AEG Partners, a restructuring, advisory and turnaround management firm, announced the expansion of its restructuring practice and CFO capabilities with the recent addition of David Riesmeyer as managing director. In addition to restructuring services, David will focus on providing CFO advisory services for private equity and privately held companies. He will be based in Chicago.

Riesmeyer has over 30 years of experience working with a wide range of companies as both a corporate executive and strategic advisor. He has worked extensively with both healthy and stressed businesses on financial and operational matters within private equity, family owned and publicly held environments. With deep experience as a CFO, his expertise ranges across the corporate spectrum, where he has successfully managed debt and equity financings, acquisitions and related integration, divestitures, plant consolidations, cost reduction programs, accounting controls (including SOX implementation), information systems (including ERP implementation) and legal dispute resolution. In addition, his leadership roles have included managing supply chain, human resources and sales. Reismeyer has significant, hands-on experience in manufacturing and sales in China, Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.

David has worked in a wide range of corporate situations, including prior restructuring work with AEG Partners, managing distressed companies through bankruptcy and eventual sale to maximize estate recoveries. He has re-joined after a series of increasingly responsible corporate leadership roles, including as EVP and CFO of Panasonic Lighting Americas, CFO of Chicago Metallic, EVP and CFO of Metalforming Technologies, and VP and treasurer of Transportation Technologies.

“We are extremely pleased Dave has chosen to join AEG,” said Craig Dean, managing principal. “He brings a practical, hands-on approach to both financial and operating challenges. Our clients have also shown increased interest in tapping into qualified CFO expertise, and Dave will significantly add to our ability to fulfill that need.”
