Lead Left Interview – Deborah Hicks Midanek

This week we chat with Deborah Hicks Midanek, founder and managing partner of Solon Group. Solon is a restructuring and turnaround advisory firm.

The Lead Left: Deborah, tell us about Solon. First thing we noticed was you are a small firm.

Deborah Midanek: Having served as a principal of AlixPartners when it was still small and then built up Glass & Associates as its President before its 2005 sale to Huron, I have been determined that Solon would stay small. That gives us flexibility to pick and choose our assignments, even in slow markets for conventional restructuring advisors.
