Don MacKenzie and Aurelio García-Miró: Conway MacKenzie Expands to Serve Latin America, Southeastern U.S., Opens Florida Office – ABL Advisor
Conway MacKenzie, Inc., is expanding with the addition of an office in Miami, Florida. The Miami office will serve as the center of the firm’s Latin American practice, and support businesses in the Southeastern United States.
Donald MacKenzie, founding partner and CEO, said, “Miami and Latin America are strategic growth markets for Conway MacKenzie. Our strategy is to work hand in hand with private equity, law firms, banks, and multinational businesses in Latin America to help mitigate risks and accelerate performance in their investment and credit portfolios. We see increased interest in investment and potential for economic and regulatory adjustments in Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Colombia. We want to help underperforming businesses in more volatile markets like Peru, Ecuador, Mexico, and even Venezuela.”
Aurelio Garcia-Miro, Shareholder and Senior Managing Director, will lead the Latin American practice to provide financial advisory support for corporate transformation processes in pre and post-acquisition, underperforming or distressed situations. Garcia-Miro is an expert in performance acceleration and financial restructuring advising companies in the United States, Europe and Latin America for nearly 20 years. Currently Garcia-Miro leads the Conway MacKenzie team advising the government of Puerto Rico on its $120 billion debt restructuring with treasury planning and optimization of financial disclosure.
The Miami team has deep knowledge of the Latin American region with particular focus in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru. The team brings vast expertise in corporate transformation, operational and debt restructuring, pre and post M&A transaction services, and FCPA compliance. “This specialized service offering coupled with our firm’s track record of success in oil and gas, power generation, automotive, steel and manufacturing, and real estate positions us as a tested and proven trusted advisor for companies in Latin America,” said Garcia-Miro, adding, “In addition, we are in advanced interactions with a number of Latin American governments to offer our unparalleled government and municipal advisory services.”
