Unlike Restructuring Firms: A New Approach to Performance Improvement
“At Accordion, we specifically work with private equity sponsors at portfolio companies in the office of the CFO. So our advantage in the Performance Improvement space is that we approach things from a private equity situation, not necessarily a bankruptcy or restructuring perspective.” – Rishi Jain, Managing Director & Head of Western Region

A turning cycle. A growing practice.
As the cycle turns, and credit issues and problems in the macro environment arise, we foresee an influx of performance improvement situations.
