James Gabb specializes in providing turnaround and crisis management, merger and acquisition services, and financial restructuring advisory to companies, creditors, and equity investors. He leads workouts, capital raises, and industry-shaping transactions by finding creative methods to execute operational turnarounds, optimize recovery, and improve returns on stressed and high-growth investments.

Mr. Gabb’s recent roles have focused on the gaming and leisure travel industries.

Before joining Capstone in 2007, Mr. Gabb was a manager at a global accounting, consulting, and corporate finance firm. Within that firm’s M&A Transaction Services group, he advised private equity and strategic buyers on due diligence, carve-out, deal structuring, and financial reporting aspects of transactions ranging in size from $10 million to $30 billion, and he successfully executed large sell-side carve-outs for global strategic clients. His career began as an auditor, where he served a diverse client base that ranged from middle-market manufacturing companies to Fortune 500 corporations.
