Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) announced the appointment of Lawrence Ferrara as a Senior Director and Global Chief Learning Officer in its Global Transaction Advisory Group (TAG). Mr. Ferrara’s joining demonstrates Global TAG’s commitment to investing in its people, regardless of market conditions, and aligning its global network of relationship-driven trusted advisors with its integrated approach to serving clients worldwide.
Ferrara leads organizations through the talent development strategy and operations lifecycle. His in-depth learning and design, technology, and business expertise informs the leading-edge workforce transformation strategies, aligning talent and business, across functions, business units, and the enterprise.
Ferrara’s hiring further connects Global TAG’s talent growth strategy to its expanding geographic footprint most recently in Australia, Canada, and China. His appointment helps promote shared learning and development (L&D) best practices with the private equity (PE) community and builds upon the recent hire of Managing Director Vivian Santora, who focuses on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Inclusive Diversity-related matters .
Paul Aversano, Managing Director and Global Leader of Global TAG, stated, “Market conditions don’t dictate the pace of our hiring or the investments in our people. Lawrence’s joining further supports our commitment to successfully onboard and integrate all Global TAG new hires, as we continually improve our market leading retention and recruitment efforts. His appointment ensures our existing and future L&D programs reflect our global approach and enhance our ability to maximize value for clients.”

Ferrara has defined and delivered talent development vision and strategy for consumer markets, industrial products, and services sectors. Additionally, he designed a firm-wide digital upskilling learning experience focused on emerging technologies, data, and automation that culminated in a digital credential offered both externally and internally.
Prior to joining A&M, Ferrara spent 17 years with Learning & Development at PwC in New York, serving most recently as Learning Strategy Leader for the Deals and Cybersecurity, Risk, and Regulatory platforms in Consulting. Previously, Ferrara was the Chief Learning Officer for ProEdge, PwC’s commercial upskilling and citizen-led innovation platform focused on leading-edge workforce transformation.
Ferrara said, “Global TAG is dedicated to helping practitioners achieve their growth goals, and to building a world class, market leading global L&D program. We believe it is our role to continue to grow and support our people to help them achieve their own personal and professional objectives. Global TAG’s emphasis on aligning talent and business strategies dovetails with my philosophy that learning and development drive productivity improvement and leading-edge workforce transformation.”
