FTI Consulting has bolstered its Corporate Finance & Restructuring practice in the UK with the addition of John Maloney. The experienced consultant previously served among others AlixPartenrs, A.T. Kearney and Atos Consulting.
John Maloney has more than 25 years' industry and consulting experience in strategy and operations improvement across a wide range of industry sectors, and has worked on diverse projects in Europe, the U.S., Africa and Asia. He joins the management consultancy from counterpart AlixPartners, where he led the Organisation Design and Efficiency practice and was Co-Leader of the Life Science practice in Europe. Prior to spell at AlixPartners, Maloney worked for A.T. Kearney, based in London, and KPMG Consulting (which later became Atos Consulting*). Before this he was Finance Manager for Unisys Europe. Maloney started his career in 1987 in Corporate Banking with Midland Bank.
After nine years with AlixPartners, Maloney earlier this month decided to embark on a new adventure, and joined rival FTI Consulting as a Partner and Senior Managing Director. At the firm he leads the UK Operations Transformation Team, focusing on Private Equity Due Diligence and Portfolio Work across multiple sectors, encompassing the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
Commenting on the appointment, Kevin Hewitt, Co-Chairman of FTI Consulting's EMEA region and Head of the EMEA Corporate Finance & Restructuring practice, says he is “delighted to have recruited a leader of the calibre of John”, a move which will enable the firm to continue providing FTI’s clients with a “full range of multi-disciplinary services to support their growth agendas”.
In 2007 Hewitt– together with among others former EY partners Paul Inglis and David Morris – stood at the basis of FTI’s launch in Europe. Prior to joining the global advisory firm, Hewitt spent nine years as a restructuring partner at EY.
* In 2002 KPMG Consulting was in the UK and the Netherlands acquired by Atos for a reported fee of €657 million. As part of the integration, KPMG Consulting was rebranded as Atos Consulting.
