Global professional services firm FTI Consulting has announced a record number of new year senior managing director promotions, including Paul Harlond and Cameron Morse in Australia.

Melbourne’s Paul Harlond and Cameron Morse in Perth have joined 62 other FTI Consulting colleagues worldwide in starting off the new year with promotion to senior managing director.

The pair join a team of roughly three dozen senior managing directors in Australia, including last year’s promotee Michael Bates of the firm’s Sydney office and mid-year recruit Monish Paul in Perth.

“Congratulations to our newest Senior Managing Directors,” FTI Consulting chief executive Steven Gunby said of the 2023 crop of elevations, which eclipsed last year’s record number. “These promotions reflect the outstanding contributions each individual has made to our clients and our firm as well as our ongoing commitment to recognise and invest in our next generation of leaders.”

Paul Harlond

A member of the firm’s Restructuring and Insolvency team in Melbourne, Harlond joined FTI Consulting from KPMG in the middle of 2021, the latter where he served as a restructuring services director for two years. Prior to that, Harlond spent fourteen and a half years at KPMG acquisition Ferrier Hodgson, minus a brief period on leave working for Smith & Williamson in London.

During his near two-decade career, Harlond has amassed significant experience advising ASX-listed clients and large private companies on turnaround, restructuring, and formal insolvency matters, with over 200 client engagements performed to date across industries such as retail banking and financial services, construction, property, education, and manufacturing, both in the UK andAustralia.

Cameron Morse

Morse has been with FTI Consulting for more than a decade and a half in Perth, where he leads the consultancy’s local Corporate and Public Affairs team. A somewhat unusual pathway into consulting, Morse prior to joining FTI in 2006 spent over a decade as a rural press reporter and senior editorial lead – this however included time in the parliamentary press gallery in Canberra, offering a unique insight.

Morse has as such developed deep expertise in crisis and issues management, media and government relations, transaction andshareholder communications, and stakeholder campaigns, having served clients across a wide range of industries, including the mining, oil and gas, manufacturing, agriculture, financial services, health, real estate, retail, defence, infrastructure, and transport sectors.
