HONG KONG, March 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE:FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organisations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced the appointment of Will Inglis as Senior Managing Director and Leader of the firm's Economic Consulting segment in Asia Pacific. Mr. Inglis will be based in Singapore.
Mr. Inglis has more than 25 years of experience in forensic accounting, dispute advisory and international arbitration. He joins FTI Consulting from Deloitte, where he served as a Partner in the Forensic and Dispute Services practice and the European lead Partner of the International Arbitration group.
"Will is a well-respected leader in the international arbitration and dispute advisory sectors, and he brings with him invaluable experience and expertise in helping law firms, corporations and government agencies who have faced complex disputes all across the globe," said Rod Sutton, Chairman of the Asia Pacific region of FTI Consulting. "His appointment will enhance our offering in dispute resolution and international arbitration, both areas in which the firm continues to invest."
Throughout his career, Mr. Inglis has undertaken a wide variety of large expert witness assignments, and has acted as an arbitrator and expert determiner in a number of contentious cases — providing oral evidence in the UK, the U.S., Continental Europe and Australia. He has also acted as an accounting expert to two panels of commissioners of the United Nations Compensation Commission and in cases before the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal. He has also acted in both administered and ad hoc arbitrations and High Court litigation.
In Asia Pacific, FTI Consulting has seen a steady rise in both the volume and scale of complex disputes as emerging economies in the region mature, while cross-border investment continues to grow. As such, Mr. Inglis' appointment as Leader of the firm's Economic Consulting segment in Asia Pacific will focus on serving these growing market demands by providing clients with sound and reliable business valuation and expert testimony services.
Mr. Inglis assumes this responsibility as James Searby, who launched FTI Consulting's International Arbitration offering in Asia Pacific in 2011, relocates to the firm's Washington, D.C. office to further build upon the firm's International Arbitration offering in North America.
Commenting on today's announcement, Mr. Searby said, "Given Will's rich and extensive experience serving a global client base in contentious matters, I am confident that he ― along with the rest of our team, who will remain in place ― will be able to deliver on the growing demand we are experiencing from both local and inbound investors in the Asia Pacific region."
