Joseph Greenwood Joins Livingstone

Joseph Greenwood has joined boutique bank Livingstone as Chicago-based head of the firm’s special situations practice. He previously was director of special situation for William Blair & Co.


Livingstone, the leading independent, international investment banking firm, today announced the addition of Joseph Greenwood to the firm’s Chicago team. Greenwood brings over ten years of restructuring, distressed M&A, and financial advisory expertise to the firm.

Greenwood joins Livingstone as Director of Special Situations from William Blair & Co., where he was one of three founding members of that firm’s Restructuring Group. He has advised public and private companies both in and outside chapter 11, as well as creditors’ committees and private equity sponsors. Previously,
Greenwood served as Vice President at Mesirow Financial Consulting (formerly KPMG Corporate Recovery).

“I am excited to join the Livingstone team and to take a leadership position among the firm’s other fine professionals, especially at such a critical time in the market cycle,” said Greenwood. “Livingstone’s platform and momentum provide a strong foundation to build a leading distressed practice in the middle market.”

Greenwood will augment the firm’s existing special situations team which closed four distressed deals in the last year, including the §363 sale of Advantage Rent a Car to Hertz in 2009.

“We are pleased to add another talented professional to our fast-growing team,” said partner Stephen Miles, “and we are confident that Joe will serve our clients with the same exacting standard of excellence Livingstone has established.”

Greenwood earned his MBA with High Distinction from Georgetown University and his BBA in Accountancy from the University of Wisconsin. He is a CPA and Certified Insolvency and Restructuring Advisor.
