Hawkeye Growth

Todd Filsinger and the FEP team were the lead restructuring advisors for Hawkeye Growth’s debt holders. In addition, FEP provided executive management services for Hawkeye Growth, LLC. Hawkeye Growth was a 220-million-gallon-per-year ethanol production company with two production facilities in Iowa employing approximately 50 people. Experts from FEP acted as CEO, CFO, and COO for Hawkeye Growth and provided other supporting functions. The FEP team was responsible for all activities of the company including the production, sale, and transport of ethanol. During this interim role, the management team, led by the FEP team, managed Hawkeye Growth’s operations, margins, and cash flow while addressing complex third-party contractual issues, critical employment issues, and significant environmental matters. FEP’s efforts culminated in the sale of the Hawkeye Growth facilities to Flint Hills Resources. Upon completion of the sale, the interim management team conducted a successful transition to the new owner and the incoming management team.
