Two more for Alvarez & Marsal

Continuing its aggressive recruitment drive, Alvarez & Marsal, the US-headquartered consultancy firm has appointed two retail experts to its European performance improvement practice.

Mark McMenemy and Anthony Lucas will be part of the recently formed specialist retail team in response to the growing demand from retailers for operational and financial assistance as they continue to struggle to control liquidity and costs.

McMenemy has been appointed senior director and has more than 20 years of operational experience in managing turnaround situations and growth opportunities. Prior to A&M, he was group finance director at Clarks Shoes, Mothercare and Monsoon.

Lucas has also been appointed senior director and matches McMenemy’s two decades of industry experience. Before joining A&M, he was a consulting partner with Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
