Leadership

Virtus Partners was started in 2005 as a groundbreaking administration solution for credit managers.  The name Virtus comes from Ancient Rome and embodies concepts of excellence, character, and courage. It took courage for the founding partners to step out on their own and start a new firm that would fulfill their vision of an independent company;  combining cutting edge technology and exceptional customer service, they would better serve clients in the structured credit industry.  The partners represent not only the founders, but also the integral partnership shared between the founders, the employees and the clients.
