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.
