the capital structure. 

ICG’s North American unit now boasts 27 employees and manages $2.7 billion of assets in private and syndicated credit strategies, the firm said.
