Global management consultancy Alvarez & Marsal has welcomed a new leader – Manas Tamotia – to its Southeast Asia and Australia division.

Manas Tamotia brings over two decades of strategy and mergers and acquisitions experience across ASEAN, America, Australia and New Zealand to the firm, gained both in consulting and industry roles.

In addition to supporting transactions, Tamotia has advised more than 50 corporates and private equity-owned portfolio companies on strategy assignments.

“Manas’ experience significantly augments our commercial due diligence capabilities and overarching Private Equity Performance Improvement practice in Southeast Asia,” said Luis de Lucio, Managing Director and Head of Alvarez & Marsal’s Emerging Markets region.

Utsav Garg, Managing Director and Head of the South East Asia and Australia division, added: “Multiple senior consulting leaders are choosing Alvarez & Marsal’s platform, which offers clients a refreshingly different and compelling alternative to anything offered in the market until now. We are delighted to welcome Manas.”

Based out of Singapore, Tamotia will lead the Private Equity Performance Improvement practice of Alvarez & Marsal in Southeast Asia. “Alvarez & Marsal’s operational heritage and commitment to driving change dovetails with my professional experience and philosophy.”

The appointment comes hot on the heels of Alvarez & Marsal’s expansion into Malaysia. The consulting firm is also on the verge of opening a new office in Vietnam, as part of “our strategic commitment to expand our footprint across Asia Pacific,” said Garg.

Prior to joining Alvarez & Marsal, Tamotia spent 13 years at L.E.K. Consulting across two spells, most recently as Head of its Singapore office. He also served as Chief Strategy Officer with a grocery e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia, and was part of the corporate strategy and M&A team at Constellation Energy in the United States.
