Alvarez & Marsal Hires Former FDIC Official in Financial Industry Advisory Group

July 31, 2014, 07:53 AM

Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) has continued the expansion of its Financial Industry Advisory Services group with the addition of Thomas Dujenski, a Managing Director based in Atlanta.

A former regional director with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Dujenski has more than 30 years of experience in the financial services industry.  In the wake of the financial crisis, he played a key role in helping numerous troubled banks navigate myriad complex challenges.  

Dujenski is one of many prominent industry veterans to join the A&M Financial Industry Advisory Services group. The firm recently announced that Bruce Stevenson, former Senior Vice President of HSBC North America Holdings, joined the firm to focus on building its Quantitative Advisory Services practice, which is dedicated to employing advanced mathematics and analytics to help clients solve business issues and minimize risk against the backdrop of evolving industry regulations.

“Financial institutions continue to face considerable headwinds – from the overall economy, to mounting regulations to increased competition,” said Samuel Golden, Co-CEO of Alvarez & Marsal’s Financial Industry Advisory Services group. “Having managed first-hand much of the fallout from the recent economic crisis, Tom’s background and expertise further strengthens our capabilities in helping financial institutions strengthen their balance sheets, improve performance and grow strategically.” 

While at the FDIC, Dujenski supervised nearly 1,000 financial institutions in seven states with assets totaling over $1 trillion, leading a staff of over 600 employees. He oversaw programs for risk management, compliance, CRA, fair lending, information technology, capital markets, trust, fraud, bank secrecy act, accounting, and loss share.

He has extensive knowledge of bank regulation, strategic planning, program management and business performance improvement. His experience includes troubled bank remediation and regulatory relations, enterprise risk management, regulatory compliance risk management, and regulatory due diligence and post-acquisition regulatory support.

He has also worked with some of the largest technology service providers in the U.S., handling numerous compliance issues, including fair lending and unfair and deceptive practices.

Dujenski often appears before Congressional bodies in matters involving regulatory and bank supervision, and testifies in sentencing and administrative hearings on behalf of the FDIC and the Department of Justice. He has represented the FDIC at numerous media and outreach events across the globe, as well as on subcommittees of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and the Financial Stability Institute.

He is a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS), a Certified Forensic Interviewer (CFI), and a Certified Regulatory Compliance Manager (CRCM).

Dujenski earned a B.S. in finance from State University of New York (Fredonia) and an MBA from St. Bonaventure University. He graduated with distinction from Stonier Graduate School of Banking, University of Delaware. He also graduated from the Federal Executive Institute and the Senior Managers in Government program, Harvard University, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Executive Education.
