Wall Street Business News

WASHINGTON, Feb. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced the appointment of Todd Rahn as a Senior Managing Director within the firm’s Forensic & Litigation Consulting segment and the launch of its SEC & Accounting Advisory Services practice in the Bay Area, which Mr. Rahn will lead out of San Francisco. The addition of Mr. Rahn is part of FTI Consulting’s continued expansion of the practice, which assists clients in addressing the increasing complexity of accounting and SEC rules and regulations.

Mr. Rahn, who joins FTI Consulting from Deloitte, brings more than 22 years of audit, accounting and advisory experience with a concentration in the technology, media and telecommunications industry, as well as experience within energy, consumer and retail industries. Mr. Rahn will advise corporate clients on a variety of accounting advisory matters, including the structure, impact and disclosure of transactions, addressing SEC regulations and investigations, financial restatements, accounting litigation and disputes, adopting new accounting standards, and responding to auditor requests.

“Todd is a seasoned executive with extensive experience creating world-class teams to provide a timely, streamlined approach to client service and issue resolution,” said Edward Westerman, Co-Leader of the Forensic Accounting & Advisory Services practice at FTI Consulting. “With his unique and diverse background serving multinational organizations of differing sizes in various industries, he will deepen our ability as an independent global business advisory firm to help our clients navigate complex accounting and regulatory issues.”

While at Deloitte, Mr. Rahn provided advice to board members and management teams on how to plan for and resolve complex accounting matters, particularly those related to SEC reporting. He assisted clients with initial and secondary public and private offerings, acquisitions, carve-outs and cross-border transactions. Mr. Rahn also served a term in Deloitte’s U.S. National Office as a Clearing Partner in the risk management function for the audit practice and was the Partner Sponsor of Deloitte’s San Francisco Inclusion Council.

“Particularly with the rapid expansion of enterprises in the Bay Area, there is a need for the services that an independent firm with deep technical expertise and a broad and diverse platform can provide,” Mr. Rahn said. “Financial reporting has become more complex in this ever-accelerating business environment, and with that comes an added level of legal and regulatory scrutiny. I am excited to join the team of experts at FTI Consulting to further build this practice, focused on helping clients address these intricate challenges. The marketplace will demand accounting professional services evolve faster in the ensuing years than ever before, and FTI Consulting is leading that movement through continued investment in its nimble and client-centric practice.”
