CapX Partners promoted Ryan Elsass to vice President. Elsass is now focused primarily on business development in multiple geographical regions. The company also promoted Taira Masciantonio to associate. She now has a concentrated role in new asset underwriting and portfolio management. Both will be based in CapX’s Chicago office.

According to managing partner, Jeffry Pfeffer, “These promotions are in recognition of both employees’ hard work and dedication to the firm and to support the organization’s continued growth.”

Elsass joined the firm in 2013. Before joining CapX, he worked in the alternative investment division at Goldman Sachs and prior to that was a management consultant at PricewaterhouseCooper.

Taira Masciantonio joined CapX two years ago. She previously was an analyst for PNC Financial Services in the ABL financing group and before that, in the corporate and institutional banking program.

CapX Partners is a specialty finance company that focuses on private equity and venture backed portfolio companies looking for debt financing in the $2 million to $20 million range.
