Former Congressman Robert "Bud" Cramer, Jr., Joins FTI Consulting

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 27, 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 Robert "Bud" Cramer, Jr., as Managing Director in the firm's Strategic Communications segment. Mr. Cramer joins the segment's Public Affairs practice, serving as part of the Government Affairs specialty team (formerly C2 Group). He will be based in Washington, D.C.

Mr. Cramer brings deep expertise in advocacy, community relations, government relations and issues management to FTI Consulting. He has worked extensively in the aerospace, defense, financial services and transportation industries. In his new role, he will counsel clients through the legislative, policy and regulatory process, engaging policymakers, regulators and other key stakeholders in and outside of Washington, D.C.

"As made evident through a number of recent policy debates, business executives and corporations are playing a more active role on Capitol Hill," said Edward Reilly, Global Chief Executive Officer of the Strategic Communications segment at FTI Consulting. "Bud's deep understanding of the intersection of market forces and government policy represents FTI Consulting's commitment to helping our clients protect their interests and navigate an increasingly complex public policy process."

Prior to FTI Consulting, Mr. Cramer was Vice Chairman of Capitol Hill Consulting Group and Chairman of Wexler & Walker Public Policy Associates. In these roles, he worked with market-leading companies such as Ball Aerospace & Technologies; the City of Huntsville, Ala.; FLH Company; Northrop Grumman; and Space Systems/Loral.

Before that, Mr. Cramer served as a Congressman, representing Alabama's 5th District in the U.S. House of Representatives, from which he retired in 2008. During his 18 years in Congress, he served on the Appropriations, Science, and Transportation and Infrastructure committees, as well as the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. While on the Intelligence Committee, he was Chairman of the Intelligence Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee; and in 1994, he co-founded and served as Co-chairman of the Blue Dog Coalition, an influential group of conservative Democratic lawmakers.

In 1998, the Minority Leader of the House appointed Mr. Cramer to the Board of Directors of the Open World Program at the Library of Congress. In Congress, he co-chaired the Missile Defense and House Tennessee Valley Authority caucuses and co-founded the Anti-terrorism and the Missing and Exploited Children caucuses.
