FTI Consulting appointed Miriam Wrobel as global leader of the firm’s growing ESG and sustainability offering.

Wrobel, a senior managing director based in San Francisco, joined FTI Consulting in 2021 and advises clients on ESG and energy transition strategy, transaction structuring and due diligence. She will lead a diversified team of professionals across FTI Consulting’s global network who work on ESG and sustainability-related matters.

“ESG and sustainability-driven demands are dynamic and evolving. As a trusted advisor to the world’s leading law firms, corporations, financial institutions and private equity firms, FTI Consulting is called upon to help clients manage risk and opportunities,” Steven H. Gunby, president and CEO of FTI Consulting, said. “Miriam and our expert-led team will bring the full scope of our differentiated offering to clients to support them across their ESG programs.”

Companies face increasing pressure from multiple stakeholders, including employees, customers, shareholders and the communities in which they do business, on ESG and sustainability-related issues. According to the January 2022 FTI Consulting Resilience Barometer survey of more than 2,000 large companies across the G-20, 66% of respondents said they do not have sufficient ESG or sustainability expertise to cope with increasing scrutiny, which will continue as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and regulators in other countries explore possible climate-related disclosure requirements.

“Robust ESG programs help companies identify and mitigate risks, seize opportunities and engage key stakeholders, driving profitability while helping businesses evolve. Strategic ESG investments make good business sense and are the right thing to do,” Wrobel said. “I am excited to help bring the full depth of our expertise to help organizations across the globe enhance their efforts and serve the interests of all stakeholders.”
