O’Keefe was recently awarded the Restructuring Community Impact Award (under $50 million) by The M&A Advisor for the restructure of Youthville.  Youthville is a non-profit organization that provides critically needed after school programming to under serviced teens in Detroit.  Brad Coulter, a Managing Director at O’Keefe, worked with the Skillman Foundation as well as other stakeholders to get this project to the finish line.

On Tuesday, March 11th, The M&A Advisor will present the 2014 awards at the Awards Gala in Palm Beach, FL, in conjunction with the 2014 M&A Advisor Distressed Investing Summit.
