ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Nov. 18, 2013 - PRLog -- Strategic Management Partners, Inc.: turnaround managers ready to run troubled companies, recover assets from investments gone bad, advise boards of directors and investors on company viability in distressed situations.  We provide strong interim and operational leadership, strategic planning, financial, defense conversion, sales and marketing acumen developed building organizations in large and small companies, including President of public & private middle-market companies providing solutions to Commercial, Federal, International markets.

When we enter an interim CEO engagement we have three goals to accomplish: 1) Gain control of a dire situation, stabilize work environment, establish breakeven, and jump-start the company;  2) Establish a viable plan, rebuild an enduring management team to implement that plan; and  3) Hire our replacement.  We believe true company value comes from a stable competent cohesive team of people resources committed to company growth, profitability and prosperity.  We do not build-up the number of consultants on engagements because when they leave all of the value leaves with them.  Instead, we utilize the client’s employees and take them to the next level.  We build value into the company for the investors and all stakeholders.

John M. Collard, Chairman, Strategic Management Partners, Inc., Past Chairman, Turnaround Management Association, and Chairman, Association of Interim Executives, said “We are proud of the work that we have done and our many success stories. Turnarounds are like re-beginnings – they must build teams, differentiate and sell products and services, raise capital, and grow.” Collard continued. “I have witnessed many changes in the business of turning around troubled companies in 25 years. Today, while Interim CEO engagements are important, there is a trend toward adding advisors in the role of outside directors at the company, or recovery fund experts in private equity fund management. The key is to recognize that there is trouble and bring is leadership who can make a difference.”
