I have had the opportunity to work closely with Franklind when I was with Textron Financial. While we were in different groups we overlapped quite a bit. Franklind was a very well respected Senior Asset Manager and Workout Specialist. He was always given the most challenging and complicated accounts to manage and always did a fantastic job. he was very close with the Company's CEO and entire executive credit managers. I enjoyed working with Franklind and found his capability and professionalism second to none.

I worked opposite Franklind in the Mego Financial/Leisure Industries matter in Reno, Nevada. In that matter, I first represented GE Real Estate (Heller Financial) and later the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors. Franklind represented Textron Financial, the major secured creditor in the case. I found Franklind to be the consummate professional. He was and is extremely knowledgeable in his tradecraft, a savvy negotiator and a practical, bottom line-oriented person. Without his participation in the matter, I suspect a resolution may have never been reached. I unreservedly recommend Franklind to any person or company that may be seeking his assistance.
Bankruptcy Attorney/ Adjunct Professor
Hunton & Williams LLP/
University of Wisconsin
I first worked with Franklind, as his counsel, in a workout/bankruptcy for which he was responsible at Textron Financial Corporation. He distinguished himself by insisting that we work through every obvious and non-obvious scenario, and consistently challenged conventional thinking. This led to both creative and successful outcomes in that case.
Since then he has created his own financial advisory firm, Tactical Financial, where he continues that mental discipline and practice. Few people are able to bring his dedication and commitment to an assignment; and inasmuch as he has deliberately kept his firm small, he puts himself fully into every assignment and is able to do so at modest expense compared to some of the larger financial advisory firms in the restructuring business. When you hire Tactical Financial, you get Franklind. I recommend him highly.
