Yesterday Deloitte named Sheila T. Smith as the restructuring services leader for the Americas region. Smith, currently the co-leader of Deloitte FAS Corporate Restructuring Group in the U.S., now has expanded responsibilities, according to their press.
Smith, who was the first ever New York Institute of Credit (NYIC) Executive Woman of the Year, has received any number of industry awards for her management skills. About yesterday's announcement, Smith had this to offer:
“Our clients realize that huge cross-border opportunities exist in South America, but those opportunities can also present distinct and unexpected challenges. We help our clients navigate those challenges to first avoid and then correct the critical issues they face. Our global depth and breadth of technical and industry experience allow us to bring the right resource to bear on a troubled company situation, tailored to the specific marketplace nuances, legal and regulatory frameworks where the company resides."
A Boston resident, Smith earned her bachelor's and her master's degrees from the State University of New York at Buffalo. She also holds an MBA from Boston University. Readers interested in more information on the Deloitte news can read the original release here.
