Mackinac Promotes Three to Director

Mackinac Partners announced the promotion of George Henderson, Kyle Koger and Scott Dubois to the position of director.

Prior to Mackinac Partners, Henderson worked on the acquisitions team for South Street Partners, a real estate investment and operating company based in Charlotte, NC. Henderson has been active in Mackinac Partners’ restructuring and real estate practice since 2011. During his tenure at Mackinac Partners he has focused on the sales optimization of a private $700 million distressed real estate debt portfolio and has played key roles in numerous restructuring and buy-side due diligence engagements for large private equity firms.

Koger served as an investment banking and equity capital markets analyst at Jefferies & Company in New York prior to joining Mackinac Partners. Koger, who has a diverse background in finance, M&A, cash flow and debt management, and commercial and residential real estate portfolios, has played key roles on a number of Mackinac Partners turnaround and distressed debt projects, including the Chapter 11 liquidation of a large real estate developer. He has also been instrumental in providing strong forecasting, analytical and operational support to clients with portfolios in the hospitality, food and restaurant industries.

DuBois served as an investment banking analyst with Houlihan Lokey in Dallas prior to his tenure with Mackinac Partners. He served in key roles on many Mackinac Partners distressed debt, sell-side and buy-side engagements, has considerable experience in M&A transactions, bankruptcy proceedings, and debtor creditor turnaround projects. He has also provided strong analytical support, cash flow management and operations support to clients and equity partners across the food and restaurant, real estate, insurance and consumer products industries.

“We are very proud of Scott’s, Kyle’s and George’s strong contributions to our practice,” Mackinac Partners Managing Partner Jim Weissenborn said. “They have each provided outstanding client service, value and innovative solutions for our clients and partners. Their ability to perform at a high level often under the pressure of complex restructurings and deadlines merits this recognition. We extend our thanks to George, Kyle and Scott as well as their families, and wish them each the best in their continued advancement at Mackinac Partners.”
