John Collard, CEO, Chairman of Strategic Management Partners, Inc., said "these are remarkable times for businesses in a troubled world. Turnarounds are like beginning over – they must build teams, differentiate and sell products and services, secure capitalization, and grow. It is a disgrace when CEOs and boards of directors watch value deteriorate and allow their company to become distressed." Collard continued.

Turnaround management strategies and capital raising will certainly play a key role in any recovery."
