Angelo Gordon, a USD44 billion alternative investment firm focused on credit and real estate investing, has appointed Scott Soussa, Senior Managing Director at Blackstone and formerly co-Head of BAAM’s Strategic Capital Group, as Chief Strategy Officer, effective April 2022. 

In this new role, Soussa will report to Josh Baumgarten and Adam Schwartz, Angelo Gordon’s co-Chief Executive Officers.
Baumgarten, co-CEO and Head of Credit at Angelo Gordon stated: “We are thrilled to have someone of Scott’s calibre 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.”
Adam Schwartz, co-CEO and Head of Real Estate at Angelo Gordon, adds: “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.”
Soussa is the first senior appointment by Baumgarten and Schwartz since they assumed the co-CEO roles on 1 January, 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 successful GP stakes business and identifying and working with world-class alternative investment managers globally. 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.
Soussa received a BS in Accounting from Binghamton University, where he graduated summa cum laude and was elected to Beta Gamma Sigma. He is the Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board of Michael’s Mission, a charity focused on improving the quality of life and treatment options for colorectal cancer patients, families, and caregivers. He is a Certified Public Accountant.
