Fifth Street Finance Corp (FSC) and Fifth Street Senior Floating Rate Corp (FSFR) have promoted Steven Noreika (pictured) to chief financial officer. He replaces Richard Petrocelli, who is leaving Fifth Street to pursue other opportunities, the Connecticut-based lender announced in a statement. Alexander Frank remains chief financial officer of Fifth Street Asset Management (FSAM), the parent company of the two business development companies (BDCs).

Prior to his promotion, Noreika was serving as the chief accounting officer of FSAM. Noreika joined Fifth Street in September 2008 and since then, has held various finance and accounting positions at the firm, including chief financial officer of FSFR from November 2013 to July 2014.
