Hilco Corporate Finance (HCF) named Richard S. Klein senior managing director of its New York office. Klein will further expand the range and experience of Hilco Corporate Finance’s special situation and restructuring investment banking services. Before joining Hilco Corporate Finance, Klein held senior positions in the restructuring and special situations investment banking practices of Raymond James, Miller Buckfire and Jefferies.

With nearly 27 years of investment banking experience, Klein has advised boards of directors, official and ad hoc creditors’ committees, private equity sponsors, and various creditor constituencies on an array of restructurings, including Chapter 11 plans of reorganization, out-of-court restructurings, section 363 asset sales, rescue financings and exchange offerings involving more than $75 billion of restructured liabilities. His industry experience spans aerospace and defense, consumer and retail, gaming, healthcare, industrials, restaurants and technology.

“As HCF continues to expand the range and depth of its special situation advisory services, we are thrilled to add Rich to our team. He is a distinguished and talented investment banking leader with wide experience in all aspects of complex distressed corporate financial restructurings,” Teri Stratton, senior managing director and national practice leader of special situations and restructuring at Hilco Corporate Finance, said. “With his depth of knowledge and broad network of relationships within the financial community, he has the ability to strengthen and grow our New York practice to meet the needs of our expanding client base.”

“I was drawn to the opportunity to join HCF and lead the expansion of its New York office at this important time in the firm’s development,” Klein said. “I am very excited to be part of HCF’s plan to provide industry leading advisory services in distressed and special situations.”

“Over the past 18 months, we have expanded our business by reimagining how capital advisory services can best be provided to middle-market clients,” Geoffrey Frankel, the CEO of Hilco Corporate Finance, said. “From M&A advisory to private capital markets services to special situations and restructuring advisory, we are building our practice from the client’s point of view, focusing on a solutions-oriented — not just transactional — approach. Rich understands and shares our passion for superior client-centric service for middle-market companies.”
