Performance transformation expert David Hutchinson has returned to AlixPartners as a Managing Director. Arriving in the firm’s London office, he re-joins AlixPartners having previously been a Managing Director with the firm for 13 years.

Mark Veldon, UK Co-Head at AlixPartners, said of the news, “David’s substantial expertise in operational transformation and extensive experience in building trusted relationships will greatly benefit our clients during this period of global disruption, and we are delighted to welcome him back to the firm.”

2022 is set to be a challenging year for UK companies, as they face down rising inflation, labour shortages and supply chain issues. In this context, with the continuing high levels of M&A activity across Europe, investors will have even more pressure to transform operations quickly to maximise the returns they can expect further down the line. There will subsequently be heightened demand for external advisors with experience supporting private equity turnarounds.

Over the course of his career, Hutchinson has worked with companies and private equity houses to deliver many complex transformations and turnarounds, as well as providing end-to-end transaction support, covering Due Diligence, carve-outs, Value Creation and Post-Merger Integrations.

He also spent six years as a Principal at Kearney, earlier in his working life.
