Keith Maib, Senior Managing Director of Mackinac Partners, is not your typical East Coast restructuring advisor. A self-proclaimed Navy brat, Keith was born in Honolulu and grew up in a lower, middle-class Kansas City suburb where he was raised primarily by his grandparents. He worked his way through college (he’s a proud Jayhawk from The University of Kansas), including graveyard shifts at a Ford Motor plant and the Federal Reserve bank.

But all of Keith’s hard work, sacrifice and faith (all of which he credits for his success) ultimately paid off. Immediately upon graduating from UK Keith joined Price Waterhouse as an auditor, eventually making partner in 1993. A year later Keith left PW, spending the next 14 years serving in myriad C-level and turnaround capacities before finally joining Mackinac Partners in 2008.

To revisit the ups and downs, twists and turns, and all that he has encountered during his 25+ year career, Keith recently joined Debtwire senior legal content specialist Richard Goldman on the latest edition of The Inside Track. During their conversation, Keith details how Colt Defense was his most difficult engagement, PlayPower was his most successful assignment, and why a “turnaround” is much harder than a “restructuring”.
