Pelham-Lane joined the agency, then known as Financial Dynamics, in July 2000 and has helped to manage the process of pulling FD’s global teams together under the FTI brand after becoming global president in January 2011.
 
Before assuming his current role, Pelham-Lane served as FD’s UK CEO from 2007 and had also led the agency’s financial services practice.
 
Jack Dunn, president and chief executive officer FTI Consulting, said: ‘I would like to thank Geoffrey for his contribution to the firm and the growth of the Strategic Communications practice, in particular.  I wish him well for the future.’
 
Edward Reilly, chief executive officer of the strategic comms practice, will continue to lead the business globally.
 
The news is thought to be separate from FTI’s announcement on Friday that it was to trim 3% of its global workforce across the company.
 
The US firm announced that the job cuts, understood to affect around 115 roles, were largely centred on two business segments impacted by uncertain economic conditions. The group did not specify which divisions were involved, but it is thought that the strategic comms practice was not one of the two business arms that were referenced.
