The experienced THL Credit team is led by Co-CEOs Chris Flynn and Sam Tillinghast. They serve on the direct lending investment committee along with Terry Olson, COO and CFO, Jim Fellows, CIO, and Monty Cook and Howard Wu, Managing Directors and Co-Heads of Direct Lending. Cook and Wu are responsible for transaction origination, underwriting and execution."We take pride in our five-office footprint and the regional deal flow we are able to secure across the industry sectors where we focus," said Flynn. "Lower middle market sponsors are increasingly seeking lenders with long-term capital and deep domain expertise who can provide flexible solutions for their debt and equity financing needs." An additional advantage of THL Credit's investment strategy lies in the fund's ability to co-invest with the firm's publicly-traded business development company, THL Credit, Inc. (NASDAQ:TCRD). In addition to its co-investment ability, THL Credit Direct Lending Fund III and its affiliated vehicles will benefit from the existing scale and infrastructure which supports TCRD. THL Credit's previous direct lending fund, THL Credit Greenway Fund II, managed by THL Credit, Inc., which also focused on middle market private debt and direct lending, raised $187 million in 2013, and invested in 25 companies.
