Getzler Henrich Names McMahon Managing Director of Retail Turnaround and Restructuring Practice

September 20, 2022, 07:50 AM

Glenn McMahon has joined Getzler Henrich & Associates as a Managing Director of the firm’s Retail Turnaround and Restructuring Practice.

With his over 30 years of executive experience leading the transformation and growth of storied brands such as St John Knits, Dolce & Gabbana, Donna Karan, Giorgio Armani and  operational turnarounds of numerous other brands, McMahon is the newest senior leader of Getzler Henrich’s growing Retail and Turnaround and Restructuring Practice. He joins Managing Directors Mark Samson and Michael Appel, who was named by the firm earlier this year to lead the Retail Practice.

In announcing his joining Getzler Henrich, Michael Appel said, "We are pleased to welcome Glenn to Getzler Henrich. He brings impressive operational turnaround and advisory experience to the firm, and we look forward to collaborating with him as we continue to expand our  team and  range of services in the consumer retail space.”

As CEO  of the  iconic American luxury brand St. John Knits from 2007-2013, McMahon led  the successful transformation and turnaround of the company by  creating and expanding  product, repositioning the brand and marketing to appeal to new and younger customers; restructuring the operations; saving operating expenses; improving margins through sourcing and SKU rationalization and optimizing the retail fleet of 42 stores by  introducing a new store concept and design and right sizing and renegotiated leases. These actions resulted in a significant increase in annual revenue. Upon completing the turnaround of the business, he led the sale of the company to Fosun, now Lanvin Fashion Group. 

On Joining Getzler Henrich, Glenn McMahon said, “Since leading the successful transformation and eventual sale of St. John Knits, I saw a dramatic shift in retail, and I wanted to have the ability and flexibility to work across the variety of consumer and retail  brands in all formats where I could share my skills and experiences. I began with my own successful consultancy, but I am excited now to combine forces with the retail team at Getzler Henrich to offer an even wider array of services to a larger universe of companies and brands.”  

After leading St John Knits, McMahon established a performance and profit improvement advisory firm where Private Equity firms engaged him to transform and restage portfolio companies.

McMahon has a BA from the American University (Washington, DC)
