Sheila T. Smith has added a new role at Deloitte Financial Advisory Services, adding responsibility as restructuring services leader for the Americas region, while continuing to serve as co-leader of the U.S. corporate restructuring group.
The more than 20-year restructuring and bankruptcy veteran has previously focused her efforts on manufacturing, distribution, technology and retail, among other areas, the company said Thursday.
“She has been a driving force in the restructuring practice in the Americas region, and I have no doubt that she will build on our existing foundation to help us leap ahead in the marketplace,” said John Trinta, managing director of Deloitte Americas.
Smith is a recipient of the New York Institute of Credit Executive Woman of the Year and was also honored with the Turnaround Management Association’s 2012 Chairman’s Award.
She earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from the State Univeristy of New York and had since added a masters in business administration from Boston University.
