John Collard, CEO, Chairman of turnaround firm Strategic Management Partners, Inc. said "these are opportunistic times for troubled businesses. It is a disgrace for CEOs and boards of directors who allow their company to become distressed and watch value deteriorate." Collard continued. "Turnaround specialists are often a great option, to stabilize the situation and rebuild value. We focus on building companies in which investors and lenders want to invest their precious capital, and locating new capital. Turnaround management strategies will certainly play a key role in recovery."
