Turnaround Business Consultant

American Management Services New York, NY
  • Expired: October 27, 2020. Applications are no longer accepted.



Our Consulting Firm is looking for CEOs!

What Is Chief Executive Officer (CEO)? According to a recent article on Investopedia, A chief executive officer (CEO) is "the highest-ranking executive in a company, whose primary responsibilities include making major corporate decisions, managing the overall operations and resources of a company, acting as the main point of communication between the board of directors (the board) and corporate operations and being the public face of the company.


In our pursuit of providing unparalleled and excellent performance in our Management Consulting Group, American Management Services, Inc. is looking for individuals that meet the above definition for the betterment of our clients. Because we deal strictly with small privately held businesses, acting in the capacity of CEO means that you are leading, training, and instructing our clients, which also happen to be the owners of the business. The Senior Consultants assigned to each project are also responsible for ensuring that any and all recommendations are fully implemented, meaning that we are producing real and tangible results for our clients. Our consultants have to lead from the front!


With all due respect, we are not looking for those who simply want to be Accountants, Operations Managers, Controllers / CFOs, Sales Managers, General Managers or any other position that doesn't occupy the top spot on a company's organization chart. While many of these skills and experiences fit well with the work we do, the main skill we are looking for are outlined in the first paragraph: If you are not ready to act as our client's interim CEO, take complete control of the clients and their business, then this is probably not the opportunity for you.


If you feel that you are ready to take the challenge head on, then continue to read on


Our consultants often find themselves in distressed client situations: Insolvency, complacency, diminishing sales, lack of accountability, poor communication and any other situation imaginable that impairs the client's ability to generate profitability and cash flows. Roughly two-thirds of our clients are in significant financial distress, and have no idea on how to turn their business around. That is where American Management Services, Inc. comes in.


Our consultants are not afraid to take the challenge head on. Our consultants get in front of the angry vendors, customers, bankers and work tirelessly and relentlessly to solve these problems on behalf of the clients. Our consultants are not afraid to address the internal issues that plague our clients. We aggressively confront each and every business problem with honest and open dialog (no matter how painful the truth may be), and we pride ourselves on not only on making the recommendations necessary to fix the business, but ensuring those recommendations are implemented and lead to real and tangible results in the form of improved profitability and cash flows, increased sales, ease of operations, and overall quality of life for ownership.


Our Ideal candidates must have...
Strong financial, operational and inter-personal skills
20+ years of solid business experience as a business owner, Chief Financial Officer, Controller or Senior Executive of a small to mid-size business.

Prior experience in crisis management, turn-arounds, and a proven track record of financial controls is required.



Seasoned business professionals earn from $125,000 to $150,000+ per year. In addition to the opportunity to earn substantial income, you can also participate in our health, life, vision, dental insurance, and 401(k) Plan.
