NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AlixPartners, the global
business-advisory firm, today announced a major commitment to and expansion of
its advisory service offerings to underperforming companies and their
constituents with the addition of Randall S. Eisenberg, a veteran practitioner

broad-based combination of business capabilities to provide a unique approach
to advising creditor constituents seeking to maximize their return or recovery
in underperforming situations.
Said Fred Crawford, CEO of AlixPartners: "AlixPartners is uniquely positioned
to help clients in many different situations achieve better outcomes. With a
long history serving clients in an advisory capacity, we are now making an
even greater commitment to the Transformation and Restructuring Advisory
Practice, led by Randall and Alan, both nationally recognized veterans."
Eisenberg, who has led many large, high-profile national and international
transformation and restructuring assignments, has extensive experience in the
development and implementation of effective turnaround strategies and in
advising constituents seeking returns or recovery. His diverse background
extends to numerous industries such as automotive, airlines, manufacturing,
restaurants and retail, and he has served as a senior advisor to companies,
secured lenders and unsecured creditors, as well as represented potential
acquirers of distressed businesses. His high-profile engagements have included
Delphi, Visteon, US Airways and Jackson Hewitt.
Said Eisenberg: "I am extremely excited to be joining AlixPartners and am
humbled by the tremendous talent the firm has to offer. The unparalleled
operational expertise, significant functional depth and broad industry
capabilities at AlixPartners provide me and the clients we serve with a unique
platform for delivering unmatched service and effective results."

PricewaterhouseCoopers' business recovery services practice. A certified
turnaround professional and a certified public accountant, he holds a master's
degree in management from Northwestern University and a bachelor's degree from
