FTI Consulting has announced the appointment of the experienced journalist Andrew Ward as its new managing director.

Mr Ward joins the life science and healthcare communications practice from the Financial Times, where he has spent the last 18 years. He served as its pharmaceuticals correspondent for almost three years, covering the business, finance, science and regulation of the global pharmaceuticals and medical equipment industries, reports PMLiVE.

“FTI Consulting has named Andrew Ward, formerly of the Financial Times, as its new managing director.“

In his new role, he will be tasked with helping to broaden and deepen FTI Consulting's client base on a global basis, leveraging the experience accrued as one of the pharmaceutical sector's most respected reporters.

Ben Atwell, senior managing director and global head of life sciences and healthcare at FTI Consulting Strategic Communications, said: "We look forward to benefiting from his deep media experience and welcoming him to our global team of over 50 healthcare experts."

Mr Ward added that the opportunity to directly help businesses in the industries he has previously covered was "too good to turn down".
