Meet Our People

Who better to give you an idea of what working at FTI Consulting is like than the people who already work here?

In Her Own Words — Liz Park

Liz currently is a Managing Director in the Creditor Rights group within the Corporate Finance & Restructuring practice in our New York office.

FTI Consulting was my first job after college. Even though I had majored in mathematics and economics, the firm invested in my professional development by sending me to New York University for additional study in accounting.

Now I am part of the restructuring group and work primarily on bankruptcy cases, dealing with debtors to reorganize and/or liquidate companies to maximize creditor recovery. I really enjoy what I do. No two assignments are ever alike so, as I take on new challenges, I am constantly learning new things.

One of the most important things I’ve learned is how to anticipate our clients’ needs — what they’re interested in seeing, what types of questions they will raise and what kind of results they are expecting. It’s all about taking complex concepts and ideas and packaging them for client consumption without losing vital points.

In His Own Words — Brian Crider

Brian is a Senior Director in the Ringtail Consulting group of the Technology segment in San Francisco.

I joined FTI in 2011 after more than 20 years working for AmLaw 100 firms in the e-discovery and litigation support space. I chose to make my transition to FTI as a service provider because of its reputation in the industry among not only its clients, but also its peers. Joining a new team was seamless because of the collegial and collaborative culture at FTI. Additionally, I have been afforded the opportunity to work on several interesting matters, including in areas of personal interest like pro bono engagements. Finally, FTI encourages autonomy and independent thinking which necessitates career growth.

In His Own Words — David Turner

David is a Senior Managing Director in the Forensic & Litigation Consulting segment in Washington, DC.

Now that I’ve been at FTI for 10 years, I can proudly say that this company has defined my professional career. When the initial core of our practice (Financial and Enterprise Data Analytics) came over here after the breakup of Arthur Andersen, our team was looking to recreate a culture where the people came first and where we had a chance to help clients solve hard problems in a fun environment while focusing on the continuous learning and development of our consultants. I think we’ve done both with great success, and the past 10 years have seen the ~100 members of our group traverse the country and world, dealing with the financial crisis, the influx of fraud and Ponzi schemes, and some of the biggest corporate investigations and litigations in United States history, just to name a few. Of course, there are days when you may not want to get up and go, or deal with a particularly complex issue. However, it is always trumped by the fact that you are coming to work knowing you are going to battle with a group of talented, intelligent, hardworking, dedicated, and funny coworkers and that’s what makes me most proud to be part of this great practice here at FTI.

In His Own Words — Matt Dixon

Matt is a Managing Director within the TMT team of the Strategic Communications segment in London.

My first job after leaving university was as a Research Assistant in the House of Lords. I studied politics for my degree, so it seemed like a logical choice at the time. Running around Parliament, writing speeches, organising briefings… it was a fast paced, hugely varied role which has prepared me well for the job I do now, here at FTI.

My move in to strategic communications – or, more simply, PR as it was back then – was driven by two things. First, I wanted the chance to travel. They say Westminster is like a village – and they’re not wrong. For all of its excitement, it can be quite a closed environment – and I knew there was more to the world than SW1. Since joining FTI in 2006 I’ve worked on projects in Hong Kong, Singapore, Jakarta, major cities in the US – and a whole host of financial centres across Europe. My second motivation was to work somewhere ‘big’. That sounds quite a peculiar item for the wish list, but until I joined FTI I’d only worked in offices of four, maybe five people. Here, it doesn’t matter what corner of the planet you’re in or what problem you’ve been faced with solving, there’ll always be an FTI person somewhere with a guiding hand – or better still, the solution.

Ask anyone at FTI what’s the best aspect to their role, and nine times out of ten you’ll hear “no two days are ever the same.” I agree – today, after eight years, it still holds true. For me, this firm is also somewhere where there’s a real opportunity to progress, no matter your age or background. I joined in 2006 on the bottom rung – today I help to run a team of 19 people working across every kind of client account imaginable.
