Its headcount also jumped from 575 consultants to over 1,400, while boosting the company to approximately half a billion dollars in annual revenues.

Ankura has reinforced its construction advisory services practice with the addition of Randall Coxworth. In his new role as a senior managing director based out of Los Angeles, Coxworth will leverage over 20 years of consulting and construction sector experience to develop strategic growth initiatives for C-suite clients. His expertise spans program and project management services, strategic delivery, risk identification, contract control assessments, and process performance reviews.Ankura adds Randall Coxworth as senior managing director in LA officePrior to joining Ankura, Coxworth spent 8 years as a managing director at consulting firm Protoviti, first as capital projects consulting segment leader, and then as global leader of the business performance improvement practice.
