Valuation and auction industry veteran Ben Gibson will head the new Perth office of global advisory, restructuring and investment firm Gordon Brothers.  It is the Boston-based firm's third office in Australia after setting up in Sydney and Melbourne in 2017.
 

Gordon Brothers chief executive Frank Morton described the Perth office as an important milestone for the firm as it continued to expand its international operations. 
 

"Perth is an important market for us," he said.  "Having boots on the ground there will be critical to our success in serving the Australian market with the liquidity solutions businesses need to thrive."
 

In July, Gordon Brothers undertook its biggest asset investment in Australia so far, acquiring the 300-piece mining equipment portfolio of Cleveland-Cliffs Koolyanobbing iron ore operations.
 

Mr. Gibson joins Gordon Brothers having been the Perth-based executive director of restructuring and finance for Tiger Asset Group nationally.
 

Before that, he was the general manager for the WA operations of Graysonline.
