Direct Lending + Mezz to distressed debt or special situations?

Curious as to others opinions and the community's consensus but is it possible to move from a direct lending/mezz shop like a Ares, Golub, Varagon, PennantPark, Maranon, or THL credit that can invest up and down the capital structure to a special situations or distressed debt fund?

The more complicated the deals you work on at a direct lending/mezzanine shops the more valuable you will become to special situations and distressed debt fund. Definitely doable.
