Gavin/Solmonese Expands Offices, Launches Website


Gavin/Solmonese managing partners Ted Gavin, CTP, and Joe Solmonese, announced that their firm has expanded its Wilmington, DE, offices, and has launched a new website, www.gavinsolmonese.com.

The 16-employee firm, with offices in seven cities across the country, recently moved its Wilmington, DE headquarters to new, larger offices at 919 Market Street. The offices will accommodate more team members as well as provide for the consolidation of the Narberth, PA office into the Wilmington, DE headquarters.

In addition to offering information regarding the firm’s 30 years of success in turnaround and restructuring strategy, the newly launched website provides details on the Corporate Engagement & Public Affairs services. Led by Solmonese, the practice offers strategic consulting to organizations and corporations concerned with Diversity/Inclusion; Corporate Philanthropy; Public Affairs; Grassroots Campaigns and Political Consulting. Solmonese’s current role as co-chair of President Obama’s re-election campaign, combined with his previous position as president of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), gives him unique insight and access to the external public policy issues that most affect organizations today.

“We are experiencing a period of significant growth at the moment,” said Gavin. “Our bankruptcy and restructuring practice is consulting on a significant number of engagements for a firm of our size, which is exciting for all of us. Joe is building the Corporate Engagement & Public Affairs Group, in addition to his ongoing work in the lead up to the November elections.”

The consulting firm was formed in spring 2012, when Gavin/Solmonese acquired top turnaround firm NHB Advisors, where Gavin served as principal and led the firm
