WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced the appointment of Tilden Katz as Managing Director in the company's Strategic Communications segment. Mr. Katz will be based in Chicago.

As a former litigation attorney, Mr. Katz brings specialized expertise in litigation communications, having counseled both plaintiffs and defendants in high-profile antitrust, labor and employment, manufacturing, medical malpractice, toxic tort, white collar criminal defense and zoning law cases. He brings more than 20 years of experience in CEO communications, crisis and issues management, media relations and reputation management.

"Given the complexities of global operations, the rise of public interest voices, the multiple forums for making these voices heard and the growing number of activist regulatory bodies, clients are increasingly looking to FTI Consulting to help guide them through crises or issues," said Edward Reilly, Global CEO of the Strategic Communications segment at FTI Consulting. " Tilden's addition further differentiates our firm's highly regarded crisis and issues management service offering and represents our commitment to providing unparalleled communications counsel to help our clients protect their enterprise value and reputation."

Prior to joining FTI Consulting, Mr. Katz served as a Senior Vice President at APCO Worldwide and was the Managing Director of its Chicago office. He also worked as a corporate spokesperson for varied clients and as an attorney at Seyfarth Shaw LLP, a top-ranked international law firm. In his former roles, he designed and executed crisis, litigation and media relations communications programs for market-leading companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, OfficeMax, Redflex Traffic Systems, United Airlines and Walgreens.

"I'm excited to join FTI Consulting, a firm with wide-ranging crisis and issues management services that encompass experts from both its Forensic & Litigation Consulting and Strategic Communications segments," said Mr. Katz. "FTI Consulting is uniquely suited to help companies anticipate the probability of a crisis or issue actually happening and provides the expertise, resources and infrastructure to help them manage through it."
