Vince Capurso comes back to GGCP and GAMCO as general tax counsel
Vince Capurso has rejoined GGCP, the investment adviser and brokerage services provider to mutual funds and institutional investors, as general tax counsel. He will re-assume the position of executive vice president and chief financial officer. He has also rejoined GAMCO Investors as general tax counsel.
Capurso first joined GAMCO in 2000 as vice president and tax counsel and GGCP in 2001 as executive vice president and CFO. He became a member of GGCP’s board in 2008, when he also joined its board of advisers to advise the company on tax, finance, legal and business matters.
Capurso, a certified public accountant and tax attorney, has just spent more than three years as senior vice president, tax and senior tax counsel of AMC Networks, the broadcaster of shows such as Breaking Bad, Mad Men and The Walking Dead. During his time there, the company was spun-off from Cablevision and completed a $1 billion international acquisition of Chellomedia from Liberty Global.
Before AMC Networks, Capurso was head of tax for Barnes & Noble, the bookseller, for more than five years during its digital and international expansion. Before joining GAMCO in 2000, he led the tax function of Wasserstein Perella Group, the global investment banking and private equity firm, for more than five years.
