Mike Bergthold, CFE

Mike Bergthold, a highly-experienced turnaround executive, reduces complex problems into actionable plans to drive immediate and measurable positive results. He leverages over 30 years of experience advising public and private companies on strategy, finance and accounting to serve as CRO, financial advisor, interim executive, or in a strategic board role for companies in financial distress or in transition.

In completing successful turnarounds, Mike manages all aspects of designing and implementing restructuring strategies, leads capital raises, and negotiates with lenders and investors. He leads clients through complex legal processes in formal and informal reorganizations. By achieving unity among disparate creditor and investor groups, clients become renewed, recapitalized, and viable business enterprises.

As an interim CEO, CFO, president or director of companies in transition, Mike skillfully guides management teams and stakeholders through strategic planning; budgeting and forecasting; complex negotiations; and recapitalizations.

Mike was a licensed CPA in California and Arizona for 25 years. Prior to joining Stapleton Group, he held positions at EY and Andersen and was a senior executive at accounting and IT outsourcing firms. Mike’s industry experience includes agriculture, diagnostic laboratory, manufacturing, professional services, real estate, transportation and IT services.
