Salient Partners Announces Executive Promotions and New In-house General Counsel Role

HOUSTON, Oct. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient Partners, L.P. ("Salient"), a diversified asset management firm and leading provider of alternative and real asset investment strategies, today announced two executive promotions and the introduction of a new in-house general counsel position at the firm.

Salient president Jeremy Radcliffe has been promoted to president and chief strategy officer and relocated from Salient's Houston headquarters to San Francisco to oversee the integration of Forward Management, LLC ("Forward"), following Salient's acquisition of Forward in June.

Mr. Radcliffe co-founded Salient in 2002 and has held the title of president since 2013.  He leads several of the firm's noninvestment functions, including strategy, marketing, events and investor relations. Mr. Radcliffe will continue to report to Salient chief executive officer John Blaisdell.

"Jeremy's focus on executing the strategic vision of our firm, through the alignment of Salient and Forward's teams into one combined unit and continued development of a unified Salient culture, will be critical to our successful integration of Forward. There is a tremendous amount to accomplish in the coming months and having Jeremy on the ground in San Francisco will ensure Salient accelerates its long-term vision to push beyond the conventional approach to investing," said Mr. Blaisdell.

David Linton, previously managing director and head of distribution for Salient's intermediary and retail clients, has been promoted to executive vice president and head of distribution in charge of institutional, intermediary and retail client development for both Salient and Forward. Mr. Linton will continue to report to John Blaisdell.

"We believe that integrating our institutional and intermediary sales efforts will increase our effectiveness and better leverage our resources across the firm," said Mr. Blaisdell.  "David brings considerable leadership and sales management experience to this endeavor and will play a critical role in the growth of our institutional client base."

Salient has hired Jonathan DePriest to join the firm in the newly created role of executive vice president and general counsel. Mr. DePriest will be based in San Francisco and provide legal guidance on all matters across the firm. He will report to Mr. Blaisdell.

Prior to joining Salient, Mr. DePriest was a shareholder and management committee member at Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Aughtry, a law firm headquartered in Houston, Texas. He practiced corporate, securities and finance law at Chamberlain, Hrdlicka for 21 years, specializing in assisting asset managers in all aspects of their businesses. Mr. DePriest acted as counsel to asset managers in sale-of-control and noncontrol positions in their businesses, strategic acquisitions, and the structure and launch of private funds and other investment funds. Mr. DePriest graduated from Trinity University with a B.A. in economics and has a J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law.

"Since Salient's founding in 2002, Jonathan has advised and counseled our firm from his post at Chamberlain, Hrdlicka and his breadth of expertise has been instrumental to our success. I'm thrilled to welcome him on board at Salient and know having him on our team will greatly benefit our entire firm," said Mr. Blaisdell.
