Gordon Brothers, the global advisory, restructuring, and investment firm, announced enhancements to its business development team within its valuation group across North America. These new appointments strengthen the group’s business development footprint across the Northern, Midwestern and Western regions of the U.S. as well as Canada, complementing its presence in the Northeastern, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeastern U.S.



“We’re excited to announce these new additions to our business development team to provide the broadest coverage of any appraisal firm in North America,” stated Frank Grimaldi, Senior Managing Director of North American Sales for Gordon Brothers’ valuation practice.

“All of our new additions are prior commercial & industrial appraisers. They will bring practitioners’ knowledge of the appraisal process and values directly to our clients,” stated Ken Frieze, CEO of Gordon Brothers. “It’s exciting to see talent developed and promoted internally,” he added.

Based in Chicago, Ryan Ray’s client base has expanded to include all of Illinois, Ohio, and Western Pennsylvania. Ray has been active as an appraiser and business development officer in the Midwest region for over 15 years. He holds his Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) certification.

Kaufmann served as a senior appraiser of machinery and equipment and holds his Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and American Society of Appraisers (ASA): Introduction to Machinery and Equipment Valuation certifications.

He previously worked as a senior consumer products and industrial appraisal analyst and holds his Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) certification.

Based in Austin, Aaron Walton has been promoted to managing director in recognition of his continued success in client service.
