When I was 7 years old, my parents moved our family from South Africa to America. Their countless sacrifices to provide a better life for my sisters and me is motivation enough for me to be the best I can be every day.
Sandor Jacobson
Principal, CPA


As the leader of the Chicago restructuring and transformation team, I help lighten the burdens of stakeholders who are facing difficult business decisions. My client base spans all sectors within the middle market, but whatever the organization’s industry focus happens to be, I guide its decision-makers toward better times using a practical, results-driven approach. I specialize in restructuring, cash flow projections and liquidity management, profitability improvement, and bankruptcy.

My clients appreciate the fact that I know just how much a company’s distress can affect its stakeholders. I strive to outperform expectations, and I always bring both a professional and a compassionate mindset to an engagement.

I believe that a career in restructuring finds you. I previously worked for a large startup technology company that filed for bankruptcy in 2001, and I was retained by the trustee to assist with the liquidation. I found the process fascinating — and the rest, as they say, is history.

I belong to the AICPA, the Illinois CPA Society, the Turnaround Management Association, the Association for Corporate Growth, and the Association of Insolvency & Restructuring Advisors. I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin and also attended Northwestern University, where I focused my studies on accounting.

A good day for me begins with a six-mile (or longer) run. I also love to travel and follow my favorite sports teams, including the Dallas Cowboys. I spend most of my free time with my wife; our three children; and Marley, our six-pound Shih Tzu.
