Accenture (No. 14 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list ) announced that Roxanne Taylor, chief marketing and communications officer, will retire from the company at the end of the fiscal year, Aug. 31, 2018. Amy Fuller will join Accenture from Deloitte, where she was senior managing director of global brand, and succeed Ms. Taylor as Accenture's chief marketing & communications officer, effective Jan. 1, 2018. Ms. Fuller, who joins Accenture later this week, will be a member of the company's Global Management Committee.
"Roxanne has made a significant contribution to Accenture during her 22-year career with our company, including more than 10 years as CMO," said chairman and CEO Pierre Nanterme. "We believe constant reinvention is key to our success, and at every major milestone for our company, Rox's vision and leadership have helped shape our business and brand strategy – from becoming a public company in 2001, to establishing Accenture as a global, market-leading brand, and most recently, to defining our digital-first strategy and position as an innovation-led company. During her tenure as CMO, Rox has built a strong and innovative team that has significantly increased Accenture's reputation and brand value, helping us attract clients and recruit talent around the world. On a personal level, it has been my great pleasure to work closely with Rox over many years as a valued member of our senior leadership team.
"I am delighted that Amy is joining Accenture to become our new chief marketing & communications officer," said Mr. Nanterme. "She is an experienced global marketer with a track record of achieving results across a range of consumer and B2B companies, including MasterCard where she led the iconic "Priceless" campaign across all channels and markets. In addition, she brings to the role extensive agency experience. Amy is known for her creative excellence and innovation, as well as her leadership in building multidisciplinary marketing and communications teams across specialties and geographies. I look forward to working with Amy as we continue to strengthen the Accenture brand in the marketplace."
