Weil Joins Getzler Henrich as Managing Director

November 09, 2012, 08:44 AM

Getzler Henrich & Associates appointed Bert Weil, a 20+ year industry veteran, as a managing director in the firm.  Weil will be responsible for financial and business analysis, business and restructuring plan development and execution, and process improvement to reposition clients for future growth and profitability. He officially joined the firm October 29, 2012 and will be based in the New York headquarters.

“Bert’s knowledge as a seasoned restructuring professional, both inside and outside of bankruptcy is widely respected,” commented co-chairman Bill Henrich.  In his two decades of experience as financial advisor, turnaround professional, crisis manager, or senior-level interim executive, Weil has advised over 100 entities--public, private and not-for-profit.

Co-chairman Joel Getzler notes, “Bert’s experience helping businesses with balance-sheet restructurings, operational and profit improvement programs, liquidations, organizational restructurings, debt replacements and sell-side transactions is a great fit with Getzler Henrich.”  His industry experience includes light and heavy manufacturing, imported- and domestic-product merchandising and distribution, food processing, apparel and textile, printing, medical imaging, non-profit, and retail.

Prior to joining the restructuring community, Weil learned first-hand the challenges of managing a struggling business while serving as the top financial officer of Holmes Protection Group, a public company with 1,000 employees.  Before Holmes, he managed the NYC-based corporate foreign exchange and derivatives desk for ABN Bank (now ABN-AMRO), and held derivative product business-development roles at Drexel Burnham Lambert and Citibank.  He also held positions at AIG and Ernst & Young.

Weil is a board member of the Turnaround Management Association’s New York chapter and a member of the Association for Corporate Growth.
