Olaf Poorthuis may seem headstrong at times, but is always open to another perspective. So long as that vision is substantiated and realistic. Because those are his conditions. When Olaf goes to bat, he fights for all he is worth. And in bankruptcies, he fights for all the company - or its components - are worth. First, he always carefully assesses the chances of survival, and then cuts out, with surgical precision, the components to be sold off, spun off or liquidated. On the intellectual level, he loves a challenge. The more complex the material, the deeper he will dig. His drive and efficiency guarantee a process that all parties can endorse.
