Axton has more than 30 years of experience in strategic, financial and transaction advisory and has held number of executive management positions. She has industry experience in healthcare, technology, financial institutions, business services, manufacturing and distribution. Before joining FTI Consulting, she served as chief financial officer of Neighbors Health.
Last year, FTI Consulting added senior managing directors Chad Shandler and Clifford Zucker and managing directors Kevin DeLuise and Narendra Ganti, to its Healthcare Restructuring Services group. Axton will work closely with this team.
We observe that shares of FTI Consulting have gained 36.6% year to date, outperforming the 30.2% rally of the industry it belongs to.
The appointment appears to be a part of FTI Consulting’s efforts to enhance its employee skill set and improve offerings. It makes sense as structural change has become a necessity in the rapidly evolving global markets and management teams look to fend off rivals, protect intellectual property rights and transform businesses via M&A, divestiture and other restructuring activities.
These developments call for FTI Consulting’s specialized skill sets and are likely to boost revenues.
