FTI Consulting, Inc. announced the appointment of Matthew Cowell as a Senior Managing Director to lead the Human Capital offering in the firm’s Business Transformation practice, continuing its investment in transformative services and enhancing its ability to help corporations address the people side of change.
Cowell, who will be based in Chicago, has more than 20 years of experience and will lead efforts to assist clients with pre-transaction and financial human resource (“HR”) due diligence, as well as integration or establishment of the HR function during the post-sign process. He will focus on all key HR-related areas throughout the deal lifecycle, including Day 1 readiness; employee transition and communications; HR target operating model; payroll/HRIS systems; retention, severance, compensation and benefit programs; and employment, change in control, collective bargaining, transition service and purchase and sale agreements.
“Human capital is often a potential deal-breaking component of any transaction or transformation,” said Carlyn Taylor, Leader of the Business Transformation practice at FTI Consulting. “With the addition of Matt to our team, we have expanded our client delivery capabilities for HR areas and continue our investment in offerings to help businesses navigate change and position themselves to realize their full potential,”
Cowell previously was with KPMG LLP in Chicago, where he was a Partner and led the national HR Transaction Services (“HRTS”) practice within the firm’s Deal Advisory practice. Before joining KPMG, he was a member of the HRTS practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers from 2002-2014.
“As an independent non-audit advisory firm, FTI Consulting is able to provide a full suite of services for clients seeking independent advice and assistance with significant change events,” Mr. Cowell said. “The opportunity to join FTI Consulting’s growing team of talented business transformation experts and to help further round out the overall offering is exciting, and I look forward to working with them to help deliver innovative solutions to clients worldwide.”
