Business Turnarounds (or turn arounds) are perhaps the most complicated and demanding types of Interim Management and the success of the assignment largely determines the destiny and existance of the business involved.

Pennine Trent Limited has participated in many successful Business Turnaround projects allowing us to establish ourselves as Business Turnaround specialists in the UK. Turnaround Management consulting usually involves leading the business back to financial stability in difficult times whilst placating numerous stakeholders of the enterprise.

The Turnaround Manager is able to provide strong leadership and make unpopular decisions with corporate survival and financial recovery being the ultimate goal.
