Gordon Brothers, the global advisory, restructuring and investment firm, has appointed Samantha Findley to be Director, Special Situations in Australia. Findley will help clients to use the strength of the Gordon Brothers balance sheet and the company’s expert knowledge to resolve liquidity issues and execute restructuring programs.
Findley brings more than 15 years of experience as a workout banker, restructuring and insolvency professional and client advisor.

Findley comes to her new position from an Australian bank where she headed a countrywide team that managed the bank’s small and medium-sized client impaired asset portfolio. She has in-depth understanding of the Australian market, as she has held pivotal roles in some of the country’s largest restructuring transactions.
