Former Goldman Sachs executive Bruce Mendelsohn has joined Perella Weinberg Partners as a partner in its advisory business, the firm has announced.

Mendelsohn will be based in New York and will lead the company’s restructuring practice. He will work closely with partner Kevin Cofsky and the other members of the restructuring team, according to a statement released on Thursday.

His move to Perella was originally disclosed in early July, with an expected start date around year end. 

Mendelsohn was most recently head of the Americas restructuring group and part of the leveraged finance team at Goldman Sachs. He was with Goldman for 17 years, during which he established an impressive track record running Goldman’s restructuring advisory and rescue financing business where, since 2008, he focused on restructuring advisory, liability management, distressed M&A, and restructuring and rescue financings. He was named a partner at Goldman Sachs in 2010.

“As we expand our world-class restructuring business, Bruce brings a reputation of intensity, integrity and collaboration to the Firm,” said Peter Weinberg, partner and head of advisory at Perella Weinberg Partners, in the statement. “His experience on the financing and liability management side of the business gives him a unique perspective as an advisor, and we look forward to working with him as a partner.”

Perella Weinberg Partners is a leading independent financial services firm providing advisory and asset management services to a global client base including including corporations, institutions, and governments. Together with affiliates, the company’s Asset Management business has capital commitments and managed assets of approximately $8.4 billion.
