Turnaround and Transaction of the Year Awards



The Turnaround and Transaction of the Year Awards are the most prestigious awards in the industry. 

Recipients of this distinguished honor showcase what TMA members do best -- find value where it was lacking, maximize productivity and profitability in seemingly defunct businesses, and perhaps most importantly, save jobs. The Turnaround and Transaction Awards are chosen based on a rigorous peer-review process. The Awards Committee is carefully composed to represent the diversity of the TMA Membership. As the judges review all components of the entry, they look for well-defined, measurable outcomes. The selection process spans over four months and each committee member is fully dedicated to finding the best 2020 Turnaround and Transaction Award winners! Entries are due by Friday, February 28, at 11:59 p.m. PST.
