We See Opportunities
We are problem solvers. We provide you with a clear, concise, and objective analysis of your company’s or client’s challenges. We are action-oriented and create innovative plans to be implemented quickly and cost-effectively. At the end of the day, we take great pride in the fact that the financial benefit we provide far exceeds the cost of our services.
Our professionals possess the necessary skills and experience to independently take control of any situation and see it through to completion. Our assignments have included organizational and financial restructuring, profit performance improvement plans, due diligence, divestitures, and outright liquidations.
We bring a new perspective to situations, and possess the critical insight needed to uncover and understand the basis of the real business problems. We also have relationships with turnaround equity funds, which can provide the desperately needed cash infusion that often means the difference between surviving a difficult time and going out of business.
Aurora was founded in Atlanta in 2000 by a group of Certified Turnaround Professionals (CTP) who merged their practices and expertise to create a more diversified practice. Our impressive growth over the past 17 years led to the addition of offices in Charlotte, Chicago and Cleveland. Each office is staffed with senior-level, seasoned executives and consultants with the knowledge, skills, vision, and integrity to make immediate and positive contributions to each client engagement. Since our founding we have completed over 250 successful engagements focusing on complex business issues, turnaround, Chapter 11, and federal receivership in both private and public companies, with a focus on middle market organizations.

Fees and Compensation
We work under the terms of an engagement letter detailing the scope of our work as agreed upon with each client. Fees are typically invoiced on an hourly rate basis with rates established by the level of experience of our professionals assigned to the engagement.
Working with a client means more to us than a simple business transaction. We understand the emotion and pressure placed on leadership in stressful business environments. Our proven process ensures that we will work diligently with the client’s management team to find solutions that benefit all stakeholders.
A Culture of Empathy
We bring honesty and integrity to every aspect of crisis management and turnaround planning. We deliver financial benefits that far exceed our fees, and we do it with a personal touch. Many of our talented team members have owned or operated a business themselves, giving us relatable executive-level expertise. This crucial understanding of a company’s challenges guides a unique, objective, and independent perspective that results in a bridge between companies searching for solutions and their lenders, shareholders, and other interested parties.
We understand the emotions present in stressful business environments, and take this ideology into every aspect of our organizational process. We won’t leave until the assignment is complete, and will assist with any challenges that arise during this transitional and potentially confusing time.
We understand that time is of the essence. As such, we identify, strategize, and address the challenge at hand in an efficient manner. Our objective is to complete the assignment in a resourceful way, making the client’s financial stability a top priority.
We optimize the complementary skills brought by all levels of the client’s management team to work together to find resolutions. Our senior level staff members and our network of industry partners create a cohesive team to effectively find solutions to any given situation.
We are driven to achieve client goals and objectives. With over 200+ successful engagements in varied industries, we can assess the situation and develop the most impactful results available, bringing immediate value to every engagement.
