WASHINGTON, Oct. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced the appointment of Anthony Primiano as a Senior Managing Director in the Broker-Dealer Regulatory & Litigation group within the firm’s Financial Services practice.
Mr. Primiano, who is based in New York, brings nearly 30 years of experience in compliance, regulatory and risk management in the broker-dealer space of the financial services industry. He will provide FTI Consulting clients with compliance advisory and risk management services and will bring his unique experience and skillset to assist with regulatory investigations, internal reviews, compliance risk assessments and compliance remediation planning, particularly in domestic and international wealth management.
“Our experts bring first-hand knowledge of the financial services industry, having served in the same roles that many of our clients occupy,” said Anthony Italiano, Co-Head of the Broker-Dealer Regulatory & Litigation group at FTI Consulting. “Anthony’s background leading risk and compliance functions at some of the world’s largest financial institutions enhances our ability to help clients meet their business objectives on both a proactive and reactive basis while they navigate complex challenges and opportunities.”
