A Welcome as Accenture’s New Chief Information Officer
December 2, 2019
I am delighted and truly honored to lead Accenture’s extraordinary global IT organization. I come on board with more than 25 years with the company that includes many leadership and technology roles at major clients, on large transformation programs, and within Global Quality & Risk with our Resources group. Much of my experience has been in working with Accenture’s platform and industry ecosystem partners.
I want to take this opportunity to recognize and thank Andrew Wilson for his significant contributions to Accenture during his exemplary 27‑year career with our company. Andrew served as our chief information officer for more than six years. His innovation, drive, and leadership were instrumental in transforming IT and truly leading us into the post-digital age. He did so with personal impact, thoughtfulness, and style. True to his character, he leaves us with a cliff-hanger about his future! Please join me in wishing Andrew the very best in his next endeavors.
It’s an exciting time for Accenture’s global IT organization. We have much to look forward to working in the dynamic tech ecosystem. Our global team has been leading the way in becoming platform-powered, living in the cloud, digitizing business services, and building enterprise intelligence. We’re also advancing Accenture to a modern enterprise. Our major migration to Microsoft Teams—among many other initiatives—is a recent demonstration of this. And there is much more ahead.
I’ve just begun my transition, and already I am so impressed with the teams I’ve met. Our breadth and depth of achievements have been extraordinary. I look forward to what’s ahead for our organization and to how big we can dream.
