Boutique investment firm Oxford Park Group is adding Barry Goldberg to its senior ranks.
Mr. Goldberg, formerly the global head of mergers and acquisitions at Canaccord Genuity, is joining the firm as a principal and will run its credit group, Oxford Park Credit, which will extend loans to small and mid-sized companies.
Mr. Goldberg will maintain ties with Canaccord Genuity, serving as a special adviser. In this role, he will be paid a retainer, and then earn bonuses for any deals he works on, according to someone familiar with the matter.
Earlier this year Oxford Park named former Canaccord Genuity investment banking head Phil Evershed as its chief executive. Mr. Evershed and Mr. Goldberg know each other well, having been co-founders of Genuity Capital Markets.
Oxford Park group is part activist fund, part lender. In June the company announced it had acquired a 5-per-cent stake in Extendicare and intends to work with the company "to improve share performance and create shareholder value."
