Hilco Corporate Finance Expands Investment Banking Advisory Team

Hilco Corporate Finance, Hilco Global’s investment banking advisory firm, appointed Josh Goldberg senior managing director for consumer and retail M&A and Alina Mardesich managing director for commercial real estate finance.

Based in New York, Goldberg has nearly two decades of experience advising middle-market companies across the consumer, retail and business services sectors on various transactions. Goldberg has closed more than 60 transactions throughout his career. His experience includes sell-side M&A, buy-side M&A, growth capital raising advisory and refinancing.

Prior to joining Hilco Corporate Finance, Goldberg was a managing director of Threadstone Capital. He is a CFA charterholder.

“What excited me about joining Hilco to build the healthy M&A advisory practice is the sheer depth of experience and network within the Hilco Corporate Finance team, as well as the Hilco Global organization,” Goldberg said. “I was impressed with the strength of the existing Hilco Corporate Finance team in both special situations and capital markets and, with a new M&A Advisory team, Hilco Corporate Finance is positioned to provide investment banking services to our clients at every stage and circumstance of our middle-market clients.”

Based in Los Angeles, Mardesich has three decades of experience advising middle-market investors/developers across all real estate asset classes across the U.S. Mardesich has executed numerous commercial real estate financings, with a focus on capital raising, lending, investing, acquisition, strategy and business plan execution. During her three-decade career, she has advised on underwriting, loan structuring and asset performance on nearly $2 billion in opportunistic commercial real estate opportunities.

Prior to joining Hilco Corporate Finance, Mardesich was a senior director at George Smith Partners in Century City, CA.

“I’m excited to be a part of a growing team and helping to build and expand Hilco’s commercial real estate advisory services,” Mardesich said. “I was drawn to Hilco’s entrepreneurial culture, collaborative spirit and expansive professional network serving middle-market clients worldwide.”

“Over the past 24 months, HCF has expanded our business by reimagining how investment banking advisory services can best be provided to middle-market clients,” Geoffrey Frankel, CEO and senior managing director of Hilco Corporate Finance, said. “Encompassing capital advisory, M&A advisory and special situations/restructuring investment banking services, we continue to build our practice from a client’s point of view, focusing on a solutions-oriented, not merely a transactional, approach. Josh and Alina both understand and share our passion for superior client-centric service for middle-market companies.”
