Turning Around the Economy: One Company at a Time; Cornerstone International Group Launches Turnaround Division
Based on the belief that the current economic trend can be reversed, one company at a time, Cornerstone International Group, one of the world’s 10 largest retained executive search organizations, has launched a turnaround division, headed by Richard S. Stevens.
Stevens is Chairman of Recreational Advisors, International and Chairman of the LA Express football team (WFL) and Chairman of the California State Fair and Expo for three years.
“Turnarounds are a key to tomorrow’s business success stories,” states Stevens. “You learn the hard way in these situations and, if you can complete the turnaround, you can translate those tough lessons into an action plan for success.”
“We have been helping client firms with turnaround management for years, but now we must help hundreds more companies that are in urgent need to be turned around quickly. We are very good at matching executives, including turnaround executives, with client firms, and if we can help enough companies in this way, we might actually see a positive effect on national and even world economic recovery,” adds William Guy, founder and CEO of Cornerstone.
Cornerstone International Group also advocates what it calls the American Redeployment Program with the mission of getting the 25 million or more unemployed people back to work 40 to 75 percent faster.
