Christopher Thompson

Change Strategist

What makes Chris a Change Strategist? His unrelenting commitment to providing clients with a range of needs from financial modeling, business valuations and turnaround strategies to improve their financial bottom-line. He gets the nuts and bolts of restructuring distressed companies and complex investment strategies. Because he’s managed them. And he understands the importance of financial oversight for profitable companies. Because he’s been in the trenches, plotting alternative strategies to liquidation, consolidation or sale of OEM manufacturers and managing portfolios of companies at commercial banks.  Chris’s leadership, as Treasurer of a $750 million University, was critical in creating a cash forecasting tool that resulted in a 400% increase in investment return on working capital and conceptualized creative, taxable-financing option to reduce operating budget shortfall by $26 million over five years.

“Winning is not a sometime thing, it is an all the time thing. You don’t do things right once in a while…you do them right all the time.”
