About

TMA is about more than just turnaround. TMA members are a professional community that seeks to strengthen the global economy by working to save distressed businesses, assist management to navigate off-plan events, and help healthy companies avoid similar pitfalls.

Connectivity, Inclusion, Market Profile

TMA is the premier professional community dedicated to turnaround management and corporate renewal. We are about connectivity, inclusion and supporting our market and community.

TMA’s strength comes from its diverse membership – professionals from many disciplines committed to a common goal: to stabilise and revitalise corporate value.

The TMA Australia Chapter is committed to promoting the benefits that the turnaround industry offers the Australian business community, facilitating a deeper restructuring market in Australia, and fostering a turnaround culture in the broader region.

TMA’s People

TMA Australia (TMAA) is a non-profit association.  The TMAA Board consists of 14 Directors and there are State and NextGen Committees in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia.

TMAA’s local membership (close to 800 members) includes major trading banks, investment banks, private equity firms, hedge funds, finance, law, accounting & management consulting firms, together with chief restructuring officers; principally those who are actively engaged in financial and operational restructuring or provide ancillary professional advice.

The TMA is a truly global, member-centric organisation with almost 10,000 members worldwide in 20 countries. We offer our members over 30 events annually around Australia. The sharing of insights and the important learning that takes place at such events form a vital part of the TMA project.

TMA Australia is honoured to be sponsored by leading turnaround firms, and thanks go to our Australian sponsors.

Supporting our market and community


TMAA’s commercial objective is to encourage and educate Board members and proprietors of distressed and underperforming companies to seek the support of TMAA member organisations early, before the business is at risk of insolvency. TMAA concurrently targets businesses that are shifting from maturity phase with growth ambitions; a point of the business life cycle when stakeholders would not typically be aware that restructuring initiatives must be pursued to ensure continued viability and business momentum.

We advocate early intervention to promote increased optionality for business and its incumbent stakeholders. This has significant consequential flow-on effects for business, including job preservation, economic stimulation, and wider community engagement.

Turnaround Assistance

Against the volatile global economic backdrop and the present flux experienced within the broader Australian marketplace, Boards, Financiers and Shareholders are increasingly recognising and embracing dedicated turnaround professionals to advise and restructure challenged businesses and business models.

Beyond this, TMAA is committed to supporting Foodbank in our community, to broader policy and reform measures, affecting the business community aimed at mitigating corporate losses and failures. This extends to professional development programs to be relaunched in 2020 and the Certified Turnaround Professional designation.
