Press Release

New Global Positioning Reflects Continued Evolution of Company

Date October 5, 2016

DJM Real Estate, 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. 

“Since 1998, DJM Real Estate has been part of Gordon Brothers Group. In that time, we have worked with over 300 clients valuing, restructuring and disposing of real estate for leaders in all commercial sectors (retail, restaurant, supermarket, industrial, office, multi-family, special purpose and hospitality) throughout North America,” said Mark Dufton, Chief Executive Officer, Real Estate. “As a result of this new positioning, our expertise will continue to grow and we will be able to quickly and more effectively utilize the connections and capabilities that the entire Gordon Brothers brand brings.”

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. 

Gordon Brothers operates out of 25 offices spread across four continents. International markets include Europe, with a major presence in London, and South America, where the company recently opened offices in São Paulo to assist clients in Brazil and throughout the region. Gordon Brothers will continue to be headquartered in Boston. 

“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.”
