NEW YORK, June 15 (LPC) - Apollo Global Management has hired Rina Joshi as a managing director for its global corporate credit team focused on distressed investments, according to a source familiar with the hire.

Natalia Tsitoura joined the firm in London in March to lead its European direct origination team, the source said. She previously worked at Alcentra, according to her LinkedIn profile.
An Apollo spokesperson confirmed the hires.
“Apollo’s credit platform, with over US$200bn under management, is powered by what we believe to be the most talented team in the industry,” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “We’re thrilled to have to Rina, Tiffany and Natalia on board, and excited about the leadership and expertise they bring to our business.” (Reporting by Kristen Haunss; Editing by Michelle Sierra)
