The Institute for Turnaround, whose members were recently described by Channel 4 Chairman Luke Johnson as, “corporate firefighters…unsentimental yet almost heroic…” has appointed judges from London Business School and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) to assess the year’s best turnaround results. Several high-profile organisations have submitted applications for this year’s turnaround Oscars, the longest established and best known in the sector.

Categories include public sector, SME and international turnaround. The accreditation process for Institute for Turnaround individual members has a reputation for being rigorous and the scrutiny applied to turnaround cases will be no less intense. Judges from London Business School and the CBI will join seasoned turnaround experts to assess the year’s top performing applicants.

A highlight of the year will be the Chairman’s Special Award, to be given this year by Philip Davidson, KPMG’s UK restructuring advisory group head, who has just been appointed chairman at the Institute for Turnaround. Marks & Spencer plc Executive Chairman Sir Stuart Rose, veteran of several complex company transformations, received the 2007 Chairman’s Award and is an Honorary Fellow of the Institute for Turnaround.
