Over the last 30 years, FTI Consulting has grown to become a market-leading global consulting firm by serving as a trusted advisor to our clients in both good and bad times. From headline grabbing engagements, including the Bernie Madoff investigation, the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, the Bush vs. Gore dispute, the Major League Baseball Steroid case, and many more, our people have played a role in matters that have shaped history.
I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to serve as FTI Consulting’s next President and Chief Executive Officer and I am proud to be part of this organization – one with a rich history of collaborating with clients to make a fundamental difference in their businesses. I also want to underscore just how convinced I am of the strength of our platform and the many opportunities ahead to leverage our capabilities to accelerate growth and enhance stockholder returns.
Though I have only been in this role for a short time, I have been energized by the expertise and passion within this organization. The power of our market-leading businesses and the dedication of our professionals, together with the capabilities and global reach at FTI Consulting, is something we can work with.
There are, of course, areas for improvement in every business, and no business can stand still; those points are true for us as well. There’s obviously much work to be done to realize your aspirations for this company, as well as my own.
In the coming months, I hope to meet many of you to hear your views and share my perspectives and enthusiasm about FTI Consulting’s next generation of success. Additionally, we will host an investor day in New York City in June that will provide you with an opportunity to gain more insight into the drivers of FTI Consulting’s business and our plans for harnessing future opportunities as well as meet the team that will drive this transition.
We have tremendous potential ahead and the FTI Consulting team and I are focused on taking this company forward in a meaningful way. I want to thank you for your continued support and I look forward to working with you.
Steven H. Gunby
President & Chief Executive Officer of FTI Consulting, Inc.
