Brydges has worked with clients to understand and improve their technology capabilities, increase efficiency and scalability, reduce IT risk and enable transformation of critical business processes and capabilities to support organizational objectives. He has experience in acquisition, integration and business transformation efforts, as well as divestiture/carve-out activities.

Prior to FTI Consulting, Brydges served as chief information officer and chief technology officer for a defense contractor, where he was responsible for infrastructure transformation and data center migration, the movement of the company’s corporate headquarters into a new facility and improvement of business application capabilities to support offerings in a highly regulated environment. Brydges was responsible for both internal IT capabilities and the overall delivery of the company’s services to the federal sector.

“Technology touches upon every aspect of the modern business,” Brydges said. “In today’s environment, technology is proving especially critical as an enabler of business performance. Choosing the right platforms and building secure and flexible infrastructure to deploy them rapidly is particularly critical. I look forward to working with the team at FTI Consulting to help clients transform their operations and drive growth.”
