FTI Consulting appointed Matt Callaghan a senior managing director in the firm’s corporate finance and restructuring segment in London, where he will lead the UK mid-market and insolvency offering.

Callaghan joined FTI Consulting following a 17-year career with PwC, where he led restructuring and insolvency cases. Having been based in both Leeds and London, he has worked with mid-market businesses and their stakeholders, including financial institutions, UK government and corporates.

As a licensed insolvency practitioner with knowledge of both advisory and executory assignments, Callaghan will enhance FTI Consulting’s reputation as an award-winning restructuring firm, as FTI was named Corporate Restructuring Firm of the Year (4-10 licensed appointment-taking insolvency practitioners category) at the Turnaround, Restructuring & Insolvency Awards 2019.
