Graham McMillan Joins FTI Consulting Strategic Communications Segment as Senior Adviser

FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced the appointment of Graham McMillan as a Senior Adviser in its Strategic Communications segment from 10 January 2022. Graham was most recently a Principal in Teneo’s London arm, covering responsible business, sustainability, ESG, public policy and political risk in the UK, EU and internationally.

With more than 30 years’ experience advising clients such as National Grid, AstraZeneca, BHP, Dow and Kingfisher, Graham will focus on expanding FTI Consulting’s sustainability and responsible business offering for clients in the UK and beyond.

Graham joins FTI Consulting after six years at Teneo. Graham was previously CEO and co-founder of the award-winning consultancy Open Road, which specialised in responsible and sustainable business, public affairs and corporate communications. He sold Open Road to Blue Rubicon in 2014, and Blue Rubicon was acquired by Teneo in 2015.

John Waples, EMEA Vice Chairman and Head of the Strategic Communications segment in the UK at FTI Consulting, said:

“Responsible business and sustainability are both crucial themes that are central to corporate strategy, and Graham’s appointment reinforces FTI Consulting’s commitment to providing our clients with comprehensive counsel on these matters. Graham has built a strong reputation in this space, and we look forward to our clients benefiting directly from his expertise and experience.”

Commenting on his appointment, Graham McMillan said:

“Businesses face enormous challenges as they seek to reinvent themselves to address profitably the problems of people and planet in a way that makes them more successful and resilient. This is incredibly hard to do, but even more important against the backdrop of a global pandemic, the rise of populism, rising inequality and the environmental crisis. Businesses needs to move towards being net positive for climate, nature and society to play their part in addressing these huge challenges, but in doing so there are challenges and pitfalls as well as enormous opportunities. I look forward to working with FTI Consulting’s outstanding team to do what I can to help clients navigate this landscape in which the economy and business will have to transform in the years to come towards net zero, nature positive and greater corporate purpose.”

Graham McMillan’s appointment follows that of Rory Cellan-Jones, previously of the BBC, who joined FTI Consulting in early January to advise clients in the telecommunications, media and technology space.
