He brings to this role deep knowledge of both our business and the global financial services marketplace, along with a track record of exceptional client service.

“I also want to recognize and thank Richard for his significant contributions to Accenture during his 35-year career with our company. He has demonstrated outstanding leadership with both our clients and our people throughout his career. Our business in Financial Services has nearly doubled under his leadership, with a focus on driving transformational change for the world’s leading financial institutions, and he has played an instrumental role in shaping the growth agenda for Accenture’s Consulting business. On behalf of Accenture, I wish Richard all the best in the future.”
