Riveron Consulting, a financial consulting firm serving middle-market private equity funds, mezzanine and senior lenders, family offices and public and private companies, has opened a new office in Atlanta and has appointed Tom McGurk as Director of Business Development. Mr. McGurk will jump start Riveron’s presence in Atlanta and the firm anticipates adding more Atlanta-based personnel by year-end.
“Our investment in Atlanta illustrates the execution of our organic expansion strategy, which has been to add key personnel in one or two new markets per year. The Atlanta office will provide a solid base for further expansion into the Southeast, enabling Riveron to more effectively serve current and prospective clients,” said Landon Smith, CEO of Riveron Consulting.
Mr. McGurk comes to Riveron from Visual Risk IQ, where he served as vice president of sales and marketing for the internal audit services firm focused on technological approaches to solving client issues. Mr. McGurk also served as vice president and managing director at Titus, where he helped grow the consulting firm’s Atlanta office over the course of his tenure. He graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Finance.
“Based on direct experience, I can attest that Tom is a proven growth leader who will build the Riveron brand in Atlanta and create rich, long-term relationships with prospects and clients in the Southeast,” said Riveron Managing Director Chaitan Fahnestock.
