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.
