Business Turnaround Specialist
If your business is in a pickle, call Dill
 Craig Dill

+1 (505) 459-3030

For over 30 years Craig Dill has been resolving thorny financial issues for middle sized businesses.  His specialty is coming up with creative answers to the ugly problems that the world offers up.

An early auditing career gave Mr. Dill a background reviewing commercial credit and exposed him to the numerous possible ways to handle similar situations. In one year, he worked with over thirty different companies. This expertise gives him the ability to walk in the door of almost any business and identify problem areas quickly.

Sometimes, that “problem” is growth! As CFO at ProLaw Software, he worked with the company to implement their very first budgets. The organization became an Inc 500 List of Fastest Growing Company that grew from $2.4 million in sales to $12 million in sales during the twenty-eight months he worked with them.

Sometimes a “problem” arises due to different concerned parties with different agendas being unable to reconcile their views on a subject. In his roles as VP of Finance with Kelly Lumber, Manager of Engineering Support at Basis and CFO at Prolaw Software, Mr. Dill was often called upon to mediate issues between opposing parties. As a consultant, he works to resolve issues between former partners, former employers, creditors, and others finding solutions that are agreeable to both sides.

Sometimes a “problem” is really a PROBLEM. That’s when his core strength of persistence in the face of a adversity comes in to play. A recent client was in the predicament of a 70% drop in sales. The client had already made significant cuts. Mr. Dill devised a creative solution to renegotiate the business’s loans that enabled the company to reduce its’ debt and gave the client a much longer time period to repay that debt. His experience and knowledge as a current Bankruptcy Trustee gives him an insider view on all aspects of the bancruptcy process and the ability to provide unique specialized advice for those considering that option.

Mr. Dill resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico. (“The Financial Capital of the World”) Where he has earned the moniker of “Toxic Waste Disposal Guy” for his ability to manage and provide positive results for seemingly impossibly contentious situations. He has worked with a diverse group of industries including Manufacturing, Distribution, Software Development, Software Implementation and Sales, Building Materials, Construction and Related Trades. When he is not solving the ugly problems of the world, you can find him riding his bike for charity or traveling.
