Goila To Aequitas Capital

Sep 4 2014 | 3:32pm ET

Portland, Ore.-based asset manager Aequitas Capital has hired Goldman Sachs alum Thomas Goila as senior managing director of private credit and private equity.

Goila worked for the past nine years in Goldman's special situations group as a senior investment professional in the specialty lending group and prior to that served as an associate for BNP Paribas' healthcare finance group and as an analyst for First Union Capital Markets healthcare finance.

In his new position at Aequitas, Goila is responsible for finding transactions that offer attractive risk-adjusted returns, identifying unique opportunities that will be sourced through numerous channels and funded via Aequitas in partnership with other capital partners and clients.

Goila will report to Aequitas CEO Robert Jesenik and work with Jason MacRae, senior managing director of the specialty finance group, who joined Aequitas earlier this year as part of its acquisition of Maple Bay Asset Management, an investment company specializing in consumer and small business loans, where he was co-founder and CEO.

Founded in 1993, Aequitas Capital sources, structures, and implements private credit and private equity solutions for institutions and high-net-worth clients.
