Zach Rose

Senior Director

Zach joined Portage Point as its first employee in 2016, and currently serves as a Senior Director in the firm’s Chicago office. Zach’s professional experience includes in-court and out-of-court restructurings, end-to-end business transformations, mergers & acquisitions, debt capital raises and financial / operational turnarounds.

While at Portage Point, Zach has led dozens of notable engagements spanning multiple Portage Point service lines:

  • Served as Deputy Chief Restructuring Officer (CRO) and Plan Administrator of Big Village, a global advertising, technology and data company. Under Zach’s leadership, Big Village entered Chapter 11 Bankruptcy with consensual use of cash collateral, ample liquidity and multiple stalking horse proposals. Continued business transformation initiatives, active liquidity management and post-petition marketing efforts led to a competitive auction that preserved hundreds of jobs and significantly maximized sale proceeds. The Secured Creditors received more than double their expected recovery.
  • Served in Interim President capacity during the business transformation, sale process and capital raise for Kaspien Inc. (NASDAQ: KSPN), a public, third-party marketplace retailer on Amazon. The engagement was recognized as Corporate Turnaround of the Year by TMA.
  • Led the European carve out of StubHub International where Zach oversaw the strategic development and execution of day-to-day operational activities required to successfully stand up the newly acquired business.
  • Served in interim Chief Financial Officer capacity and led a subsequent Office of the CFO mandate for a $400+ million revenue manufacturing company. Zach helped implement stringent cash management practices to stabilize liquidity and improve go-forward customer / vendor payment terms.
  • Led execution efforts for Hornbeck Offshore Services during its successful Chapter 11 proceedings, where he oversaw contingency planning, liquidity management, business plan development and bankruptcy reporting.

Prior to joining Portage Point, Zach was an investment banker at Moelis and Company in New York where he advised debtors, creditors and equity holders on a wide-range of transactions.

Zach graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.
