Matthew Henry is a Senior Director with Alvarez & Marsal in Los Angeles.

As part of the Corporate Restructuring team at Alvarez & Marsal, Mr. Henry's focus spans multiple industries, including retail, wholesale, manufacturing, financial services and residential and commercial real estate. 

Mr. Henry was recently engaged by Target Canada (subsidiary of NYSE: TGT) to facilitate the operational and financial aspects of the closure of the 133 store fleet across Canada.  He advised on the successful sale through Chapter 11 of Furniture Brands International (NYSE: FBN), the third largest manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of household furniture in the U.S. that owned brands such as Thomasville, Lane and Broyhill, as well as a suite of designer brands.  While at FBN, Mr. Henry was responsible for near-term cash management, long term financial planning, as well as cost reduction opportunities.

Mr. Henry also advised on the operational turnaround of Nebraska Book Company, one of the largest textbook retailer and wholesalers in the U.S., with over 200 operated retail locations and a supplier to over 2,500 stores. In addition to liquidity management and debt capacity planning, Mr. Henry’s efforts there culminated in a significant monetization of working capital as well as a new methodology to monitor and react to competitor pricing.  Mr. Henry also led a team in the stabilization and profitability improvement of a recently challenged business segment.

Other notable engagements include: an advisory role to Coldwater Creek (NAS: CWTR), a $600 million apparel retailer; the pre-arranged Chapter 11 of William Lyon Homes that resulted in a significant deleveraging and equity infusion, positioning the Company for a later successful IPO (NYSE: WLH); the sale through Chapter 11 of Grubb & Ellis (NYSE: GBE); and the out-of-court restructuring of one of the largest private homebuilders in the U.S.

Prior to joining A&M, Mr. Henry was an associate at a middle-market investment bank, where he provided due diligence and valuation support on acquisitions made by buy-side clients, including large corporate acquirers, private equity groups and public conglomerates.  Key responsibilities included assessing the viability of target forecasts, providing guidance on valuation for price negotiations and identifying strategic follow-on opportunities.

Mr. Henry earned a Master’s in Business Administration from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University and a Bachelor’s of Science in Finance from the University of Nevada, where he was a Presidential Scholar and graduated With Distinction.
