Alvarez & Marsal announced the appointment of Jonathan Nus as a Managing Director in its Global Transaction Advisory Group in New York. Mr. Nus is the latest U.S.-based hire as part of TAG’s significant talent expansion over the last year. As part of TAG’s Capital Markets and Accounting Advisory group, Mr. Nus will advise clients on complex, technical accounting and reporting matters and capital markets transactions.
His appointment demonstrates A&M’s continued commitment to servicing evolving client needs.
In 2019, A&M promoted David Kent in New York, Erik Kessler in Chicago and Vlad Halas in London to Managing Director. The firm hired Senior Directors Michael Surr and Peter Dobbin from EY and Grace Auguste from Deloitte in New York, along with Ryan Orme from KPMG in San Francisco.

Over the past year, TAG also welcomed 52 new professional staff in Boston, New York, Atlanta, Miami, Nashville, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
“In the current market, it’s critical that Alvarez & Marsal’s Global Transaction Advisory Group has seasoned experts that can provide the highest-quality transaction services to our broad range of clients,” said Paul Aversano, Managing Director and Global Practice Leader of the firm’s Global Transaction Advisory Group.
With more than 20 years of experience, Mr. Nus is a recognized and trusted advisor in accounting and financial reporting, combining deep capital markets experience with significant technical accounting, financial analysis and operational knowledge. Mr. Nus has held prominent technical advisory roles with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (FASB) Investor Advisory Committee and the Financial Reporting Executive Committee, the senior technical committee of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) for financial reporting and other organizations with a financial reporting focus.
“Jonathan’s appointment, along with our newly promoted Managing Directors and recently hired Senior Directors, illustrates how we are strategically expanding our talent base to enhance our offerings,” said Anthony Caporrino, Managing Director and United States Practice Leader for the firm’s Transaction Advisory Group.
“The firm’s integrated approach differentiates Alvarez & Marsal from its competitors,” explained Mr. Nus. “Given its deep-rooted operational heritage and entrepreneurial culture, I can’t imagine a more exciting time to join the talented team at A&M. I look forward to leveraging my experience to help expand the breadth of top-tier services we can offer our firm’s clients to enable their continued success.”
