Macleay Partners is a Turnaround and Business Advisory firm, focused on providing timely advise to businesses facing financial challenges. Our key goal is business continuity. We help companies deal with challenges early and effectively, to ensure businesses continue to operate and deliver benefits to owners, employees and other stakeholders.
Macleay Partners was established by Justin Ward, an experienced accountant, auditor and turnaround professional. Justin has worked for a number of leading firms, including Ernst & Young and de Vries Tayeh.
Justin has extensive experience in helping small to medium-sized businesses manage significant business issues, which can threaten the very existence of a business. He has also undertaken extensive pre-insolvency work, managed companies that are subject to external administrations and provide assistance with the raising of debt and equity.
During his career, Justin has witnessed firsthand what happens when businesses fail to respond to major challenges. When companies hit a crisis, stress levels run high and there may only be few options at an owner’s disposal. Instead, Justin intervenes early; he applies proven, technology-savvy solutions that improve processes and help build a better business.
The Macleay Partners difference
Macleay Partners offers our clients the following benefits.
We are independent
Macleay Partners is a specialist turnaround firm that is not affiliated with any insolvency practice. This means we are wholly focused on helping our clients achieve business continuity.
We are agile and nimble
We pride ourselves on being small and delivering a personalised service. During each engagement, you’ll be working directly with Justin with no layers of administration in between. We also use cutting-edge cloud-based accounting software, so we can efficiently address business issues.
We apply a best-of-breed approach
Business turnaround is a highly-specialised area. To ensure we deliver the best outcomes for every business, we harness the experience of leading professionals in fields such as accounting, insolvency and the law. We assemble top-quality teams to craft cost-effective solutions.
We offer targeted solutions
At Macleay Partners, we focus on the areas of a business where we can deliver the greatest results. We don’t overreach, but provide targeted, short-term assistance.
We work collaboratively with your existing advisers
Most businesses have an experienced set of advisers. We work closely with these advisers to develop long-term processes and solutions that can be maintained once the engagement has concluded.
We’ve had some great success so far. You can check out this case study to see how we’ve used cutting-edge technology to help a business in trouble. We’ve also got a blog where you can find useful articles on issues like cash-flow management and business valuations.
