ABOUT MEMBER

I am experienced executive used to working in financially or operationally stressed situations and advising Boards in such circumstances. I have a consistent track record of success in supporting management teams to deliver both the recovery of businesses and improve the positions of a wide range of stakeholders including equity holders. The objective is to create value at a difficult time and under pressure. I have a proven fact-based approach to meeting this objective.

Whilst I am naturally independently minded, I only ever work for companies and take a strict view that my responsibility is to support my client’s interests. I do not work for Stakeholders but can (and do) help businesses manage them and navigate the path to less difficult times and increased value.

Key skills and experience include:

• Delivering operational turnarounds
• Stabilising businesses in crisis including managing critical cash flows
• Managing stakeholder relationships
• Supporting or managing Finance teams under pressure
• Planning restructuring activities and co-ordinating advisor groups.
• Delivering rapid cost reduction programmes
• Building credible business plans and funding for key stakeholders
• Unblocking sources of key financial information
• Delivering corporate transactions quickly and under cash flow constraints
• Leading financial investigations, restatements and associated processes
