BM&T’s David Bryan wins TMA Global Chair’s Award

David Bryan, CEO of turnaround and restructuring boutique BM&T, has received the 2018 TMA Global Chair’s Award at the annual conference in Colorado Springs.

Mr Bryan received the award for his work with TMA Europe and the industry accreditation organisation EACTP, as well as his contribution to turning BM&T into one of Europe’s leading turnaround management firms.

TMA Global Chair Milley Chow said: “If anyone embodies the spirit of the Chair’s Award it is David Bryan.

“David has been a long-time and tireless advocate for TMA Global in Europe and is one of our biggest supporters. David has never lost his passion for TMA.

“David has been Finance Director of TMA Europe since it was established in 2011 and also serves on the board of the TMA UK chapter.

“He was also one of the first volunteers with EACTP, the first European professional body dedicated to promoting the accreditation of Turnaround Management professionals across Europe.”

Accepting the award, Mr Bryan said: “I am honoured to receive this award and it has been a great pleasure to work with TMA for so many years.

“I am particularly proud of what we have achieved in Europe. The UK chapter is thriving and TMA Europe now runs three pan-European events every year.

“In my own business we founded a network in Europe for cross-border work several years ago called European Restructuring Solutions. All our European partner firms were known to us through TMA and there are several past chapter presidents and a current president among those firms.

“We also have a strong relationship with Conway MacKenzie in the US. None of that could have happened without TMA.

“I would also like to thank all the other volunteers and support staff in Europe without whom we would never have achieved what we have.”

TMA established the Chair’s Award in 2001 to recognise individuals who have displayed outstanding leadership by fostering the growth and stature of the association and the corporate renewal industry, as well as having distinguished themselves as prominent professionals in their specific areas of practice.

BM&T and its predecessor Glass & Associates have been engaged in transatlantic and European cross-border restructuring since 1997.

BM&T is a founding member of European Restructuring Solutions, a network of firms in the five major economies of Europe. It is also the European associate of leading US restructuring firm Conway Mackenzie.

In 2013 and 2015 BM&T received TMA Europe’s Turnaround of the Year Award.
