Alvarez & Marsal Adds Seasoned Transaction Advisory Professionals

November 01, 2016, 07:13 AM

Leading global professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) continues its commitment to serving clients globally and regionally with the appointments of David Kent and Samira Imamverdiyeva in New York.  With these additions, the Global Transactional Advisory practice has recently made over 30 new hires in the U.S alone to further service clients’ growing needs.

Kent joins as a Senior Director and brings more than 13 years of financial accounting advisory experience working on lower and middle-market acquisitions to multibillion-dollar complex cross-border projects. For the past ten years, he has provided both buy and sell side financial due diligence services to private equity and corporate clients on transactions valued from $20 million to $5 billion.  His areas of expertise include identification and assessment of financial risk areas, quantification of items directly impacting transaction valuation, analysis of key performance indicators, purchase agreement reviews and carve-out transaction implications.

“Our continued expansion to add high quality professionals to our North America transaction advisory practice is a direct result of our private equity clients’ increased demand  for our unique approach of integrating A&M’s deep operational, industry and functional expertise with traditional Big Four financial accounting and tax services, in an environment that is free of audit-based conflicts of interest” said Paul Aversano, Managing Director and Global Practice Leader of A&M’s Transaction Advisory Group.  “A&M’s expanding global footprint coupled with David’s background and level of expertise furthers our ability to advise clients in this environment”.

Kent has served clients across a range of industries, including manufacturing, retail, consumer products, industrial products, business services, information services, technology, media and entertainment. He has also led international due diligence transactions for both private equity and strategic buyers.

Additionally, A&M's Transaction Advisory Capital Markets and Accounting Advisory team has added Samira Imamverdiyeva as a Senior Director. With over 12 years of experience, she brings extensive technical accounting and SEC reporting advice to clients in a wide range of industries. Her sector experience includes asset management, real estate, private equity, financial services, pharma and technology.

“Samira’s accounting and reporting expertise fortifies our best in class capabilities and helps our clients navigate through capital markets transactions and complex accounting issues” said Mike Tamulis, Managing Director with Alvarez & Marsal's Global Transaction Advisory Group.

Privately held since 1983, A&M is a leading global professional services firm that delivers business performance improvement, turnaround management and advisory services to organizations seeking to transform operations, catapult growth and accelerate results through decisive action.
