Senior role entails pushing 'ambitious digitization plans' at the service provider.

Citco announced that it has chosen Claudia Bertolino, an experienced Citco insider, as its new head of private equity and private credit. The position was vacant and previously called head of private equity, a spokesperson told Private Funds CFO, but it was updated “to reflect the growing need to recognize private credit as its own offering.”
