Mr. Mollo, who is based in Brussels, will help establish the presence of the business transformation team in Belgium, and work closely with business transformation experts across Europe to further the expansion of the firm’s offering across Benelux.

Mr. Mollo brings more than 25 years of experience in business transformation services to FTI Consulting. He has advised investors, boards and management teams on complex transformation programmes, including transactions support, operational turnarounds, EBIDTA improvement plans, operating model redesign and organisational simplifications. Mr. Mollo’s experience also includes developing post-merger integration strategies and carve-outs designed to optimise value and performance. He has worked with Belgian and international businesses across a variety of sectors, including consumer and retail, food and beverage, industrials, public transport, security services and aerospace.
Prior to joining FTI Consulting, Mr. Mollo worked at Alvarez & Marsal in London and in the Benelux region. He also held senior roles at Monitor Deloitte, where he worked for 15 years, and was the EMEA client service partner for Cargill.
“Jean-Michel brings a wealth of experience to the firm, and he will partner well with our dedicated team of turnaround, transformation and transactions experts to support local and international clients operating across Benelux,” said Klaas Wagenaar, Chairman of Corporate Finance & Restructuring in the Benelux region.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr. Mollo said, “FTI Consulting has a strong reputation in the market. Being able to join a firm with such a breadth of professional service capabilities made the firm a natural fit for me. I look forward to working with my new colleagues to extend the breadth and depth of our advisory services to clients in the Benelux market.”
