Energy-industry expert Vance Scott has joined AlixPartners as a managing director and one of the key leaders in the firm’s global Energy and Process Industries practice. He will work from AlixPartners’ Houston office.

Scott brings more than three decades of international oil and gas industry experience, advising on capital planning, merger due diligence and integration, restructuring, capital optimization, and growth strategies. In addition to North America, he has worked in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Egypt, Australia, Brazil, Columbia, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Russia, India, and several Eastern European and African nations.

He joins AlixPartners from consulting firm EY-Parthenon Group, where he was a senior managing director leading that firm’s global oil and gas practice as well as the Americas oil and gas leader for its transaction advisory services practice. Prior to joining EY in 2015, he spent two decades at consulting firm A.T. Kearney, where most recently he was committee chair of the finance and audit board and a global energy practice leader focusing on the hydrocarbon and process industry sectors, including exploration and production, refining, petrochemicals, mining, and metals. Earlier in his career, he spent approximately four years as an asset-acquisitions manager at Western Mining and three years as a petroleum engineer at energy giant Chevron.

“Vance’s deep experience in leading complex transformational engagements, including in the M&A space, is a perfect match with AlixPartners’ core value proposition,” saidSimon Freakley, CEO of AlixPartners.
