Gordon Brothers expands Corporate Recovery & Valuations team with launch of new Leeds office
Date February 2020
The US global advisory, lending and investment firm, Gordon Brothers, has further grown its UK presence with the launch of a Leeds office, providing local support to the rising business demand in the region.
The office, which is strategically located within the financial district of Leeds, will oversee the growth of the Gordon Brothers corporate recovery and Global valuations business across the North-East and into Scotland.
Headed up by newly appointed Director, David Swift, the Leeds office will bring Gordon Brothers’ unique blend of expertise and investment to support regional lenders, private equity investors, operating executives and professional advisors with services that focus on valuing assets, refinancing, and operational restructuring of businesses, within the commercial, and industrial sectors.
David Swift commented: “This is an exciting step for Gordon Brothers, the North of England is a thriving business hub and with our established business in Manchester we are eager to support existing and new clients in the North.”
David joined Gordon Brothers in 2017 bringing more than 20 years’ experience in asset valuation. He started his career with Fairfield Auctions before establishing himself at Edward Symmons and Lambert Smith Hampton. Heading up the Leeds office, David will continue to support the regional market, develop contacts and grow the Gordon Brothers business.
Duncan Ainscough, Managing Director, commented: “Gordon Brothers has a successful track record as restructuring specialists, having completed hundreds of projects across Europe for healthy, stressed and distressed businesses. Adding a further regional office in the North will provide local support to our existing clients and help drive new business, as we look to expand the Leeds office in the coming months.”
