Jeff Cornish has a history of providing strong leadership as a CEO, and President and CEO of fast growing and successful companies, as well in distressed situations. In his most recent role, Jeff successfully restructured a large restaurant company through Chapter 11, and transitioned the company to new private equity ownership.

His experience spans industries as diverse as transportation, retailing and restaurants. As President and CEO of Performance Transportation Services (PTS), Jeff led a company with the second largest market share among vehicle delivery companies. He was able to successfully restructure the company with lenders and transition it to new private equity ownership during one of the most difficult periods in the history of the auto industry.

Prior to that Jeff was a senior executive for 14 years with Pilot Travel Centers, a national petroleum retailer and restaurant franchisee with sales in excess of $9 billion and over 15,000 employees. He played an integral role in facilitating the company's rapid growth through joint ventures, mergers, acquisitions and private placements of debt.

As an advisor and interim executive, Jeff has served clients as President, Chief Restructuring Officer, CFO, and Chief Marketing Officer. He has deep experience in the kind of distressed and troubled situations that can represent buy side M&A opportunities.

He has a B.S. in Accounting from Penn State University, an MBA in Finance from Indiana University, and carries a current CPA license.
