Robert Horak

Managing Director
Chicago Debt Advisory +1 (312) 580-2804
I am driven by the opportunity to work on important transactions with intelligent, creative people who are focused on building businesses that are the backbone of the American economy.

Bob raises debt capital and arranges financings for a variety of transactions, including acquisitions, mergers, dividend recapitalizations and refinancings. His clients include private equity sponsors, independent sponsors and private companies.

With nearly 30 years of experience in lending and advisory roles, Bob has become a trusted advisor to private equity and other business owners. Bob focuses on the complex and continuously evolving lending markets, so clients can focus more of their time on primary return-generating activities.

Prior to joining Lincoln, Bob was a Vice President for GE Capital’s global sponsor finance business and an Assistant Vice President for Heller Financial, Inc.
