Happy Birthday, Accenture!

Renamed. Redefined. Reborn. 01/01/01.

It's official! Effective 1/1/01 Andersen Consulting is now just a memory and Accenture is alive and well. The world's largest consulting firm will celebrate its first day of existence with a plan to build an entirely new form of consulting company.

"We are building a network of businesses to meet the needs of any 21st century organization - consulting, technology, outsourcing, alliances and venture capital," according to Joe Forehand, managing partner and CEO of Accenture. "This network is made up of interrelated businesses and more than 100 alliance relationships all focused on knowledge and innovation in management and technology."

Accenture is a $10 billion global management and technology consulting organization with more than 70,000 employees in 46 countries.
