Gilbertson has been described as unbelievably resilient by sources. “He’s hard working, a man of few words, a reputation for getting the deal done,” said one source. “He’s got very loyal client relationships and he’s been a long time trusted advisor for Fletcher Building in particular.” This includes advising Fletcher Building on its NZ$1.3bn takeover of Australia’s Crane Group, New Zealand’s largest on-market takeover of an Australian public company. Gilbertson also featured prominently in the New Zealand government’s partial sell-down of key assets last year, including Mighty River Power and Meridian. He took the lead advisor spot for the government on Mighty River.
