McCracken Named Chief of Deloitte Consulting
As expected, Douglas M. McCracken was tapped to fill the chief executive post at Deloitte Consulting. He currently is Managing Director of Deloitte Consulting, Americas, and Chairman of the Board of Directors for Deloitte & Touche USA.
McCracken succeeds Pat Loconto, who was CEO since Deloitte Consulting's global practice began in 1996.
McCracken has said he will continue the firm's pursuit of new business in a variety of arenas, including lucrative e-Business engagements; already, the firm has more than 400 of these under their belts.
He officially takes over as CEO on June 1.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
