Our Directors

Matthew Gordon

Managing Director, New York

Matt Gordon is an investment banking professional. His philosophy is to help clients realize extraordinary value through the flawless planning and execution of liquidity/exit events, financings and the acquisition of strategically complementary businesses and assets that foster aggressive sustainable growth.

Matt began his career as a mergers and acquisitions attorney, working for the largest and most established legal firms on Wall Street, including Sullivan & Cromwell and Fried Frank, where he represented some of the world's largest companies and financial institutions in a variety of corporate and M&A transactions. His experience includes both domestic and cross-boarder transactions in manufacturing, technology, financial services, advertising, telecom and pharmaceutical sectors, among others.

He left the traditional legal practice when he was hired by one of his clients, a European telecom company, to lead their mergers and acquisitions group. Eventually asked to lead their US division, Matt spearheaded a number of acquisitions and rationalized the entire partnership/acquisition process. As the head of the US division, he revamped the US business plan to capture a 90% increase in operational efficiency.

Several years ago, after learning first hand the problem facing middle market companies receiving substandard finance and transactional assistance, if any at all, during what were usually the most important transactions of the owners' lives, Matt decided to devote his energies to filing this void for middle market clients.

Matt attended Cornell University, where he received his BS in economics and policy analysis and the University of Pennsylvania School of Law, where he received his JD, with honors. Matt brings a wealth of transaction experience along with a sophisticated financial perspective to Oak Street Advisors, where he serves as the managing director of our New York operations.
