See link at: BANKWESTINFO for information on serious misconduct by a director of FTI Consulting in Australia that helped lead to the Australian Banking Royal Commission.
As Royal Commissions have shown it's a crime to deliberately hide such conduct. This case involving FTI Consulting was used in Parliament House Australia as an example that helped instigate the Banking Royal Commission. It was also used to expose misconduct by Challenger CEO Brian Benari. Challengers share price has since halved and Benari has left. Social media exposing Benari at Challenger had up to 7,000 hits a day in the Sydney CBD. If this case will be used politically and in the media and social media to bring on a Senate Inquiry into the conduct of receiver managers in Australia. FTI Senior directors memo "Sink Boots into Customer" (see at link SINKBOOTS ) is a damming document from a company that's supposed to be acting ethically. The misconduct was by FTI Director Mark Englebert. Current directors are fully aware of what he did and have a moral and legal obligation to do the right thing. Even more so as FTI was supposed to be acting on behalf of the companies it destroyed.
Some Background on FTI Consulting” From the FTI Website “Our Values” include’’ “Integrity Respect and Empathy” On the FTI Code of Ethics there is a letter from FTI Chairman Steven Gunby, USA: “Over the last 30 years FTI Consulting has grown to become a market-leading global consulting firm by serving as a TRUSTED ADVISER to our clients in BOTH GOOD AND BAD TIMES. As Trusted advisers, our clients look to us to PROTECT THEIR INTERESTSWITH UNQUESTIONABLE INTEGRITY” He goes on to mention: “Direct and honest communications and behaviour are critical to the success of our firm” And: “a group that aspires to enhance our Companies reputation each and every day”
I ask current FTI Directors to consider if you believe the conduct of FTI in my case reflects those values? FTI also offers Dispute Advisory Services…. Well lets look at some of the issues in my case on this website... I believe FTI have some dishonest corporate thugs within their ranks.
From the FTI Consulting website: FTI Consulting are a US based consulting company listed on the New York Stock Exchange with a market capitalization of over $2.9 billion. Goodwill is listed at $1.1 billion on their 2018 balance sheet. They employ over 4,600 worldwide and act as advisers to 8 of the worlds top bank holding companions. They are "dedicated to helping organisations... resolve disputes" and "assist clients across the business cycle" They have a company-wide Code of ethics. A good Reputation takes years to build and is critical for a consulting company like FTI.
I have evidence that Mark Englebert, a senior Manager at their Perth Western Australian office has acted dishonestly, destroying my business. He lied to a Federal Senate inquiry and was involved in an ongoing cover-up of serious misconduct. He has since left FTI.
This case has been referred to the Australian Small Business and family Enterprise Ombudsman and they initiated a case appraisal into the matter. Details are at link: OMBUDSMAN Current senior directors and staff of FTI Consulting are aware of serious misconduct in this case. They include:
Ian Francis, Senior Managing Director, Corporate Finance Perth.
Alan Tantleff, Senior Managing Director, Corporate Finance, New York. A " respected hospitality industry and real state professional" I sent Alan details on this case on 7 June 2019, I will directly contact other American senior directors if the Australian directors don't act fairly and honestly in upcoming case conciliation.
Mark Dewar, Senior Managing Director Australia. On FTI website " Mark's focus is in helpin g clients..." Well my company were clients of FTI and paid FTI and their lawyers over $1.2m for their services.
John Park, Senior Managing Director, Corporate Finance Brisbane.
Heather Klink, Deputy General Counsel, Washington DC.Responsible for all legal affairs of a NYSE listed global business advisory firm. Heather has been sent detailed information on this case and requested on 4 June 2019 (after the damming case appraisal instigated by the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman) that I send all correspondence to her and that she will personally respond to me.
Maria Duta, Managing Director - Risk and Operations. previously with ASIC 2011 to 2015... From her LinkedIn profile: "High volume operational role. One of three executives leading Assessment & Intelligence, a national front line customer focused team of ~ 100 staff responsible for compliance assessment and action of reports of misconduct and intelligence referrals from the public, financial market participants and government and law enforcement agencies." Maria seems to be an honest person, I'm hoping she acts fairly in this case.
As far as I am aware none of the above, except Senior manager John Park, have been involved in the misconduct, they are now however aware of it and I appeal to all of them to do the right thing now. I request they read the information on the website links on this page. The information is factual with links to supporting documents. Put yourself in my position and ask yourself honestly if you think my family has been treated fairly. When this all happened I was married with four daughters all living at home, 3 at school, one at university. We lost our business, investments and family home over this misconduct by an FTI director and cover ups by others.
My companies paid FTI and their lawyers over $1.35m to act on my companies behalf. FTI Senior managing director Mark Englebert breached any trust and destroyed my business. Details on the website listed above FTI at the Senate Hearings link to video at: FTISEN Watch from minute 5.27 on that video; FTI Director Mark Englebert withheld the legal advice. Its clearly a cover-up.
Conciliation meeting by the Ombudsman 30 September 2019: NOTHING HAPPENED John Park the Australian Senior Managing Director of FTI Consulting met and explained that the person responsible for the misconduct has now left FTI Consulting so its not their problem anymore. John is fully aware that's not how things work in the corporate world. He is fully aware of serious misconduct yet continues to try to cover it up. He even issued what I believe are veiled threats to destroy electronic records on this case... Statements more befitting of a dishonest corporate thug.
Senior FTI Directors in America are now aware of this including Heather Klink and CEO Steven Gunby The misconduct and ongoing cover up at FTI Consulting in this case is similar to conduct within now disgraced and defunct Arthur Anderson and Enron.
My actions in Australia helped instigate the Banking Royal Commission and this case is such a disgrace it will get a lot more publicity now in the wake of the Banking Royal Commission.
I hope current directors and staff at FTI Consulting now do the right thing.
I will also lodge a complaint with the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) to have this case resolved there. Bankwest appointed FTI and was fully aware of their misconduct yet failed to act. Bankwest is a member of AFCA so this case will fall under their jurisdiction.
AFCA and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) have extended powers as a result of the Banking Royal Commission. Legacy Complaints inquiries. AFCA Website at LINK Expanded jurisdiction Requires AFCA, for 12 months, to accept complaints about conduct dating back to 1 January 2008 Changes to AFCA Rules LINKLawyers advice.
