Eric Winthrop is the head of Houlihan Lokey’s Liability Management and Special Situations practice. He specializes in liability management, M&A, and financing, and special situations transactions, and his experience spans numerous industries.
Winthrop has been a leader within HL’s restructuring group ever since joining the firm over 20 years ago. As a younger professional (and the youngest Managing Director promotion in the history of HL), he took on the more administrative aspects of running the LA office for HL FRG and for FRG globally. Currently, as one of the top revenue producers in the group, Winthrop is running the firm’s LA financial restructuring practice, which includes managing the recruiting, staffing, deal management, resource allocation, budget, and other general group management and administration activities. In addition, most recently he was appointed as the head of the firm’s Liability Management Group, which the firm recently created based on the success he had in pursuing and winning primarily company advisory focused Liability Management engagements for the firm.
