WASHINGTON, March 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced the appointment of Dan Hunter as a Senior Managing Director and Americas Head of the Financial Services practice within the firm’s Strategic Communications segment.
Mr. Hunter, who will be based in New York City and report to Brian Kennedy, the segment’s Head of the Americas, has almost two decades of banking and financial services sector experience and brings deep global corporate affairs and crisis communications expertise to FTI Consulting. In his role as Americas Head of Financial Services, Mr. Hunter will work closely with senior leaders throughout the firm to maximize business success in the growing sector, and he will lead a multidisciplinary team advising clients as they navigate a constantly changing environment of financial regulations and enforcement actions, litigation threats, and economic and competitive challenges.
“Dan is a proven and respected communications leader with deep subject-matter expertise in the banking and financial services sector, which will make him a tremendous asset to our Financial Services team as they help clients mitigate risks and maximize commercial opportunities,” Mr. Kennedy said. “Having worked inside two of the world’s leading institutions in the sector, in London as well as New York, Dan will provide the kind of unique, global and client-centric insights and perspectives that management teams in highly regulated industries truly value.”
Mr. Hunter joins FTI Consulting from Deutsche Bank, where he served as Head of Corporate Communications for the Americas and the Global Investment Bank. While at Deutsche Bank, he led the organization through a period of significant change and strategic repositioning.
