BC Partners adds managing partner for new credit business

Ted Goldthorpe, former president of Apollo Investment Corp. and head of Apollo Global Management’s senior lending group, joined private equity firm BC Partners as a managing partner in charge of launching a credit business, said people close to the firm.

It is a new position. Mr. Goldthorpe oversees the new business unit, BC Partners Credit. He is based in New York.

Mr. Goldthorpe resigned his Apollo positions in June.

Apollo Global Management officials declined to comment further, a firm spokesman said.
