FTI expands strategic comms practice in London
FTI Consulting has expanded its strategic communications segment in London with the addition of 15 people from HR and learning development firm JSB.
These professionals will lead FTI’s employee engagement and change communications practice, led by Leslie Benson, its new senior MD in strategic communications.
Benson, JSB CEO and global head of the employee engagement and change communications practice, said: “Our team has worked with FTI Consulting for ten years, and we share an understanding of the important role that people and organisational development plays in the successful execution of business strategy. Our expanded practice will partner with heads of communications, human resources and the C-suite to drive business results by enabling people to perform to their full potential at work.”
Edward Reilly, global chief executive officer of the strategic communications segment at FTI, added: “Whether in the course of normal business operations or during moments of change, challenge or opportunity, such as mergers, corporate restructurings or crises, senior corporate leaders are increasingly focused on ensuring their employees’ actions are aligned with their business objectives. The addition of this team means we can offer our clients a comprehensive range of employee engagement and change communications services delivered seamlessly across the globe.”
