CHICAGO, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Saving jobs, regaining profitability, avoiding liquidation and thriving after bankruptcy were among the narratives submitted by nominees of the Chicago/Midwest Chapter of the Turnaround Management Association’s (Chicago/Midwest TMA) annual awards. The program recognizes members for their outstanding achievements in the corporate renewal profession.
Winners in the following categories were selected: Large Turnaround of the Year – Proskauer Rose LLP and Gas City, Ltd.; Large Turnaround of the Year – Huron Consulting Group Inc. and JHT Holdings, Inc.; Small Turnaround of the Year – Lake Pointe Partners, LLC and Rotonics Manufacturing, Inc.; and Small Transaction of the Year – Mesirow Financial Consulting, LLC, Ungaretti & Harris and Fairview Ministries, Inc..
Turnaround of the Year honors the successful turnaround of a company and Transaction of the Year awards are presented to distressed financial transactions that, if not executed, would have most likely resulted in the failure of a business and lower recoveries to creditors. All winners will be honored at the Chicago/Midwest TMA Executive Speakers Forum on November 28, 2012.
Nominations are judged on a combination of characteristics of the issues involved, the actions taken by the corporate renewal/turnaround professionals, creativity in crafting solutions, overall outcome and results.
TMA Chicago/Midwest Chapter President Harold Israel congratulates each of the award winners on achieving extraordinary results in a very challenging business environment. The award presentation will take place prior to dinner at the Chicago/Midwest TMA’s Executive Speaker Forum in Chicago, at which the Honorable Henry M.
