Huron Consulting Adds European Restructuring, Turnaround Expert

Huron Consulting Group, a provider of business consulting services, announced that John Mansell has rejoined the company as a managing director in the Financial Consulting segment focused on European cross-border restructuring and operational turnaround.

“In this tenuous economy, we are seeing an increased demand for our restructuring and turnaround services. In Europe specifically, many of our clients are struggling to refinance debt because there is a restriction on access to capital,” said John DiDonato, managing director and Financial Consulting segment leader, Huron Consulting Group. “We are pleased to welcome John back to Huron. He will work with our existing Restructuring and Turnaround team to help serve our global clients.”

Mansell has more than 20 years of experience in restructuring and turnaround including reorganization, crisis management, and operational improvements. His expertise spans multiple industries including manufacturing, distribution, engineering and logistics. Mansell has worked across the European Union with automotive, material handling, printing, biotech and transportation clients helping them with restructuring and turnarounds.

Mansell rejoins Huron from Bryan, Mansell & Tilley LLP (BM&T), a London-based restructuring and turnaround practice where he served as a partner. At Huron, he will be based in the company’s London office and will provide international support for large multinational clients.

Huron provides services to a wide variety of both financially sound and distressed organizations, including healthcare organizations, Fortune 500 companies, leading academic institutions, medium-sized businesses and the law firms that represent these various organizations.
