New York, NY (PRWEB) July 09, 2012
Goldin Associates, LLC is pleased to announce that veteran hedge-fund manager and former CEO of Murray Capital Management, Marti P. Murray, will join the Firm as a Managing Director and a member of the Firm’s Management Committee effective August 6, 2012. In 1995, Murray founded Murray Capital Management Inc., an investment fund with peak assets under management of $750 million that focused on distressed-debt, high-yield and special -situation investing. In 2008, the distressed-debt business of Murray Capital was acquired by Babson Capital, where Murray led the distressed-debt investing group until co-founding an independent financial consulting practice, Murray & Burnaman. Earlier in her almost three-decade-long financial services career, Murray worked at Bank of America, Oppenheimer & Co. and Furman Selz.
Ms. Murray adds an exciting new dimension to Goldin’s financial-advisory and litigation-support practices. Her experience in distressed debt includes valuing underperforming credits and troubled companies, investing across a wide array of industries, serving on official and ad-hoc creditor committees, and taking leading roles in negotiating complex corporate restructurings. Her areas of expertise include hedge-fund trading, management and best practices. As a consultant, she has advised or testified for parties in a variety of contested matters involving restructuring, valuation, hedge-fund management and trading. Her background and expertise will be an important complement to the range and depth of services Goldin offers its clients. Goldin will also benefit from Ms. Murray’s entrepreneurial vision as it continues expansion of its financial-advisory platform.
Ms. Murray is an award-winning Adjunct Professor at the NYU Leonard N. Stern School of Business. She has taught courses to M.B.A. students on bankruptcy and distressed-debt investing, as well as valuation and equity analysis. She regularly speaks and publishes on various topics, including distressed investing and hedge-fund risk management. Ms. Murray holds an M.B.A. in Finance from the NYU Leonard N. Stern School of Business and a B.A. from Colgate University in World Affairs and Chinese.
Ms. Murray said, “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the outstanding team at Goldin and I look forward to serving both existing and new clients on the Goldin platform. Goldin has been involved with many recent high-profile restructurings and litigation matters, including, among many others, Lehman Brothers, Tribune, Lyondell Basel, AbitibiBowater and Jefferson County, Alabama. At Goldin, I will be bringing my investment fund and trading background to join a highly accomplished and experienced team with a broad reach.” Goldin’s founding Managing Director, Harrison J. Goldin, said, “We are extremely lucky to have Marti joining our Firm. Our clients will profit greatly from her unique expertise and insightful perspective.” Executive Managing Director David Pauker said, “Marti will be an invaluable asset to our Firm in servicing our clients and in helping guide the future growth of our business.”
