Global consulting firm names new Houston energy practice leader
A top global professional services firm named a Houston-based energy leader amid industry evolution and regulatory changes.
Alvarez & Marsal, or A&M, announced the appointment of Jay Johnson as senior adviser to its energy practice.
“I enjoy bringing together teams of people to solve the complex challenges facing companies today,” Johnson says in a news release. “I’m looking forward to working with A&M’s energy team to build leadership and capabilities to address industry challenges.”
The firm has over 500 energy consultants in over 30 countries.
According to A&M, Johnson’s joining represents the “next phase of A&M’s strategic plan to help energy clients maximize value and drive change amidst industry challenges, regulatory changes and economic volatility.”
“The firm’s focus on operational improvements lines up well with my own,” Johnson said.
The move complements last year's integration with The Carnrite Group, according to A&M's news release.
Johnson spent 40 years at Chevron in a variety of roles that took him from London and Kazakhstan to Papua New Guinea and the United States. He earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois, as well as an MBA from Louisiana State University.
“Jay’s background leading the upstream business for one of the largest energy companies and his industry perspectives will help A&M shape its future growth,” A&M Managing Director and Energy Practice Leader Lee Maginniss says in a news release. “Jay’s leadership experience combined with his operational mindset will be instrumental to developing firm-wide talent that can best advise clients.”
