Apollo Commercial Real Estate Finance Names Mironova as Financial Chief - MarketWatch

By Robb M. Stewart

Apollo Commercial Real Estate Finance Inc. on Monday named Anastasia Mironova as its next chief financial officer.

Ms. Mironova, who joins the real-estate investment trust from BDO USA LLP where she was a partner focused on public REITs and debt funds, is expected to take on the role of financial chief, secretary and treasurer at the beginning of the second quarter, the company said. Before her start, Chief Executive Officer and President Stuart Rothstein would serve as interim CFO, following the departure of Jai Agarwal.

Apollo Commercial has been looking for a new financial chief since Mr. Agarwal in late August told the company he planned to resign. His decision to step down wasn't the result of any dispute or disagreements with the company over any matters related to its operations, policies or practices, the company said at the time.
