Documents filed when the company collapsed into Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May this year showed that Juszkiewicz had just a year’s tenure as company head, so the search for a replacement will come as no surprise. It does, however, raise intriguing questions about the direction in which Gibson will be headed as the advert calls for someone with expertise in “private equity experience including a successful ‘exit.’” suggesting that the company’s owners may be looking for a new financial structure, once it has slimmed down.
