NEW YORK (May 2, 2018) - AlixPartners, the global consulting firm, today announced that Simon Negri has joined the firm’s global consumer products practice as a managing director. He will work from AlixPartners’ Chicago office.

At AlixPartners, his focus will include further deepening and expanding the firm’s expertise in consumer products consulting, particularly in the food and beverage sector.

Simon joins AlixPartners from management-consulting firm A.T. Kearney Inc., where he was a partner in the consumer and health practice.
