Our BTG Global Advisory (“BTG GA”) affiliates, B. Riley Advisory Services in the USA and TCP Partners in Brazil, have partnered to open an office in Mexico — B. Riley Advisory Services de Mexico.
The new operation will be led by Gaston Mauvezin, a seasoned executive with decades of regional experience—including in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina—across the automotive, financial services, real estate, agribusiness, industrial and consumer sectors.
We are delighted to announce the extension of our geographic reach into Mexico.
