Cameron is an experienced investor, board member, and C-suite strategic partner who has led 10+ private equity investments worth $2+ billion and managed a $1+ billion credit portfolio. He serves on six boards and works closely with CEOs, CFOs, and other executives to drive growth and solve complex strategic and financial issues for companies in the building products, distribution, manufacturing, transportation, and other sectors.
Led successful turnarounds at an underperforming and varied inherited portfolio. I worked closely with executives of six companies as an active board member, negotiated additional direct and bolt-on investments, evaluated new platform investments, and monetized existing investments.
Managed through a liquidity crisis at a building products company by optimizing cash flow and amending bank covenants. I worked with the CEO and CFO to lead turnaround and growth efforts by crafting new strategies to maximize margins through pricing and sales strategy changes, developing sophisticated hedging strategies, and expanding into adjacent markets. I directed the active sales process with significant value creation (EBITDA increased 5x) during 21 months of leadership.
Identified a series of strategic steps to transform a stagnant medical device distribution company, including upgrading management, redesigning the organizational structure and incentives, identifying new growth opportunities, eliminating inefficiencies, and extending loan maturity dates. I directed the active sales process with significant value creation (EBITDA increased 6x) during 18 months of leadership.
Managed $1 billion+ in a performing and distressed credit book across sectors while dealing with rapidly changing end markets and insolvencies; significantly outperformed investment benchmarks.
Led a group of creditors to protect investments in an auto parts manufacturer that had comingled assets, operations, and debts with a sister company in Chapter 11; achieved full recovery for first and second liens.
Sourced and structured new deals and managed the existing portfolio for this power-focused PE firm.
Led successful acquisition and construction of a 50 MW wind facility. I originated the investment and drove a complex, multi-party deal through the entire process from due diligence and financial modeling to purchase agreements, contract negotiations, and financing. I negotiated construction at a price that was ~50% below standard costs, generating a strong ROI.
Acquired a DOE-backed energy storage firm in Chapter 11 and structured a low-investment, high-return potential deal at a time of high-profile business failures in the alternative energy sector. I identified the opportunity, led due diligence, and renegotiated DOE loan terms to optimize the investment. We evaluated and constructed a second storage facility with significant funding from a DOE grant.
Acquired, managed, and expanded a natural gas-fired plant.
Played a key role in establishing new processes for the firm, including those for hiring and managing firm resources, to maximize consistency and scalability.
