Alvarez & Marsal, European Corporate Solutions’

Senior Associate

Winning in rapidly changing markets requires a radically different way of thinking about strategy and execution that will deliver a step change in agility. Our restructuring heritage and depth of experience as business leaders and operators lie at the core of our DNA, and have instilled in us a natural ability to work with clients to understand and solve their most urgent and complex problems. Our senior leaders bring deep insight into the opportunities and challenges faced by businesses and into practical approaches that work versus theoretical approaches that don’t. We combine this extensive business experience with a fact-based approach to get to the heart of the issues quickly and then take a hands-on, operational approach to execution.
