John Collard, CEO, Chairman of Strategic Management Partners, Inc., said "these are interesting times for businesses in a troubled world. Turnarounds are like beginning over again – they must build teams, differentiate and sell products and services, secure capitalization, and grow. It is a disgrace for CEOs and boards of directors who allow their company to become distressed and watch value deteriorate." Collard continued. "Turnaround Management specialists can be an option to stabilize the situation and rebuild value. Turnaround management strategies and capital raising will certainly play a key role in any recovery." ### Principal:
