Hilco Global 
Gary C. Epstein
EVO Chief Marketing Officer

Over its 28 year history Hilco Global has transformed itself from what began primarily as a disposition business to today’s broad platform of financial services which include acting as an advisor, an agent, and often a principal, with respect to every asset category on the left-hand side of a balance sheet. Hilco Global has become relevant to virtually every investment-grade company and certainly across the gamut of distressed situations that are out there today. Hilco Global adds real value in helping companies around the world and their lenders and investors evaluate and maximize the value of all of their assets including tangible and intangible, real property and personal property, all items that may exist within its core ongoing businesses, discontinued operations, or orphaned subsidiaries which were relevant before, but may no longer be relevant.
