Family Legacy picks veteran CFO to expand

The experienced private equity CFO brings chops to the manager’s operations and financial infrastructure.

Family Legacy Capital Management of Denver, which manages private investment funds for family offices, has hired a well-seasoned CFO to build out its infrastructure and investment platforms.

Robert McEwan will join the firm as CFO and COO, leading and building out its finance, operations and accounting functions and infrastructure.

McEwan will also support FLC’s sub–Saharan African private equity fund, One Thousand and One Voices, or 1K1V, and the firm’s new private credit business.

McEwan has more than 15 years experience growing firms across the private investment landscape, most recently serving as CFO of H.I.G. Capital’s credit platform, with about $17 billion in commitments. Previously, McEwan worked as managing director and COO of Blackstone Alternative Asset Management’s special situations direct investing platform, with $10 billion under management spread across various fund structures.

FLC’s new CFO “has worked with some of the most rigorous institutions in financial services and helped put the infrastructures and teams in place to foster growth,” said Hendrik Jordaan, chairman and co-founder of FLC. McEwan will “play an integral role as we continue to scale FLC and the investment vehicles within it.”

Family Legacy’s credit offering – FLC Credit Partners, which launched in May of this year – aims to serve capital-constrained lower mid-market clients, particularly family-owned businesses. FLC says it understands these companies because its entire investor base consists of family offices.
