Gordon Brothers Europe Becomes Gordon Brothers

Announcement

Date October 5, 2016

Gordon Brothers Europe, an operating unit of the 113 year-old, global advisory, restructuring, and investment firm Gordon Brothers Group, announced today that it, along with all of the other operating units of Gordon Brothers Group, will now be positioned under one name: Gordon Brothers. 

“Gordon Brothers Europe has been a part of the Gordon Brothers brand since 2000. In that time, we have expanded from one office in London to seven offices across the region,” said Heinz Weber, President, Europe. “This positioning builds upon the excitement of the past few years, as it clearly demonstrates to the worldwide market that our expertise continues to grow. We’re now better positioned to deliver all of our capabilities to each client’s unique situation. We are delighted to move forward as one.”

With services in valuations, dispositions, operations, and investments, Gordon Brothers works across numerous industries to help clients put assets to their highest and best use. It is the largest asset appraiser in the world. Annually, Gordon Brothers appraises and disposes of $70 billion in assets. The firm has access to $750 million in capital to deploy around the world. 

“Gordon Brothers has built a strong reputation, backed up by extensive capability and expertise. As a strategic partner, we help clients understand where industries, sectors, and assets are going and help them take action,” said Kenneth Frieze, Chief Executive Officer. “The team is more connected than ever and ready to provide rapid, customized, and guaranteed solutions on an integrated or standalone basis for clients at all points in the business lifecycle.”

Gordon Brothers works with lenders, investors, advisors, and operating companies in the retail, commercial, and industrial sectors. The core dispositions teams already carry the Gordon Brothers name, while a number of business units previously known as Gordon Brothers-AccuVal, Emerald Technology Valuations, GB Energy Partners, DJM Real Estate, and Gordon Brothers Europe will now be under the singular Gordon Brothers banner. 

“This is a proud moment for Gordon Brothers. Over the years, we have acquired firms that specialize in a particular geography, discipline, or sector. These acquisitions enabled us to do more for clients,” said Frieze. “Now it’s time to go to market with one brand that reflects our comprehensive solution set, enabling results that otherwise are seemingly impossible for our clients to achieve.”

Gordon Brothers operates out of 25 offices spread across four continents. In addition to Europe, major markets include North America, where the company is headquartered in Boston, and South America, where Gordon Brothers recently opened offices in Sao Paolo to assist clients in Brazil and throughout the region.
