Ansley Park Capital Bolsters Leadership Team with Key Appointments


Ansley Park Capital, a lending and specialty finance platform providing flexible financing solutions for essential-use, large-ticket equipment, appointed two seasoned professionals to its leadership team: Zilong Wang as senior managing director, head of sponsor coverage underwriting and Michael Gay as senior managing director, head of sponsor coverage.

With an illustrious career spanning roles at Barclays and Goldman Sachs, Wang brings extensive expertise in leveraged finance credit risk. Prior to joining Ansley Park, Wang served in key credit risk roles within Barclays’ leveraged finance division and Goldman Sachs’ risk division. Wang’s return to the team marks a significant milestone, having previously been part of the group during its tenure at CIT.

“I am thrilled to be welcoming Zilong back to our team,” Eric Miller, president and CEO of Ansley Park Capital, said. “His industry knowledge, combined with his deep understanding of our organization’s culture, makes him an invaluable asset, as we continue to grow and serve our clients.”

“I am very excited to back working with Eric and the team, it’s an amazing group, now with even ever greater capabilities,” Wang said. “I look forward to leveraging our firm’s expertise and capabilities to provide tailored credit solution to meet our sponsor client need.”

Gay brings more than three decades of experience in the equipment finance industry, with notable leadership roles at Stonebriar Commercial Finance, NXT Capital, GE Capital and Bank of America. His expertise in sponsor finance and large-ticket equipment financing will bolster Ansley Park’s capabilities in delivering tailored financing solutions.

“Michael’s appointment represents the final piece of the puzzle in strengthening our leadership team,” Miller said. “His track record of providing certainty of execution to sponsor relationships aligns perfectly with our commitment to delivering exceptional service and value to our clients. I have known Michael for more than 20 years, and I am incredibly excited to have the opportunity to work with him again.”

“I’m tremendously excited to join Ansley Park and reconnect with former colleagues who share the same commitment to provide P.E. sponsors and their portfolio companies with best-in-class financing solutions and service,” Gay said. “Additionally, with the backing of our shareholder, our platform can leverage significant funding capabilities and credibility. I look forward to leading the sponsor team and establishing Ansley Park as the premier equipment financing platform for sponsor owned companies.”

“I am incredibly optimistic about our company’s growth trajectory,” Miller said. “The addition of Zilong and Michael underscores our commitment to excellence and positions us for continued success in meeting the evolving needs of our clients.”
