ICG, a global alternative asset manager, has hired David Lomer as head of U.K., Nordics and Benelux for its European corporate strategy, and a member of the investment committee. Lomer succeeds James Roddis, who is retiring after 14 years with the firm.

Lomer joins ICG after 24 years with J.P. Morgan, where he looked to build businesses into positions of leadership. Most recently, Lomer was co-head of U.K. investment banking with the company. He has spent his career based in London, New York, San Francisco and Madrid, gaining international experience as a dealmaker.

“I am delighted to welcome David to ICG, and thank James for his significant contributions over many years,” says Benoit Durteste, CIO and CEO of ICG. “David brings extensive experience of M&A and capital markets transactions to the European Corporate team, and we look forward to his leadership as we continue to develop our business in the UK, the Nordics and Benelux.”

“I’m enormously excited to be joining at this dynamic time for ICG – following the outstanding €8.1 billion fundraise for the eighth vintage of the European Corporate strategy, our momentum and capabilities have never been stronger,” comments Lomer. “I look forward to working with such a well-established team to build further on our highly successful track record of providing flexible capital solutions to companies across Europe.”
