Stretto is pleased to announce the acquisition of the525group, the premier recruiting firm focused in the corporate-restructuring industry. Acquiring the525group provides Stretto with a unique brand of industry expertise tailored to the natural expansion of our team moving forward. Sarah Frankel, founder and CEO of the525group, will join Stretto as Executive Director of Business Development helping guide the business development strategy of our corporate restructuring services. Sarah has nearly 15 years of experience in the corporate-restructuring industry, most recently having spent the last four years building the industry’s preeminent recruiting firm servicing law firms, financial advisors, claims agents and other corporate-restructuring professionals.
Stretto has spent the last eighteen months building the industry’s strongest and most experienced team of corporate-restructuring experts, and Sarah Frankel and the525group have played a central role in that process. With our organic build of the newest claims-agent platform in the industry, our acquisition of the market-leading bankruptcy-attorney software platform (Best Case), and our continued growth of the industry’s most comprehensive specialty-deposits practice, acquiring the525group represents a natural step in executing on our business strategy of recruiting, on-boarding and training talent who is aligned with our mission of building the technology and services engine that sits at the center of the bankruptcy ecosystem.
Sarah plays an active role in the corporate-restructuring community as a member of TMA, ABI and IWIRC, previously serving in board positions for TMA NextGen, IWIRC and IWIRC NY. Sarah has been recognized as an Emerging Leader by M&A Advisor and was awarded the International Rising Star award by IWIRC. We look forward to continuing our journey with Sarah and the525group as part of the Stretto family.
