See my Google+ profile and my Linkedin Profile for recommendations and further information. Keith has been nominated as Turnaround Practitioner of the Year 2014 at the National Insolvency and Rescue Awards.
More than 6,000 people have contacted KSA Group since Keith launched this unique website in 2000 and over 500 companies have now been directly assisted by the author over the last 15 years with assignments ranging from large multi-national projects to small manufacturing companies, to simple advice over the phone.
For example, Keith ran a £500m sales company in an administration plus CVA rescue in 2004 and that company (now much smaller) survives with sales over £100m or so. Keith has worked with much smaller concerns from £300k sales upwards and he is currently leading the turnaround of a £20m logistics firm, (CVA).
Keith started his career as a retailer and experienced the savage recession of the 1990’s first hand. This was before the banks had a planned approach to dealing with SME’s failure. Close struggling businesses first; ask questions later was the response then. Of course, this was driven by insolvency practitioners who wanted big fees.
So he learned a lot in a short time and thought “how can we help struggling businesses?”
He joined a specialist turnaround firm in London in 1994 and has helped set up two venture capital companies since, specialising in the distressed / turnaround sector. Since then he has focused on driving the delivery of free information to distressed business people and promoting the use of CVAs, innovative administrations and informal turnarounds.
Keith is a former director of the UK Turnaround Management Association and an associate of the Turnaround Finance Group. He is also the director of Cheswick Capital
There isn’t much he hasn’t seen, he is an entrepreneur and vastly experienced in turning around companies. Talk to Keith directly if you want.
