Dallas, Texas – August 29, 2017 – VIP Search & Solutions Group welcomes Matthew Edwards as Managing Director of Client Services. “Matthew brings a wealth of knowledge to VIP clients that has been gained from over 12 years of client service. His finance, operations and management expertise will provide great value to our clients.” said Jess Padek, a VIP Partner. “We are very fortunate to have such a talented individual as part of our team!”
Matthew began his career serving clients of PricewaterhouseCoopers as an auditor, where he quickly recognized an opportunity to provide the under-served, smaller clients of the big four with the same level service expected for world class organizations. Thereafter, Matthew joined another consulting firm, not only growing their mid-market practice, but also establishing their Houston office and growing the firm’s business service offerings into a nationally recognized practice.
“My career has been focused on curing financial and operational issues plaguing my clients. Quantitatively, that has resulted in improved earnings and multiples for my clients. Qualitatively, I like to think I’ve helped my client’s employees enjoy improved day to day stability and continuity.” said Matthew of his career in client service.
His experience covers the traditional financial, accounting and management functions, as well as significant operational improvement projects that have resulted in successful restructurings of GE and Vanguard Health Systems entities, acquisitions, working capital disputes and divestitures.
“Matthew is one of the most financially astute individuals I have had the pleasure of working with. His ability to quickly assess a situation and provide the necessary solutions to solve complex financial issues is truly impressive.” said Larry Atherton, President of Uptown Solar.
Recently, Matthew settled a working capital dispute that resulted in over $40 million of cash recovery for his client. Overall, Matthew’s project teams have saved or recovered over $75 million dollars for their clients in various working capital disputes.
“Matthew’s client successes make him ideally suited to implement our vision of consulting services, and thereby completing the VIP suite of client service offerings. Our complimentary suites of consulting, staffing and search services enable our clients to have the flexibility required to build stability and continuity in their accounting and finance organizations.” said Mike Haynes, a VIP Partner.
