Skyway Capital Markets LLC, a managing broker-dealer and wholesale securities distribution firm, hired Kevin Gordon as part of expansion plans for South Florida.
Gordon will serve as a managing director in Skyway’s investment banking practice and will focus on adding capacity to facilitate strategic growth objectives in South Florida.
Focused on middle-market companies, Gordon has negotiated, structured and executed a wide range of transactions including both debt and equity capital as well as mergers and acquisitions.
Before joining Skyway Capital Markets, Gordon was a managing director at Ladenburg Thalmann and his own boutique investment banking firm, Capital Road. He also founded three start-up companies including Jellyfish Healthcare, which he sold to Millennia, and Coast 2 Coast Financial Group, which he still leads as chief executive officer.
“We are happy to have Kevin on the team to help service and grow our pipeline and establish a footprint in South Florida which continues to be a thriving, growing market. His experience is deep and broad and will be a great value to our clients,” said Skyway Chairman Marty Traber.
Skyway says this will be the second satellite office for the firm which opened an office in Atlanta last year.
