Capital Restoration LLC (CRL) was formed in the 1990s by Armand Lucarelli to assist companies in transition. Our mission continues to be providing understandable and useful knowledge along with concise and definitive action plans that work. We are deeply aware of the team-building, pressures, and challenges of operating a business in today’s global marketplace.


Our team has all been there as CXOs and we are keenly aware of what it takes to succeed. We partner with our clients, building on everyone’s strengths for success. It takes hard work, perseverance, and an unrelenting desire to succeed. We are guided in all of our work by a number of core values including honesty, integrity, and dedication to add value.

Since our founding, the CRL team has been effectively assessing complex situations and executing financially-focused solutions for a variety of middle-market companies, in a wide array of industries (including nonprofits).

CRL provides business owners and their stakeholders with solid solutions. From designing strategies to accelerate growth, improving operations, understanding and solving working capital shortfalls, providing a steady hand during crises, and implementing creative turnaround plans, to the execution of successful divestitures, we lead our clients down a clear path towards solid financial solutions. Our team is relied upon by middle-market companies who seek CXO-level counsel, be it in an advisory or interim-management role.
