Helen Kean

FTI Consulting (Stellenbosch)
Senior Director

My work is focused on Competition and Regulatory Economics. I have over 10 years’ experience in all areas of these fields, including mergers, market inquiries, abuse of dominance cases, and regulation/policy. My skills include acting and testifying as expert witness before the Competition Authorities; quantitative economic analysis including strong econometrics; project management; report writing and presentations. I have successfully testified before the South African Competition Tribunal and successfully acted as economic expert before the Namibian Competition Commission. I have also successfully acted as quantitative expert before the South African Competition Commission, including in four extensive data room processes for market inquiries. I have added value to clients in the following sectors: Industrials (mining support products, steel and inputs, various commodity markets, airline fuel, retail fuel stations, industrial conveyor belts, surveying equipment, packaging); health and healthcare (health behavior, hospitals, pharmaceuticals, medical schemes, medical devices, medical practitioners); agricultural, food and FMCG (grocery retail, dairy, tobacco); banking (including banking licenses); technology (online business support services); and telecommunications (mobile and fixed line, undersea cables). I write publicly (also being a published author) and present widely. Prior to joining FTI Consulting (merged with Econex), I was an analyst with Nedbank Capital Corporate Finance. I hold a MSc (Economics) degree (cum laude) from the University of Bologna (Italy). I have completed a year-long professional course with the Gordon Institute of Business Science, and professional training on abuse of dominance and merger assessments at the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics.
