"Tom Epley has done more hands-on turnarounds than just about anyone. He understands that a reasonably good strategy adopted now and executed well is much better than the perfect strategy figured out later or poorly implemented."
~ David Bonderman, Principal, General Partner, and Founder Texas Pacific Buyout Group;
former COO Robert Bass Group
"Tom gets it! He understands the academic theories but doesn't dwell on them, rather interpolating them into clearly defined, practical action plans that accomplish the mission. A great lesson for all of us."
~ Bruce Willson, Dean UCLA Anderson Graduate School of Management;
former CEO First Interstate Bank of California;
former CEO Home Savings of America
"Tom Epley is an exceptional entrepreneur. He is able to recognize potential where most only see grey skies. He is one of the few who knows how to convert vision into results."
~ Thom Weisel, Founder, Chairman, and CEO Thomas Weisel Partners;
Co-Founder, Former Chairman, and CEO Montgomery Securities
"I've seen Tom successfully work his turnaround magic on numerous occasions. It turns out his "magic" is actually a coherent and thoughtful management approach."
~ Dave Stanton, Founder and Managing Partner, Francisco Partners
