FTI Consulting Announces Leadership Transition

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value (the "Company"), today announced Steve Gunby, 56, has been appointed by the Company's Board of Directors to become President and Chief Executive Officer ("CEO"). Mr. Gunby will join the Company and be appointed as a director on January 20, 2014, succeeding Jack Dunn, who will leave his positions as an executive officer and director after 21 years of service with the Company. The selection of Mr. Gunby culminates the CEO succession planning process instituted earlier this year by the Board of Directors.

Mr. Gunby brings more than 30 years of strategic, operational and performance improvement experience in global management consulting to multi-national corporations. He has deep expertise in building long-term client relationships and growing a highly regarded consulting firm. Mr. Gunby joins the Company from The Boston Consulting Group, Inc. ("BCG"), where he has been employed since 1983, and has been a senior partner and managing director since 1993. He leads BCG's global Transformation and Large Scale Change Practice. Previously he led BCG's operations in the Americas.

"After careful consideration, the Board determined the succession planning process provided an opportunity to infuse fresh perspective and complementary experience in order to move FTI Consulting into its next stage of growth," said Gerard E. Holthaus, the Company's Presiding Director. "We believe Steve's extensive consulting industry experience, his understanding of the opportunities and challenges of a global consulting brand and his success in leading growth and profitability initiatives represent a good combination of capability and track record from which to lead the Company into its next phase."

Mr. Gunby has served on BCG's Executive and Operating Committees during a period where BCG greatly increased its global footprint, including major expansions into China and India. The term of his leadership from 2003-2009 began an era of historic success for BCG's Americas business, which saw significant revenue growth, tripling of profitability and improved employee morale. Mr. Gunby has led or been actively involved in generating some of the firm's largest and most significant client relationships.

"I greatly admire what Jack and Dennis, two true pioneers in the consulting business, and the FTI Consulting team have achieved over the past 21 years. I am privileged to have been entrusted with this role and to be joining such an incredibly accomplished group of professionals," said Mr. Gunby. "More important, I am excited. FTI Consulting has tremendous global opportunities ahead and I look forward to working closely with the executive management team and with all of FTI Consulting's professionals to build on the solid growth strategy in place and further enhance opportunities for employees, the quality and value delivered to clients, and, as a result, the returns achieved for stockholders."
