Turnaround Specialist says his 'product is me' Specialist: John M. Collard's job, which he has done around the world, is to turn around distressed companies, but Network Technologies Group, Inc. presented a different challenge. When Collard arrived at NTG, an empty desk and chair were all that filled his office. There was no computer. The file drawers were empty. The walls were bare. "There was nothing here," Collard recalled. A turnaround specialist whose job is to rescue troubled companies, Collard had been hired by the investors and the board to figure out what was going on inside, to stabilize the company, and to find and hire his replacement. This time was different.
