Top Consultants Include Accounting Experts, E-Specialties
The June 2000 issue of Consulting magazine has a list of the top 25 consultants in the world.
This year's issue once again includes experts from Big 5 firms and spin-off consulting firms.
Most interesting about the list was that more than half of those listed are involved in e-Consulting from companies whose primary business is electronic business, as well as e-commerce departments of traditional consultancy practices.
The magazine reports that the top consultant, Bill Nussey, CEO of iXL, Inc. is 'what every traditional consultancy fears:' a venture capitalist turned consultant. The magazine says he represents the new 'breed' of consultants who are truly breaking the mold.
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.
