FTI Consulting has hired Nancy Hungerford as managing director in its strategic communications group. She is based in Washington.
Hungerford served as an anchor for CNBC International in Singapore and hosted Squawk Box and Street Signs Asia programs.
She led coverage of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings in Bali, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation business summit in Vietnam, and the G20 Summit in Japan.
Hungerford also worked as a general assignment reporter and producer for CNBC in London, and led coverage of the European auto sector as well as French corporate sector, government, public and media scrutiny.
Jackson Dunn, senior managing director and head of Americas PA for FTI’s stratcom unit, said Hungerford’s understanding of the pressing issues that C-suites are facing today will help clients navigate mounting political and reputational challenges.
