Macquarie Capital, the corporate advisory, capital markets and principal investing arm of Macquarie Group, has added Greg Ager as managing director in its software and services group.

In his new role, Ager will focus on providing advisory and capital-raising services to software companies offering supply chain management, manufacturing and enterprise resource planning services. Ager was most recently managing director at DC Advisory where he focused on the enterprise software and software-as-a-service sectors, having joined the firm when it acquired Signal Hill, where he served as a partner and a member of the operating committee. Earlier, Ager worked at Updata Advisors and Wachovia Securities, where he led east coast software coverage.

“We believe that innovative and transformative supply chain and manufacturing software firms will continue to seek capital and strategic transactions to accelerate growth and help them gain market share in industries that need to address supply chain vulnerabilities and further digitize their manufacturing processes,” comments Sam Shah, co-head of Macquarie Capital in the Americas and global head of software and services. “Greg brings tremendous expertise to support Macquarie Capital’s deep conviction in this space.”
