NEW YORK, June 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AlixPartners LLP, the global business-advisory firm, today announced that Harvey Kelly, managing director and co-leader of the firm's Financial Advisory Services unit, has been named one of Consulting Magazine's "Top 25 Consultants" for 2012. Kelly was recognized for his achievements in client service.
Kelly, who is also global lead of the firm's Corporate Investigations Practice, was recognized for his 25 years as a financial consultant and the continued growth of the firm's investigations and related work around the world. In the past year, Kelly guided the AlixPartners unit through several significant engagements and helped lead the firm's expansion in Asia. Over the course of his distinguished career, he has worked closely with numerous companies – both large and small – and helped with their foremost regulatory and legal challenges, such as alleged securities violations, risks associated with the False Claims Act and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), alleged corruption and other potential violations.
Consulting Magazine's "Top 25 Consultants" awards are among the most coveted in the industry and recognize the best consultants in the United States across nine different categories. Kelly was selected from the nearly 500 nominations received by the magazine this year.
"AlixPartners is honored to have Harvey Kelly recognized as a 'Top 25 Consultant,'" said Fred Crawford, the firm's CEO. "He truly understands the value and importance of client service and building relationships. His vision and expertise have been instrumental in the growth of our FAS unit in general and our Corporate Investigations Practice in particular, which are an integral part of AlixPartners today, along with our corporate-turnaround and enterprise improvement offerings. Harvey has also played a key role in the development of the firm's growth globally, particularly in Asia."
Last year, Kelly was awarded the AlixPartners "Founders Award" for his vision, leadership and commitment to teamwork inside the firm.
"This award is an honor to our entire Financial Advisory Services team at AlixPartners, and highlights our firm's overall commitment to helping clients succeed, no matter how challenging the situation," said Kelly. "This award also honors AlixPartners heritage of delivering its unique brand of results-oriented financial advisory services to clients."
