Jerry Thompson joined MACCO Restructuring Group as a managing director based in Houston. Thompson’s business experience incorporates the ability to evaluate structured finance transactions, notably in upstream exploration, production and oil field service companies, from a practical standpoint. Thompson has led multi-disciplined teams through due diligence, structuring and execution of more than $2 billion in oil and gas structured debt and equity transactions, and he has gained restructuring expertise while working with a variety of public and private industries. Thompson has conducted balance sheet and operational restructuring efforts that successfully reorganized distressed investments.

“The economic fallout from industries in distress require[s] us to think outside the box in identifying talented professionals with diverse skill sets and keen analytical perspective, to address and find solutions for businesses in crisis across a broad industrial and financial spectrum,” Drew McManigle, founder and managing director of MACCO Restructuring Group, said. “With this in mind, I am pleased to announce our newest MACCO restructuring expert.”

Prior to MACCO, Thompson was a managing director at an Australian merchant bank for 14 years, where he focused on both debt and equity investments in the energy sector. A professional engineer by training, he began his career in mechanical reliability and project engineering roles within the chemical and refining industries.

“I’m very proud to say, since our launch in July 2019, that MACCO has variously served as CRO, financial advisor, Chapter 11 plan trustee, independent director or as an expert witness, across 16 engagements, including Chapter 11 cases such as Pioneer Energy Services, Corp., Watson Valve Services, Inc. and Marshall Broadcasting Group, Inc., working collaboratively with law firms from Houston, Dallas and across the country from Los Angeles to New York,” McManigle said. “At MACCO, we continue to grow our team of ‘first responders’ to businesses in financial and operational distress. Our talented group of professionals act quickly, advise wisely and execute precisely to ‘put out the fire and protect the stakeholders from getting burned.’”
