CTTMA Names New President, Officers

Connecticut Turnaround Management Association (CTTMA) elected a new president, chairman, corporate secretary, two new vice presidents, and a new director.

The new president is David Weinstein, an SVP of Ares Management, succeeding Phillip G. Kane, Jr, a VP at Hartford-based U.S. Bank and a resident of Vernon, CT, who becomes chairman. Weinstein, a Weston resident, had previously been the organization’s VP for programing.

CTTMA’s new officers include Joshua Cohen, a partner in Hartford-based Day Pitney, LLP, who succeeds Weinstein as VP of programs. William McAndrew, an SVP at Citibank and a Milford resident, is the new VP for membership, and Greg Pignataro, a VP at People’s United Business Capital, is the new corporate secretary. Roy Filkoff, a partner in Altman & Company continues as treasurer.

The organization added a new director, Kristen Bandura, an associate at Hartford-based Robinson & Cole, to its 18-person board. She will be responsible for CTTMA’s Women’s NOW Committee.

Terms of office for the president and chairman are two years. The other new officers also serve for two-year terms. The board position is a three-year term. This ensures continuity and consistency as the chapter continues to grow and develop more and more insightful programming.

“I am excited and honored to be the next President of CTTMA,” Weinstein said. “With the support of the board and under the leadership of Phil Kane, our organization has regained its financial footing, met its membership goals expanded its programming, and positioned itself as focused not only on distressed investing but also corporate renewal. I look forward to continuing the momentum and looking for new and exciting ways to attract new members and provide even greater member benefits and services.”
