Marty, The Dot Com Cleanup Guy
from the you-don't-want-him-showing-up-at-your-door dept
Business Week has a profile of Marty Pichinson, the guy your VCs call to shut down your company. He's apparently quite the badass when it comes to cleaning up dot com messes. He sells off assets and shuts the company down quietly (without a lot of negative publicity that the VCs hate). How much do services like that cost? $75,000 or 7.5% of the assets sold off - whichever is higher. Seems like good work if you can get it. The interesting thing, though, is that Marty and his VC friends expect him to be very busy over the next few months as the next wave of tech companies (mostly telecom startups) need to be "cleaned".
