(NYSE: FCN) today announced that Jason Frankl, a Senior Managing Director in the firm’s Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment, has been named to the 2020 National Association of Corporate Directors (“NACD”) Directorship 100 list, which highlights the most influential leaders in corporate governance.
Mr. Frankl, who has been named to the list for three consecutive years, leads FTI Consulting’s Activism and M&A Solutions practice. He is a nationally recognized expert in Nasdaq and NYSE compliance matters, corporate governance and securities trading.
“I congratulate Jay on being recognized by the NACD, which for the last four decades has honored outstanding individuals who significantly impact boardroom practices and performance,” said Paul Ficca, Global Leader of the Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment at FTI Consulting. “In the face of economic, public health and political uncertainties globally, the dedication and experience of professionals such as Jay are critical to the success of our clients.”
Mr. Frankl works with companies and investors to develop and implement strategies to maximize shareholder value. He also advises management teams and boards of directors on how to proactively develop and implement defense strategies associated with shareholder activism and contested M&A.

He is also actively involved with the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs (“WLC”), where he serves as Chairman of the WLC’s Corporate Advisory Board.
“It’s an honor to be named to the NACD Directorship 100 list again this year alongside so many esteemed professionals in the field of corporate governance,” Mr. Frankl said. “The past few months have been a challenge given the effects of COVID-19, which meant our guidance had to shift as we worked with individuals who have the responsibility of leading companies through a changing environment. This achievement recognizes our team’s ability to adjust priorities and help board members and management work through their most complex and unexpected challenges.”
