Gordon Brothers, a global advisory, restructuring, and investment firm, has added Norma Kuntz as the president, chief operating officer, and a member of the firm’s board of directors.

In her new role, Kuntz will work alongside firm leadership to help guide the firm’s continued growth and set the firm’s strategy. She joins the firm following her time most recently serving as the chief operating officer and chief financial officer of global private equity with The Carlyle Group.

“Norma has joined our firm at an exciting time,” said Ken Frieze, CEO of Gordon Brothers. “With the new CPP Investments partnership, the continued support of Stone Point Capital and over $1 billion of capital available, we’re accelerating the pace of growth, and Norma is a key figure in our future success.”
