“We are extremely honored and proud to receive this prestigious recognition,” said John M. Collard, Chief Executive Officer of Strategic Management Partners, Inc. “It is an honor to play an active role in TMA’s leadership, influence growth, and support the corporate renewal profession and the Certified Turnaround Professional Program. We are very proud of TMA’s accomplishments, and that we could be a catalyst to change.”
“We have three goals when we enter an interim CEO engagement: 1) Gain control of a dire situation, stabilize work environment 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 when possible and take them to the next level. We build value into the company for the employees, investors and all stakeholders.”
