Skyway expands to Miami, hiring Kevin Gordon to lead the effort

Skyway has hired Kevin Gordon as part of expansion plans for South Florida.

Mr. Gordon will serve as a Managing Director in the Investment Banking practice and will focus on adding capacity to facilitate strategic growth objectives in South Florida.

Focused on middle-market companies, Mr. Gordon has negotiated, structured and executed a wide range of transactions including both debt and equity capital as well as mergers and acquisitions.  Drawing on a wide range of experiences in commercial and investment banking as well as having been the CEO of three start-up operating companies brings a holistic approach to his client’s transactions.

Before joining Skyway Capital Markets, Kevin was a Managing Director at Ladenburg Thalmann and his own boutique investment banking firm, Capital Road. He also has founded three start-up companies including Jellyfish Healthcare which he successfully sold to Millennia (portfolio company of Pamlico Capital) and Coast 2 Coast Financial Group which he still is the CEO.

“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,” remarked Skyway Chairman Marty Traber. This will be the second satellite office for the firm which opened an office in Atlanta last year.

Skyway is an investment banking firm with two main lines of business, including sell-side M&A representation for family- and founder-owned businesses; and providing market leading managing broker/dealer services that include origination, structuring and wholesale distribution of high-quality alternative investment vehicles to the Independent Broker-Dealer and Registered Investment Advisor communities.
