FTI Consulting appoints Senior Adviser
FTI Consulting has appointed Tim Hames as a full-time Senior Adviser to its Strategic Communications segment in London. Hames will assume his new role on 2 December 2019.
Hames will join FTI Consulting from the British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (BVCA), where he has served as Director General since 2013. Hames previously held a variety of other roles at the BVCA, including Head of Policy and Director of Public Affairs. He has also been a Special Adviser to the Speaker of the House of Commons, Assistant Editor and Leader Writer at The Times and a Lecturer in Politics at Oxford University.
In his role at FTI Consulting, Hames will work with colleagues across the firm to provide clients with strategic advice and advocacy on issues impacting their businesses, with a focus on the private equity/venture capital industry and its portfolio companies.
John Waples, UK Head of FTI Consulting’s Strategic Communications practice, says: “Tim’s areas of expertise will be valuable to our clients at a time when the private equity industry is facing increased political and regulatory scrutiny. I look forward to working with him as we continue to develop our offer to private equity and the broader financial services sector.”
Hames says: “The past decade has seen a transformation in the relationship between financial services and public affairs. The 10 years to come may well be even more disruptive. It is a pleasure to be joining a leading global consultancy firm that bridges these two vital spheres at such an important and intriguing time.”
