Alvarez & Marsal Adds to Corporate Restructuring Team

Global independent professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal has appointed Gabrielle Reijnen as a managing director within its corporate restructuring team for the Benelux in Amsterdam.

Prior to joining A&M, Reijnen was head of Corporate Coverage and a member of the management team with RBS in the Netherlands. At RBS, she was involved in capital structuring (event-driven) financing, M&A and risk management situations for clients in a number of industries.

Just Spee, head of A&M’s Restructuring Group in the Benelux, said: “In the current uncertain economic environment across Europe we see rising demand for our specialist restructuring services, which includes taking temporary management positions in troubled companies needing assistance. The firm made a decision some time ago to invest in our Benelux-based practice as we feel our business model of using experienced advisors with hands-on operational know-how across a range of industries is particularly well suited to these markets. With the addition of Gabrielle Reijnen we have complemented our senior Amsterdam-based team with strong financial restructuring skills.”

Before moving to RBS, Reijnen was managing director in Global Clients Energy & Resources at ABN AMRO in Amsterdam, where she managed teams and executed numerous transactions involving multi-product acquisition financing, refinancing and corporate finance advisory mandates. She also spent seven years in corporate finance/M&A with ABN AMRO and five years in equity capital markets with ABN AMRO Rothschild, working on assignments in Europe and Asia.
