Tuesday, May 23, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - Craig Goos has joined GPB Capital as Managing Partner and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Goos, who has more than 20 years of experience in wealth management and financial services, will work closely with the GPB executive team to develop and implement plans for enhancing operations and meeting the organization's objectives for rapid growth.

"We recently surpassed $1 billion in assets under management, and Craig's extensive experience in this industry will prove to be a valuable asset to us as we continue to foster greater collaboration at every level of our organization to scale to achieve our next level of growth," said David Gentile, Founder and CEO of GPB Capital. "Effective communication and meaningful engagement with our clients is vital for ensuring that they benefit fully from our income-producing private equity approach."

Mr. Goos is based in GPB's New York headquarters and reports to Mr. Gentile. His core focus will center on collaborating with the management team to create initiatives to improve the operational infrastructure of systems, processes, and personnel, in order to accommodate the firm's goals for growth.

In addition, Mr. Goos will serve as a liaison between GPB and Ascendant Capital, the firm's exclusive partner for distribution, product structuring and investor relations. "I am proud to become part of the GPB Capital family, and I look forward to playing an important role in helping to effectively manage, and efficiently grow, the organization," said Mr. Goos. "Facilitating seamless and meaningful communication among our operating companies and the investors who benefit from their success will contribute significantly to positioning the firm for rapid growth."

Previously in his career, Mr. Goos was Managing Director of Alternative Investments at UBS Wealth Management, where his team was responsible for approximately $13 billion in assets.
