WASHINGTON, Jan. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced that Anthony Saitta has joined its Real Estate Solutions industry group as a Managing Director and will lead the Executive Compensation & Corporate Governance practice.
“Anthony’s leadership, experience and expertise in the real estate and real estate finance industries, combined with his background advising clients on accounting and tax-related matters related to initial public offerings and other matters before the Securities and Exchange Commission, allow him to bring a unique perspective to equity and mortgage REITs and to private equity-sponsored companies in developing and advising on executive compensation strategies,” said Ingrid Noone, a Senior Managing Director in the Real Estate Solutions practice at FTI Consulting. “Foundational to FTI Consulting’s Executive Compensation & Corporate Governance practice is our ability to provide value-added critical thinking around business and compensation planning beyond data gathering and industry surveys. Anthony’s diverse background meaningfully strengthens those capabilities.”
With more than 15 years of executive compensation and corporate governance experience, including 11 years in this capacity at FTI Consulting, Mr. Saitta rejoins the firm from FPL Associates, L.P., where he was a Managing Director in its New York office.

Specifically, Mr. Saitta served as the lead advisor on client assignments, presenting recommendations to boards of directors and senior executive management, as well as leading the implementation of adopted recommendations. He also was responsible for the strategic design of new compensation programs for senior executive management teams, including leading the negotiation of employment agreement terms and conditions on behalf of both the executives and boards of directors.
Bruce S. Schonbraun, a Senior Managing Director and Co-Leader of FTI Consulting’s Real Estate Solutions industry group, said, “We could not be more pleased that Anthony has rejoined our team, which is testament to FTI Consulting’s commitment to and leadership position within the executive compensation consulting industry.
