Argosy Capital Group, a lower-middle-market private investment firm, has hired Sherry Gao as chief financial officer.

Gao will lead the firm’s finance, accounting and treasury functions. She joins Argosy from Centre Lane Partners, where she was chief financial officer. Prior to Centre Lane, Gao was chief financial officer of MatlinPatterson. Gao will report to Sarah Roth, who became Argosy’s CEO in January 2022 and will fully transition her CFO duties over to Gao.

“Sherry brings a wealth of experience across private asset classes as CFO of Centre Lane Partners and MatlinPatterson,” states Roth. “We look forward to working with Sherry as she provides strategic and execution input to the Argosy Capital asset divisions and finance team.”
