His active involvement in this field began in 1990, working as a consultant for Policano & Manzo (1990-1997) and later for Capstone Advisory Group (2009-2010), representing both debtors and creditors. Additionally, his roles as a banking principal at Deutsche Bank/Bankers Trust from 1997-2009 and again from 2011-2022, including serving as the Americas Head of Workout and Recovery Management from 2015-2022, provided him with unparalleled insights and experience.
