WASHINGTON, March 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE:FCN) today announced that Paul Linton, the firm’s Chief Strategy and Transformation Officer, has been recognized as one of the Most Influential Blacks in Corporate America by Savoy magazine, which recognizes select diverse executives, influencers and achievers who have proactively made a positive impact in Corporate America.
Honorees were selected based upon their professional accomplishments, community achievements and ability to inspire others. A committee of Savoy magazine’s editorial board, community leaders and representatives from the academic and business sectors reviewed more than 500 candidates from industries ranging from banking and finance to healthcare to consulting to identify the final list of professionals.
“I have had the pleasure of working alongside Paul for many years, and I have always admired his commitment to inspiring and delivering high-impact change,” said Steven H. Gunby, President and Chief Executive Officer of FTI Consulting. “As a member of our leadership team, he has done a terrific job collaborating across the organization to help build an extraordinarily bright future for the firm. I join colleagues at FTI Consulting in congratulating Paul on this honor.”
Mr. Linton joined FTI Consulting in 2014 and is a member of the firm’s Executive Committee. In his role, he is responsible for developing FTI Consulting’s overall strategy and transformation agenda, and supporting its five business segments and geographic regions in developing, refining and driving their near-term and medium-term strategic agendas. Mr. Linton is also responsible for FTI Consulting’s global Real Estate function, which has been transformed under his leadership to better support the various ways the firm’s professionals work while reducing cost.
Prior to joining FTI Consulting, Mr. Linton was a Partner and Managing Director at The Boston Consulting Group (“BCG”). During his tenure with BCG, he gained deep operations, organization and large-scale transformation experience by working closely with the executive management teams of numerous corporations. He also led professional recruiting for BCG’s Washington, D.C., office, where he was the first African-American to be promoted to Partner. Mr. Linton leveraged his leadership position to help build and drive BCG’s diversity recruiting and retention efforts in North America.
Commenting on the recognition, Mr. Linton said, “I am honored to be named one of Savoy magazine’s Most Influential Blacks in Corporate America. To me, this is not just a reflection of my contributions, but of the dedication of our professionals at FTI Consulting to leverage our broad capabilities and diversity of thought globally to advise clients on their most complex, high-stakes matters.”
This honor is the second recognition for Mr. Linton in the past year. In October 2017, he was selected for inclusion in Black Enterprise’s Most Powerful Executives in Corporate America feature, an exclusive listing of the highest-ranking African-American executives in the nation’s 1,000 largest publicly traded companies and 100 international companies with significant operations in the United States.
