The Chicago/Midwest Chapter of the Turnaround Management Association (“TMA”) honored Ray Anderson with the prestigious 2004 Turnaround of the Year Award for its successful restructuring of McCartin Industrial Services (, a leading industrial maintenance and mechanical contracting firm headquartered in Hammond, Indiana. The award, presented at the TMA's Senior Executives Forum on October 20th, recognizes Mr. Anderson's outstanding leadership in helping McCartin to achieve record increases in revenue, securing high-profile new business, and producing record profits in a short period of time.
