Subscription Economy Pioneer Peter Doucette Joins FTI Consulting
Washington, D.C., July 17, 2018 — FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced the appointment of Peter Doucette as a Managing Director in the Publishing group of the Telecommunications, Media & Technology (“TMT”) practice, continuing the firm’s investment in its Business Transformation offering and bringing more than 20 years of business transformation expertise to subscription-based organizations. He specializes in identifying, developing and enabling strategies for the subscriber economy, which impacts a wide range of industries, including publishing, retail, media and entertainment and technology. He will be based in Boston.
Mr. Doucette joins FTI Consulting from The Boston Globe, where he served as Chief Consumer Revenue Officer and was responsible for all revenue growth, P&L management, digital integration, product strategy, subscription sales and consumer experience. At the Globe, he developed a new business model for media companies that included an industry-leading paid subscription model and dual-website strategy.
“Pete is a leader in audience development, building an industry-leading digital subscriber model,” said Ken Harding, Global Practice Leader of the Publishing group within the TMT practice at FTI Consulting. “Newspapers and magazines continue to face the challenges of digital disruption, and Pete’s experiences at The Boston Globe will be a significant asset to our clients as they seek innovative ways to improve revenue contribution from consumers as media shifts away from an advertising-dominant business model.”
At FTI Consulting, Mr. Doucette will work with newspaper and magazine publishers, as well as other organizations with subscriber-based business models, to accelerate the consumer monetization journey and develop appropriate digital strategies.
“I spent the past decade at the Globe helping solve the challenges of sustainability for local journalism,” Mr. Doucette said. “I am excited to take that experience and work alongside the team at FTI Consulting, with its breadth and depth of industry expertise, to help clients develop a model for future business sustainability.”
