San Francisco Business Times Names FTI Consulting’s Sophie Ross as a Leading Woman in Business
Ross Recognized for Excellence in Business Growth, Mentorship and Community Involvement
Washington, D.C., May 7, 2014 — FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that Sophie Ross, Senior Managing Director in the company’s Technology segment, has been recognized by the San Francisco Business Times as one of this year’s ‘Most Influential Women in Bay Area Business’, which honors elite female executives who demonstrate the greatest impact on their businesses, communities and advocacy for women in business.
“Sophie brings a remarkable sense of drive, dedication and leadership to our team and her sustained focus has been critical in growing the scope and reach of our business,” said Seth Rierson, Senior Managing Director and Global Practice Leader of FTI Technology. “What I find most impressive is, in addition to her steadfast commitment to client service, she invests that same level of energy in developing the skills and diversity of our team, which is critical for us as they stand at the core of our business.”
Ms. Ross is an integral leader in the company’s Technology segment and stood out to the selection committee at the San Francisco Business Times for her ability to drive significant business growth, her commitment to mentoring women, and her contributions to her community. As Head of the Western Region for FTI Technology, as well as leading the company’s Acuity Document Review business, Ms. Ross oversees a large team and has helped establish Acuity™ as the preferred managed document review offering for leading law firms and corporations. In addition, she speaks regularly at legal industry events and develops white papers and articles on best practices relating to e-discovery. Ms. Ross recently held the position as President of the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco and remains on their Board of Directors and serves as the Chair of the Governance Committee. She also has a leadership role in the FTI Women’s Initiative, a companywide program to attract, retain, develop and promote highly talented female professionals.
“I am genuinely honored to be included in this recognition with such an amazing group of women in business, and extend my appreciation to the San Francisco Business Times for this honor,” said Ms. Ross. “The advancement of women in business is an important issue to me and one that I have worked to champion in my workplace. It’s satisfying to see companies beginning to offer non-linear opportunities for women that offer flexibility to pursue a career, without sacrificing other areas of their lives that are also a priority; and I believe programs like the ‘Most Influential Women in Bay Area Business’ are helping to put the spotlight on the unique value women bring to the table.”
On Thursday, June 12, 2014, the San Francisco Business Times will recognize this year’s honorees at a dinner and awards ceremony at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square in San Francisco. The honorees will also be featured in the May 2, 2014, edition of the San Francisco Business Times.
