December 08, 2023, 07:25 AM

Alvarez & Marsal announced the appointment of Los Angeles-based Arthur Mattousch as a Managing Director in its Private Equity Performance Improvement Group (PEPI). Mattousch's hire underscores A&M's continuous effort to enhance its strategic capabilities, industry knowledge, and global talent base to maximize value and drive change for clients.  
Drawing on three decades of performance improvement and advisory experience, Mattousch specializes in guiding operational excellence and value creation for private equity (PE) portfolio clients. Consistent with management’s shift from scenario planning to building operational depth, Mattousch brings a multi-dimensional, holistic approach to optimizing procurement value creation.  
Mattousch, leverages his deep understanding of strategic sourcing and procurement with his broader supply chain expertise, to advise PE sponsors and corporate executives across a spectrum of industries, including automotive, consumer goods, industrial products, manufacturing, retail and life sciences. He has served in multiple interim integration and transformation management roles for PE portfolio companies. Additionally, he is noted for developing and executing practical value creation solutions to realize EBITDA improvement, resiliency, and sustainable competitive performance.
Christopher Kulp, a PEPI Managing Director, and leader of A&M’s Procurement and Sourcing group, said, “Recent events and anticipated 2024 economic uncertainty highlight the need to balance supplier recovery, inflation management and procurement retooling amidst an increasingly volatile market. Arthur’s joining augments our ability to maximize value for the business by leveraging procurement’s full potential in partnership with supply chain management, product development, sales and manufacturing. His appointment represents the next phase of PEPI’s talent growth strategy aligned with addressing clients’ supply chain and procurement management changes concurrent with demand for rapid scale and continued growth.”
Prior to joining A&M, Mattousch served as a leader in the operations practices at Kearney, SGS Maine Pointe and Efficio Consulting where he played a key role in developing and growing the private equity teams.
Mattousch noted, “As the impact of procurement outcomes expands beyond the chief operating officer (COO) and chief procurement officer (CPO) to the chief financial officer (CFO) and chief executive officer (CEO), we anticipate comprehensive operational challenges and opportunities across the PE landscape. Linking supply chain issues to the integration of procurement firm-wide alongside optimizing procurement/supply chain capabilities and tools, organizational structure, and human capital will be critical to value creation. A&M’s integrated platform provides a solid foundation for solving clients’ strategic sourcing and procurement challenges.”
Mattousch earned a master’s degree in aerospace engineering from Delft University of Technology and an MBA from the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley.
