Jon Henes

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Drawing on his 25-year track record as one of the nation's leading restructuring, corporate governance, and crisis advisors, Jon founded C Street to help clients navigate their most challenging situations and capture their biggest opportunities.


While a practicing lawyer, Jon observed a fracture in the world of special situations. As situations played out fast and in real-time, the need for expert communications and strategic guidance was critical as even the smallest communication mistake could lead to damage and confusion. Jon saw the opportunity to step in and assure that clients and their professionals worked collaboratively to develop a foundational narrative built on a sound understanding of the process and the dynamics that play out in special situations.


Jon is described as "very practical, creative, and has an exceptional ability to sort out what is really important” and “understands the big picture and works relentlessly to achieve results.” Notably, Jon led the engagement of Fullbeauty Brands, the first one-day Chapter 11 case in history.
