Global business advisory firm FTI Consulting has appointed senior managing director Scott Bingham as head of the firm’s US transactions practice. The move reiterates FTI Consulting’s commitment to offering services throughout the full lifecycle of a deal. 

The transactions practice streamlines services from FTI Consulting’s corporate finance and restructuring segment. The practice is set to be a “center of excellence” suitable for clients in all industries, at any stage of a transaction or deal.

“Our strategy within the corporate finance and restructuring segment is organized around our restructuring, business transformation, and transactions capabilities, with a distinct focus on industry specializations,” Carlyn Taylor, FTI Consulting’s global co-leader of the corporate finance and restructuring segment, said. “We are proud to elevate Scott to his new leadership role. His energy, teaming mindset and commitment to delivering industry-focused transaction solutions is aligned with our vision for the Transaction offering now and into the future — driving value creation for clients before, during and long after deals are completed.”FTI Consulting appoints new transactions practice leader

FTI Consulting’s transactions offering is aimed at being “seamless” and “one-stop,” with clients benefiting from services such as pre- and post-deal strategy; valuation; commercial, operational, and financial diligence; merger integration; and business transformation.

“Our clients require end-to-end solutions that anticipate their most critical pre- and post-deal concerns,” Bingham said. “Leading with senior financial and operational industry experts, we are uniquely positioned to bring hands-on, sector-specific insights to our matters, so what’s most important to our clients’ success is at the core of what we deliver.”

Bingham’s leadership appointment closely follows those of Yvonne Gyimah and John Stiffler, who as of December 2019 are senior managing directors at the firm. Gyimah focuses on carve-outs, leveraging her experience deal strategy, management, and implementation, and “Day 1” readiness planning. Stiffler, meanwhile, focuses on technology transformation in areas such as IT transformation, business intelligence, and post-transaction merger integration. Both appointments further cement FTI Consulting’s commitment to its “end-to-end” transactions services offering.

FTI Consulting employs more than 4,700 people in 28 countries. It assists organizations in change management, risk mitigation, and dispute resolution. In fiscal 2018, it reported more than $2 billion in revenue.
