Angelo Gordon Hires Scott Soussa As Chief Strategy Officer

Angelo Gordon is hiring Scott Soussa, a Senior Managing Director at Blackstone and formerly co-Head of BAAM’s Strategic Capital Group. Soussa will be joining Angelo Gordon as Chief Strategy Officer, a new role, in April 2022; he will report to Josh Baumgarten and Adam Schwartz, Angelo Gordon’s co-Chief Executive Officers.

“We are thrilled to have someone of Scott’s caliber join Angelo Gordon. Scott brings unparalleled insights and perspectives into the alternative investment management sector and we look forward to his contributions as we continue to execute on our strategic priorities," said Baumgarten.

“Scott’s experience across a range of strategies and geographies and his depth of knowledge of industry best practices will be invaluable as we continue to chart our course for continued success on behalf of our clients. We could not be more excited to welcome Scott to Angelo Gordon and look forward to introducing him to our limited partners in due course," added Schwartz.

Soussa is the first senior appointment by Baumgarten and Schwartz since they assumed the co-CEO roles on January 1, 2021, as part of a leadership transition that saw co-Founder Michael Gordon step back from the day-to-day management of the firm. Soussa has spent the past two decades at Blackstone; most recently, he played an integral role in building Blackstone’s GP stakes business. He has also led the firm’s hedge fund seeding business since 2016. Prior to joining Blackstone in 2003, Soussa was Controller of Lava Trading Inc., a securities trading technology company.
