Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) has augmented its business transformation expertise with the hire of oil and gas expert, Matson Blocker, as a Houston-based Managing Director in the Performance Improvement practice. Blocker focuses on IT strategic planning, global program management, and operations improvement for downstream and chemicals organizations.
