WASHINGTON, Sept. 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE:FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that its Strategic Communications segment has launched a new and enhanced Affiliate Network. This more formalized and expanded Affiliate Network will further strengthen FTI Consulting’s ability to deliver global results for clients by extending the geographic coverage of its existing 28 offices to more than 100 additional countries.
“As our clients increasingly look to FTI Strategic Communications for globally integrated counsel, we have explored additional measures to ensure we are able to offer a consistent and best-of-breed combination of Corporate Reputation, Financial Communications and Public Affairs services across our network,” said Edward J. Reilly, Global Chief Executive Officer of the Strategic Communications segment at FTI Consulting. “By investing in an efficient collaboration model designed to champion the highest standards of strategic counsel wherever our clients do business, we exponentially increase the geographic breadth of our offering and, ultimately, the value we deliver.”
The new FTI Strategic Communications Affiliate Network will establish an elite tier of Gold Affiliates – firms that are FTI-endorsed, publicly profiled and contactable through the FTI Consulting website – as well as Silver Affiliates, firms who are required to meet similarly high standards of professional compliance. All members of the Affiliate Network are being provided with anti-corruption training and certification, and will be closely integrated with the firm’s own Strategic Communications teams around the globe.
“The firms we’re unveiling today as our Gold Affiliates have been valued partners of FTI Strategic Communications for years,” said Jon Aarons, Senior Managing Director and Global Head of Network Development in the Strategic Communications segment at FTI Consulting. “What we’re announcing today will only strengthen these existing professional relationships – while increasing transparency for our clients and providing them access to the regional expertise they need in today’s business environment.”
