Private investment manager for leading family offices taps veteran private equity and private credit leader to head the firm’s operational and financial infrastructure
NEW YORK & DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Family Legacy Capital Management, LLC (“FLC”), a private investment manager for leading family offices, today announced that Robert McEwan will join as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operations Officer. He will be responsible for leading the firm’s finance, accounting and operations functions, and will provide support to FLC’s investment managers, One Thousand & One Voices (“1K1V”) and FLC Credit Partners.
Mr. McEwan has more than 15 years of experience building and scaling businesses across the private equity, private credit and hedge fund landscapes. He most recently served as Chief Financial Officer for H.I.G. Capital’s credit platform, which had approximately $17 billion in commitments. In this role, he led and managed the credit platforms’ finance, accounting, operations, valuation and investor reporting teams. Previously, Mr. McEwan was a Managing Director and Chief Operations Officer for Blackstone Alternative Asset Management’s (“Blackstone’s”) special situations direct investing platform, which managed approximately $10 billion in AUM across various fund structures, where he led day-to-day operational management of the business. Mr. McEwan worked at Ernst & Young, LLP prior to Blackstone.
“We are thrilled to welcome Robert to FLC’s leadership team and excited about the value he will add for the benefit of our LPs,” said Hendrik Jordaan, Chairman and Co-Founder of FLC. “Our ability to attract an executive of Robert’s caliber and pedigree is a true testament to the potential, scalability and uniqueness of FLC’s platform. Over the course of his career, Robert has worked with some of the most rigorous institutions in financial services and helped put the infrastructures and teams in place to foster growth. Robert will play an integral role as we continue to scale FLC and the investment vehicles within it.”
FLC launched FLC Credit Partners in May 2021, providing financing solutions to capital-constrained, lower-middle market companies in North America. It particularly addresses the capital needs of family and entrepreneur-owned businesses. FLC Credit Partners achieves this through creative private credit solutions from a financial partner that is aligned with and understands the dynamics inherent in these types of companies given that its investor base consists entirely of leading family offices.
1K1V is a private equity fund whose family only limited partners invest their Intellectual, Relational and Financial Capital, or “Three-Dimensional Capital,” in sub-Saharan Africa. 1K1V’s portfolio companies have exported over $60 million of product from Africa to over 30 countries and have created thousands of jobs, resulting in economic support to tens of thousands of people.
“The offering Hendrik and his team have put together is unlike anything I have seen in the market, particularly its LP base of leading family offices,” said McEwan. “The opportunity to join FLC at this stage of its development is incredibly exciting and I look forward to implementing all that I have learned in my prior positions and using it to continue to build out the firm’s already institutional-quality infrastructure.”
Mr. McEwan holds a bachelor’s degree in accountancy from University of Glasgow and a master’s degree in finance from University of Strathclyde. He is a licensed Certified Public Accountant in New York State and is a qualified member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Scotland (ICAS).
