About Certus 

Unwavering commitment from start to finish.
At Certus, we not only develop plans to turnaround underperforming businesses or restructuring concepts, we implement those plans, seeing them all the way through. Whether turning around a failing business, leading the development of a complimentary asset to expand or bolster a business for acquisition or long-term success, restructuring debt to minimize loss, or executing a campaign to sell an asset, Certus is a creative and committed advisor and an advocate willing to do what it takes to help our clients achieve the best possible outcome.

We take a multi-faceted approach to addressing our clients’ challenges and we work passionately and persistently to see solutions through to the end. We know that there are no shortcuts to long term success—rather it can only be achieved through, hard work, a can-do attitude, and the ability to see a solution amid complexity. Our success is determined by our clients’ successes, and the knowledge that we can help preserve reputations, jobs, and even communities by helping businesses thrive.

  • Financial Advisor
  • General of Limited Receiver
  • Assignee
  • Owners Representative

  • Interim Chief Restructuring Officer
  • Expert Testimony
  • Real Estate Broker
  • Portfolio Management

Our Story

Founded in 2009, Certus was a creation born out of frustration.  Too many professional outfits develop a plan but then do not lead it; or have a narrow scope, causing clients to engage multiple groups to take on a specific project.  Certus sees projects through, committed to clients and working tirelessly to see  successful conclusions.  This culture has earned Certus recognition on multiple occasions by lead associations, such as the Minnesota Chapter of the Turnaround Management Association’s Turnaround of the Year and the M&A Advisors “Real Estate Deal of the Year.” Our vast portfolio of successful projects delivered over the years tells our story best.

We have expertise and work across many industries, including:

  • Senior Care (Health Care)
  • Hospitality
  • Education
  • Renewable Energy
  • Commercial Real Estate
  • Sports and Entertainment
  • Mixed Use
  • Multi Family
