John Judge

Chief Client Strategist

John and his team utilize deep-rooted experience in banking, financial analysis and long-term investing across a wide range of industries to objectively assess the challenges facing both our current and potential clients, as well as their untapped opportunities, and leverage that knowledge to enhance and inform the advice we provide across the firm.

Prior to joining Teneo, John was Head of Fundamental Credit Risk at Quadrant Structured Investment Advisers, Inc., a majority-owned investment management subsidiary of Magnetar Capital. At Quadrant, he and his team were responsible for investment selection based on their own deep-dive financial analysis of hundreds of mid- to large-size corporations. Throughout John’s tenure, Quadrant had a compounded annual return of 20%, compared to less than 2% in the S&P for the same period.

Prior to Quadrant, John spent six years at Citigroup, primarily as Senior Credit Officer, managing the bank’s North American credit exposure to the technology, media, telecommunications and gaming industries. He and his team were responsible for overseeing, from a risk perspective, the structuring, negotiation and documentation of new transactions and for ongoing maintenance and monitoring of the portfolio, including: credit analysis, deal restructuring and active risk mitigation. Also while at Citigroup, John was a senior banker in Global Loans Capital Markets with responsibility for structuring, negotiating and syndicating debt to large corporate clients in the consumer, retail, shipping and chemicals industries.

John first joined Citigroup through Salomon-Smith Barney, where he was brought in to manage and restructure the firm’s distressed debt exposure resulting from the dot-com bubble.

Before joining Citigroup, John was a Senior Banker at Credit Lyonnais, responsible for marketing financing alternatives and investment banking products to media and telecom clients and prior to that, managed a portfolio of debt to highly leveraged borrowers for the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi.
