FTI Consulting loses top energy lobbyist as Wynn walks
The former EDF Energy heavyweight is yet to announce his next move.
One of FTI Consulting’s top energy lobbyists has left the firm after less than two years.
Gareth Wynn joined FTI as a senior managing director in 2015. He joined the consultancy after holding a number of key posts at EDF Energy including director of communications and group director for the Olympic and Paralympic programme.
Upon hiring Wynn in 2015, FTI senior managing diretor John Waples enthused: "I am delighted that Gareth has joined our team and will be leading our rapidly expanding work in the energy sector. It is an industry that is at the forefront of everyone’s minds, be they in business, government or simply the general public.”
Wynn added: “I am very excited to join FTI Consulting at a time of such change for the energy industry. Our international footprint, the breadth of expertise we have in-house in public policy and economic development, as well as the wide range of specialist communications disciplines, means we are extremely well-placed to fully understand and meet the challenges facing companies in the sector."
Before joining EDF, Wynn was director of public affairs for Hertz.
His exit was confirmed by FTI Consulting CEO Ed Reilly, who declined to comment further. It is not clear whether Wynn has a new post lined up.
In the last APPC register, FTI lists Noble Energy, Plutus PowerGen, Innogy Renewables and RWE Innogy as clients.
