Mr. Campbell has more than a decade of experience improving the operations and finances of healthy and distressed companies, including Chapter 11 and out-of-court restructurings. His experience spans the construction, telecommunications, manufacturing, energy, technology, education, consumer packaged goods, transportation, homebuilding, retail, gaming and financial services industries.
Most recently, Mr. Campbell worked with a $700 million construction contractor of large heavy civil, industrial, traditional power and renewal energy projects by assisting the company with evaluating its strategic alternatives.
Previously, Mr. Campbell worked with a manufacturing company with peak yearly revenue of more than $400 million. As the deputy Chief Restructuring Officer, he was instrumental in preparing the company for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and developing the long-term strategic plan, which included negotiating with key stakeholders, securing debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing, managing tight liquidity levels and developing communication plans. He led operational initiatives that consolidated facilities, identified and implemented the sale process of non-core assets totaling $12 million and shut down unprofitable divisions saving $8 million annually. He also reduced inventory levels by more than 30 percent, enhanced forecasting and reporting capabilities, implemented cost controls, improved working capital by $5 million and paid down $73 million in debt. A&M’s efforts led to the successful sale of the company to a financial buyer through a competitive §363 process that preserved all of the company’s jobs.
Mr. Campbell’s prior experience includes assisting a $200 million precast concrete manufacturer to develop and implement a long-term business plan to refinance the senior secured credit facility. Prior to that, he worked with a wind turbine manufacturing and servicing company to implement a cash forecasting model and develop a transformative business model that was later implemented by the new private equity owner.
