HONG KONG, April 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced the appointment of Christopher Marks as a Senior Managing Director in the Technology segment, continuing to enhance the firm’s position as a leading provider of consulting and services that span the entire discovery process.

Mr. Marks, who will be based in Hong Kong, will help grow FTI Technology’s e-discovery capabilities across Asia. He joins from EY, where he led that firm’s e-discovery service in Greater China.

“Chris brings a wealth of hands-on, complex project management experience that will significantly enhance our e-discovery offerings in Greater China and across Asia,” said John Batchelor, Co-Lead of Asia at FTI Consulting. “His leadership will enable FTI Consulting to better serve our clients facing cross-border investigations, litigation and other critical issues.”

Sophie Ross, Global Chief Executive Officer of FTI Technology, added, “Organizations continue to feel pressures when it comes to e-discovery matters, particularly as the amount of data they manage grows and business is increasingly conducted across borders. We continue to seek opportunities to invest in adding leading professionals in key geographies such as Asia, and we are excited to welcome Chris and look forward to working with him as we help our clients address their most complex issues.”

Mr. Marks brings more than 20 years of accountancy experience and has more than 15 years of experience in digital investigations, with close involvement and oversight of complex cross-border litigation support, digital forensics, legal document review and FCPA investigations.

As a global independent advisory firm with a deep bench of talent, FTI Consulting is well-positioned to assist multinational companies and businesses in Asia as they navigate the complexities of e-discovery and data review.”
