MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - February 23, 2009) - ACM Capital Partners, a national investment and advisory firm specializing in assisting middle market companies in transition or distress, today announced that Brian L. Davies, Jr., has joined the company as Managing Partner, Boston. Davies will support ACM's national expansion efforts as well as launch ACM's New England practice.

Davies joins ACM from HIG Capital, where he served as an Operating Partner with a focus on management buyouts and recapitalizations of middle market companies. Prior to HIG Capital, Davies served as a Managing Director and Co-Head of Mesirow Financial's New England practice.

"Brian brings to ACM exceptional experience based on a sterling industry reputation and we welcome him to our dynamic team," said ACM Capital Partners Founder and Managing Partner James F. Martin. "We look forward to his many contributions on the senior management team as we ramp up our national expansion efforts."

Regarded highly within the turnaround business, Davies brings more than 14 years of frontline experience, working extensively in the fields of corporate recovery, business reorganization and interim management services. He has provided financial advisory services to lenders, debtors, creditors' committees, trustees and equity holders in bankruptcy matters and out-of-court restructurings.

Davies also has provided assistance to under-performing businesses, potential acquirers of distressed assets/entities, and advised clients on general business issues. He has advised and worked with financially-distressed companies to develop cost containment and asset rationalization plans, improve liquidity, re-engineer financial and other back-office functions, and enhance cash flow.

His industry experience includes retail, manufacturing, distribution, automotive, environmental testing laboratories, aviation, real estate, Food/Beverage and healthcare. Davies holds a Master of Science in Finance from Bentley College McCallum Graduate School of Business and a Bachelor of Science in Finance from Bentley College, Waltham, Mass. He is a Certified Insolvency and Restructuring Advisor.

"ACM's mission of aligning stakeholder interests to maximize the value of companies in distress is not only a unique and proven approach, but showcases the innovation that differentiates ACM from the rest of the field," Davies said. "I am pleased to join Jim Martin and his savvy team in growing ACM into a national leader in the turnaround business."

ACM's unique approach focuses on injecting various forms of capital (including financial, intellectual and operational) directly into its client companies. Alongside capital infusion, ACM places a hands-on, seasoned member of each one of its three discipline teams (Executive, Financial and Operational) into each client engagement.
