Business advisory firm AlixPartners LLP said Thursday that it had added a risk management expert as a managing director in its financial services practice.

William N. Callender, who will be based in New York, previously worked at First Manhattan Consulting Group LLC where he led the risk management practice. He focused on strategy, risk assessment, governance and performance measurement services for financial institutions.

Before that, Callender was a senior position trader at McKinley Capital Partners where he was responsible for all trading of portfolio positions.

AlixPartners said in August that it had purchased Boston-based financial services consulting firm, Mercatus LLC.
