North Sky Capital appoints new Chief Financial Officer
North Sky Capital (“North Sky”), a specialist in impact private equity and sustainable infrastructure investing, has appointed Angela Wood as Chief Financial Officer, while North Sky’s long-time CFO, Denise Galvin, will be transitioning to a part-time role as Senior Advisor, where she will continue to provide advice on strategic decisions.
“First and foremost, I want to publicly express our gratitude and appreciation to Denise for her dedication and invaluable help in building North Sky into a market leader in impact investing. She has been instrumental to our success, and we could not have done it without her. We are very pleased she has agreed to stay on as a Senior Advisor,” says Scott Barrington, North Sky’s CEO. “We are also delighted to welcome Angie to the North Sky team. She brings 20 years of experience in financial services and investment management, including stellar performance at another Twin Cities private equity firm that we know well.”
Most recently, Wood served as CFO and Chief Compliance Officer of Sawtooth Solutions, an SEC-registered investment advisor, where she oversaw the firm’s financial, treasury, administrative, human resource and compliance functions. She chaired Sawtooth’s Compliance Committee and also served on its Investment Committee and Information Security Committee. Prior to that, Wood was Vice President of Finance and Administration and Chief Compliance Officer of Mill City Capital, a Twin Cities private equity firm, where she also managed the financial, treasury, administrative, human resource and compliance functions. She also enjoyed a 14-year career as a tax accountant at PwC and Baker Tilly.
Wood earned bachelor’s degrees in Accounting and Actuarial Science from the University of Minnesota Duluth and is a Certified Public Accountant (currently inactive).
“Angie is the perfect successor to Denise, who has been integral to our growth as a firm since joining North Sky in early 2007,” says Gretchen Postula, North Sky’s Head of Investor Relations and Chief Compliance Officer. “We are thrilled to have Angie as part of our team and confident Denise will continue to play an important role as a Senior Advisor.
As Senior Advisor, Galvin will continue to oversee the firm’s 2020 audit and year-end reporting cycle to its investors, and will work collaboratively with Wood to transition the firm’s financial, treasury, administrative and human resource functions over the coming months. Going forward, Galvin will remain involved on a part-time basis, working closely with Barrington, Potsula and Wood to oversee the firm’s operations, compliance and finance functions while providing advice on strategic decisions.
“We are grateful to Denise for her more than 14 years of service,” says Danny Zouber, North Sky Managing Director. “We are excited to work with Angie to continue to grow our impact investing business in the years to come.”
