Restructuring & operations – Spring Associates

Restructuring & operations

We help investors achieving operational excellence in their portfolio companies with a hands-on approach. Our experience covers restructuring, with a focus on reducing cost and working capital; growth, with a focus on extending capacity and driving the capex agenda; and ESG / responsible investment, with a focus on the social and sustainability elements of the operations strategy.



We have helped leadership teams of privately held companies in restructuring supply chains, factories, and logistical operations both for expansion and for reducing over-capacity. What sets us apart in this work is our long ESG track record and the close eye we have on the social and long-term sustainability side of the operations agenda.

ESG & responsible investment

Our ESG & Responsible Investment practice has continued under the banner of MJ Hudson, the asset management consultancy based in London. With over 10 years of experience in ESG we developed market intelligence, proprietary tools and a solutions repository. The tried and tested approach translates long-term industry ESG views into business priorities. MJ Hudson Spring identifies actionable solutions, and tracks progress on KPIs to maximize overlap between ESG and real value creation. The proprietary framework is compatible with international industry standards (e.g. UNPRI, SASB and SDGs) and the award-winning reports place firms in the top quartile of ESG reporting.
