We are a results-driven global consulting firm that specialises in helping businesses successfully address their most complex and critical challenges

AlixPartners has worked with clients around the world for nearly forty years, helping businesses respond to challenges when everything is on the line—from urgent performance improvement to complex restructuring, from risk mitigation to accelerated transformation.

Each project is different, but they all have one thing in common—a need for decisive, informed, and often urgent action. And because that need is at the heart of everything we do, it has come to shape every aspect of our business.

The way we work—with our clients, as well as each other—is as much a part of who we are as what we actually do. It’s what makes us different—and the partner of choice for some of the world’s most successful as well as some of the most challenged companies, when it really matterssm.

At AlixPartners, your passion becomes your career. You’ll work alongside the top professionals in your field in an exciting, innovative, and entrepreneurial culture.

You’ll sit shoulder-to-shoulder with owners, boards, and CEOs to address the issues that sit at the top of their agendas – and often become front-page news. Whether your background is in industry, technology, business, consulting, or corporate services, you will have the opportunity to make a difference in the futures of the businesses across the globe.

One-firm approach

Because we are a single, global entity with a shared culture, we offer more opportunities for collaboration, learning, development, and international exposure.

Independent thought

As a results-focused team, we offer truly independent advice and work together to solve the most difficult and intractable problems facing businesses today.

Practical solutions. Fast

We work in small teams and partner with senior executives to deliver practical solutions to urgent matters — fast.

Career Growth

At AlixPartners, career growth is not a one-size-fits-all progression based on tenure but instead one that is propelled by high performance, initiative, and impact. Our entrepreneurial culture enables our people to create distinctive career paths aligned with the firm’s business and tailored to their individual experiences, passions, and interests.
