77, passed away unexpectedly on August 28, 2020 in his home in North Kingstown, RI with his loving wife Lori Ann (Maroni) Dangremond by his side. He was born on March 26, 1943 to Nelson and Nancy (Robertson) Dangremond in Norfolk, VA. He leaves his son Erik (grandson Zachary), daughter Kirsten (Hans) Jensen (granddaughters Freya and Maggie), former wife Denise Hyland Dangremond, brother Bruce (Bobbi Rose) and sister Mary Kay. He also leaves his stepsons Derek (Marissa), Brett (Fatima), and Matt.
Bob earned an M.B.A. from New York University and a B.S. in Agricultural Economics from Rutgers University. His career spanned 45 years in the finance and corporate restructuring industries. He was a VP in Chase Manhattan Bank's worldwide commodities division, the CFO and Treasurer of Leach & Garner Company in Attleboro, MA, and a Vice Chairman of AlixPartners where he co-led the firm's turnaround and restructuring practice both in North America and worldwide. He held the positions of Chairman, CFO, President, CRO, CFO, Treasurer, and Director in numerous major public and private corporations during their bankruptcies and restructurings.
Bob was well known for his employees-first commitment and attitude, his strong talent for building consensus and camaraderie among staff, management, creditors, and shareholders, often in crisis-charged turnaround situations.
He served on the Boards of INSOL, the Institute of Marine and Coastal Science at Rutgers, and the Greater New York Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
Bob's passion was fly fishing. His fishing expeditions included New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, Zambia, Iceland, and the western US. He also enjoyed skiing, cycling, hiking, windsurfing, golf, and gardening. His high energy level and "can do" attitude were infectious and inspired family members, friends, and business associates to reach higher and go further than they might think possible.
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, a small, private memorial celebration is being held. In lieu of flowers, if you wish to honor Bob's memory, please consider a donation to Her Justice (, an organization that offers pro bono legal assistance to disadvantaged women in New York.
Arrangements entrusted to: A.A. Mariani & Son Funeral Home, Providence.

When I was going through the recruiting process at AlixPartners in '05, my 1st round of interviews were in NY and the 1st person I met was Bob...such an accomplished man. I was expecting a very tough interview but he was genuinely warm and engaging and gave me a great first impression of of the firm. An wonderful man and we will miss him. My condolences to Lori Ann and the entire family.

Deeply saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. Bob was a giant in the turnaround world and one of the main reasons I joined AlixPartners was my initial meeting with him, where his rare combination of deep expertise, warmth and humour totally wowed me. He gave his time, experience and wise counsel so generously and was a wonderful colleague, mentor and friend. My sincere condolences to his family, friends and the whole AlixPartners community on a great loss.

I have such fond memories of working with Bob whilst we were colleagues at AlixPartners. He was a true mentor and a friend over my 8 year Alix career. Empathetic and smooth but with such presence and gravitas in a room. My thoughts and condolences with the full Dangremond family

Bob was a very dear friend and kind soul as is his loving wife Lori. Bob touched both my wife Leann and I deeply and profoundly. His zest for life and especially his love and passion for his wonderful Lori made them both a very very special couple to be with. We enjoyed may dinners at their and our home, including New Years eve and fireworks on our beach. We all also enjoyed many cribbage games! We are truly shattered to have lost our dear friend and look to honoring him by keeping close to Lori.

We had the absolute pleasure of meeting Bob through Lori only a couple of times. He was so kind and sweet. Lori is a part of our equine therapeutic program here at Yellow Horse. She has become family to us. Our hearts and our sympathy go out to Lori and all of the family through this very sad and difficult time. Blessings to all. Much love to you Lori.

I am terribly sorry to learn of Bob's passing. Bob was a critical component of the global consulting firm AlixPartners' remarkably steady growth for 30 years; from start-up to national leadership to international strength. He was a mentor to hundreds of professionals, young and old, both within the firm and across the restructuring community. His family is in our thoughts.
