Distressed Interim Management

Repositioning leadership

Steady Hands in Uncertain Times

Distressed businesses — whether they are undergoing formal bankruptcy reorganization or needing acute intervention in the face of major operational challenges — often need outside professionals to take on C-suite leadership positions and provide interim leadership and crisis management. 

BDO Consulting Group, LLC professionals have deep experience in interim leadership assignments. We can help support your organizational and operational restructuring in roles such as Chief Restructuring Officer, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer, where our situational experience and strategic insight provide support to management and Boards of Directors that can help them quickly address operational challenges. From cashflow management and financial modeling to credit agreement negotiations and conflict resolution, our professionals bring valuable capabilities to the situation at hand. 

If your organization is facing crisis conditions, we can quickly help you stabilize business operations and then work with you to develop strategic plans that address immediate challenges and capitalize on your ongoing strengths. The ultimate goal? Helping you find new footing and regain confidence from lenders, creditors, investors — and customers.
