O'Keefe Earns 2014 Turnaround of the Year Award


BLOOMFIELD HILLS — O’Keefe, a national firm providing transactional financial consulting to middle market companies, with offices in Bloomfield Hills and Grand Rapids, has been honored with the prestigious 2014 Not for Profit Turnaround of the Year Award by the Turnaround Management Association.

O’Keefe’s client was a nonprofit organization and recognized leader in the field of special education, providing assistance to students and adults with severe disabilities, including autism. 

O’Keefe’s turnaround expertise saved more than 450 jobs and made it possible for the organization to continue services for nearly 500 students and adults attending the program. Once the restructuring was complete, O’Keefe was able to refinance the organization’s complex credit structure and the organization has a financial road map to complement its mission. 

Since 1993, TMA has honored excellence through its annual awards program, which recognizes the most successful turnarounds and impactful transactions. This year’s winners saved countless jobs and made a significant economic impact, both locally and globally.

The winners will be honored during a special awards ceremony at The TMA Annual meeting Sept. 29 – Oct. 1 at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto, Ontario.

Nationally, O’Keefe also has offices in Atlanta and Chicago.
