Global business advisory firm FTI Consulting has appointed Emre Carr as a senior managing director in its dispute advisory services practice, within the forensic and litigation consulting segment.

Carr will be based out of New York, where he will advise clients on accounting, financial economics, and regulatory issues. He has experience with Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules and regulations, Ponzi schemes, insider trading, valuation, structured finance, and materiality analyses, among others. 

Carr previously worked at Berkeley Research Group, serving as a managing director in the capital markets practice. He was also a senior financial economist at the SEC’s Division of Risk, Strategy, and Financial Innovation. There, he played a key, expert role in developing the Accounting Quality Model, a quantitative tool the SEC uses to detect accounting and disclosure violations. He holds a doctorate in accounting from Northwestern University and an MBA in finance from the University of Southern California.

“Emre’s expertise in accounting and finance and experience in a variety of complex securities and valuation matters will be a significant benefit to our clients as they navigate contentious matters and seek to protect their reputation and enterprise value,” Stephen Prowse, a senior managing director at FTI Consulting, said. “In particular, his experience at the Securities and Exchange Commission adds to our deep bench of talent in this area, and I am excited to welcome him to FTI Consulting.”

Carr’s appointment is one of a swath of new senior managing director hires at FTI Consulting. The firm in March hired Rodolfo Araujo in the strategic communications segment, and earlier this month announced Rena Verma and Colleen Hsia would join the New York office in the technology segment and the strategic communications segment, respectively.

Additionally, FTI in May expanded its energy sector with the addition of Seth Arnold and Peter McKenzie as managing directors. Arnold joined the turnaround and restructuring practice in New York, while McKenzie joined the business transformation practice in Dallas.

FTI Consulting offers services that help businesses manage change, mitigate risk, and resolve financial, legal, operational, political and regulatory, reputational, and transactional disputes. The firm employs more than 4,700 people in 28 countries and generated approximately $2 billion in revenue in 2018.
