Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) has expanded its Public Sector Services practice with the addition of Michael Carrasco as Managing Director in Houston, and Jay Nagy as Senior Director in New York. Their appointments demonstrate A&M’s strong commitment to assist local, state and federal agencies and their private sector partners cope with increasing costs and enhance services for their constituents and stakeholders.
Mr. Carrasco’s expertise in information technology, legal and international affairs, and revenue growth will enhance A&M’s capabilities to address federal, state and local agencies’ complex needs. His record of achieving transformation through the adoption of technology and experience working for the government and private sector will be leveraged to help A&M’s clients improve the quality and efficiency of the services they provide.

Mr. Nagy, who has an extensive background in the healthcare sector and in corporate finance and strategy, will utilize his skills and experience to grow A&M’s services that support states’ implementation of managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) programs. His expertise in formulating strategy, leading product development and implementing technology for healthcare and human services providers will help clients navigate current and emerging market challenges.

“Governments and their managed care partners are coping with unparalleled challenges in handling rising costs and evolving market dynamics. The combination of A&M’s operational heritage, foresight and response to market demands allows us to help clients address challenges and adapt to change,” said Erin Covington, Managing Director and co-leader of the firm’s Public Sector practice.
