(October 10, 2016) – AlixPartners, the global business advisory firm, today announced the appointment of Rick Peters as Managing Director in the Turnaround and Restructuring practice.

Rick will be based in the firm’s newly opened Houston office. He will further enhance the firm’s extensive global power and gas restructuring practice, which has advised on some of the most significant power and gas restructurings over the past several years.
