FTI Consulting, Inc. FCN announced yesterday that it has appointed Andrew McCarthy and Anna Bleazard in leadership positions in its Financial Crime Compliance practice within the Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment in Singapore. Both have joined the company from Deloitte.
McCarthy, whose expertise include anti-money laundering, sanctions, and anti-bribery and corruption compliance, has been appointed as a senior managing director and leader of the Financial Crime Compliance practice for Singapore and Southeast Asia.
