John Crocker joins Atlantic-Pacific as partner in private funds business

Atlantic-Pacific Capital, a placement agent and advisory firm, has appointed John Crocker as a partner in its private funds business.

As part of Atlantic-Pacific’s global distribution team, Crocker will focus on marketing private equity, real estate and infrastructure funds in Australia and New Zealand.

Additionally, Crocker will assist in originating and executing due diligence on new mandates for Atlantic-Pacific worldwide.

“As part of Atlantic-Pacific’s unique model, I look forward to servicing GP and LP clients from a global, independent firm with a true ‘ownership’ culture managed by its partners and principals,” says Crocker.

“John’s addition effectively complements our current institutional platform, which already has a strong footprint in North America, Europe and Asia,” says Vincent Ng, an Atlantic-Pacific Capital partner in Hong Kong. “We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome John aboard.”

Crocker has spent more than 20 years in the alternative investments space, serving as a limited partner, general partner and placement adviser. In these roles he has committed capital to over 100 different funds, sponsored the establishment of new limited partnerships as a general partner and assisted in raising capital from institutional investors globally.

As a limited partner, Crocker has served on the advisory boards of a number of private equity buyout and venture capital funds, including Thomas H. Lee Partners, Providence Equity Partners and Phoenix Capital Partners. As a general partner and fund sponsor, Crocker served on both fund investment committees and fund management boards.

Previously, Crocker was a managing director in Citi’s private funds group, where he played a leading role in origination, project management and distribution.

Prior to joining Citi in 2005, Crocker was a partner at Capital Z Investment Partners, a sponsor of alternative investment managers.
