For over 25 years Patrick Rettig has successfully saved companies from bankruptcy. He is passionate about helping the American entrepreneur – the companies $20 million and under, which are the backbone of this country. Rettig appears regularly on TV and radio shows including Fox Business’ Varney & Company.
Rettig says it’s all about the CEO. He enters the company and goes directly to the CEO. He knows that if the CEO can get back on track, then the rest of the company will get back on track as well.
The first step is to find the origin of failure. This might take awhile and often isn’t visible until the end. In order to do this Rettig takes the CEO out of the office and talks to him about his dreams and goals. When the inspiration is back, the rest becomes easier. Another key lesson Rettig teaches is dimensional jumping. It is important to focus on the now and not on the future. Taking care of current problems not only builds a secure foundation but also a strong future.
Rettig’s instincts are hyper-keen. His approach is direct, honest and pragmatic. He has a talent for identifying operational problems, structuring, implementing solutions and restructuring staff. As such, he ensures maximum productivity and efficient financial management. His experience includes companies of all ages: start-ups, turnarounds and restructured environments.
