Peter D. Fitzsimmons rejoined AlixPartners as a managing director. Fitzsimmons has more than 30 years of experience and has worked as a hands-on advisor, an interim C-level executive and, most recently, as a private equity investor. He will be based in AlixPartners’ New York office.

“We are delighted to welcome Peter back to the firm,” Simon Freakley, CEO of AlixPartners, said. “His depth of knowledge of our firm and our global turnaround and restructuring (TRS) practice, blended with his extensive experience in building trusted relationships, will greatly benefit clients during a time of unprecedented global disruption.”

Fitzsimmons began his career at AlixPartners in 1995. During the ensuing 18 years, he worked with companies and their stakeholders to address complex operating and financial challenges, co-founded the firm’s European business, served as president of the North American business, and sat on AlixPartners’ board of directors. Most recently, he was a senior partner with Tower Three Partners, a private equity firm in the New York area.

Fitzsimmons has served as an advisor, CEO, CFO and chief restructuring officer to clients with whom he collaborated in delivering large and complex transformations. Since 2013 he has worked as a private equity investor with companies in the automotive, telecommunications and building products arenas.

“We are thrilled that Peter is returning to AlixPartners’ TRS team,” Lisa Donahue, global joint head of AlixPartners turnaround and restructuring services, said. “He brings deep industry knowledge and experience which will be tremendous assets to our firm and our clients. I am very excited to be working alongside Peter again as we support our clients during this most difficult time for companies and their employees.”

AlixPartners is a global consulting firm.
