Paul Share was selected by the Warrington College of Business Administration Fisher School of Accounting as a 2016 Outstanding Young Alumni (OYA) of the University of Florida. He was recently honored on April 8, 2016, with other recipients at a luncheon. Share is a managing director of Conway MacKenzie Inc., a financial advisory firm, and is based out of its Atlanta regional office.
Established in 2006 by the University of Florida Alumni Association to recognize Gators who are leaders in their profession and community, each college selects one award recipient on an annual basis. Criteria include being within 10 years of graduation, making a significant impact on their industry and having professional accomplishments at the State, National or International level.
“I was thrilled just to be nominated for this award by Dr. Gary McGill, my former professor and current director and associate dean at the Fisher School of Accounting. It is an honor to receive it, and I appreciate the selection committee's decision after reviewing my extensive experience in the financial industry,” stated Share who received his Bachelor of Science and Masters of Accounting from the Fisher School of Accounting in 2003 through a joint degree program.
Share’s interim management, turnaround, crisis management, bankruptcy and restructuring expertise spans a variety of industries. Further expertise includes working with senior management, secured lenders, unsecured creditors and equity owners to develop and implement operational and financial restructuring strategies to improve performance, increase liquidity, and maximize recovery value.
“Paul consistently delivers outstanding results for his clients, adding significant value wherever he goes,” said Greg Charleston, senior managing director at Conway MacKenzie and leader of the Atlanta regional office. “Due to his leadership in the marketplace and within our own firm, we are pleased to see him recognized for his hard work and dedication.”
Share was also recognized last month by Turnarounds & Workouts, a monthly news source for people tracking distressed businesses. He was chosen as one of ten People to Watch 2016: Business Professionals Making Their Mark.
