Appointed a Managing Director in the Financial Restructuring practice of Alvarez & Marsal, Christian Ebner has been tasked with expanding the firm’s financial restructuring and debt advisory footprint in the German and Italian markets.

His experience aligns with our operational heritage and furthers our ability to advise clients on a local and pan-European level,” said Paul Kirkbright, Head of EMEA Financial Restructuring Advisory at Alvarez & Marsal.

Commenting on his new challenge, German-origin Ebner said, “Alvarez & Marsal’s position as a restructuring leader that delivers results, is free from audit conflicts and maximises value. This positioning provides a strong foundation for offering our clients an integrated platform. I look forward to the coming period.”
