Global advisory, restructuring and investment firm Gordon Brothers has appointed a previous NAB head of hub, strategic business services to its Australian team.
Samantha Findley will take the role of director, special situations in Australia.
She is reported to have more than 15 years’ experience as a workout banker, restructuring and insolvency professional and client adviser.
In her new role, Ms Findley will be responsible for steering clients through restructuring programs and portfolio management.
Tim Stewart, head of Australia for Gordon Brothers said: “Samantha has been a [long-time] creative problem-solver for distressed companies across all industries, and her fresh perspective and expertise will allow us to contribute new ideas to clients and broaden our scope of solutions.”
“We are excited that she will contribute to continued growth in our special situations capabilities.”
In her prior role with NAB, Ms Findley led a countrywide team that managed the bank’s small and medium-sized client impaired asset portfolio.
Gordon Brothers reported she had “pivotal roles” in some of the country’s largest restructuring transactions.
Prior to her previous role, Ms Findley was an executive director with advisory and investment firm KordaMentha. She was with the company for around 14 years.
She has also been an associate director on group strategic business services at NAB and a business analyst at EY.
