NorthStar Management History and Overview

NorthStar Management (NSM) is a division of FCCO, LLC. Established in March of 1996, NorthStar was originally founded to assist businesses in bankruptcy restructurings, and to assist Venture Capital / Private Equity firms in taking portfolio companies to the next level. NSM is registered with the Federal Bankruptcy Courts and can access all electronic legal filings in each of these courts across the country. NorthStar professionals have extensive national and global experience. NorthStar is led by Don Matheson, one of the original founders.

As a result of the intense requirement for companies to generate cash and improve operational performance in a short period of time, NSM utilized its extensive expertise with Fortune 500 companies to design a number of highly targeted tools that can generate immediate performance improvements. NorthStar has reached beyond its early objectives and now offers these tools to companies wanting to grow their business or raise their level of performance. Our profit improvement services typically yield a success rate in excess of 90%.

Organizations that NorthStar partners support include The Institute of Management Consultants (IMC), The American Management Association (AMA), The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), and The Turnaround Management Association. In addition Don Matheson serves on the Board of Directors for the Carolinas Region of IMC, which includes southern Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
