This year, PwC’s Public Sector practice was awarded the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, which recognizes PwC’s Public Sector Practice for performance excellence through innovation, improvement and visionary leadership.

“I’m most proud of our people and PwC’s entire Public Sector practice for demonstrating quality, innovation and client impact, which ultimately helped us earn this achievement,” McIntyre says.

“My proudest achievement includes playing a role in helping start and grow a successful consulting business that is dedicated to serving the public sector—while maintaining our focus to remain at the higher end of the market working on complex public sector matters,” he says.

McIntyre is an Advisory Principal and Managing Partner of PwC’s Public Sector practice, leading over 1,100 professionals who help federal, state and local governments solve complex business issues and improve performance and output.

McIntyre has more than 20 years of management consulting and financial management experience including extensive work in financial reporting, due diligence, systems integration and financial management process improvement and strategy development for government, aerospace & defense and healthcare clients.

McIntyre holds an MS in Information Systems from The Johns Hopkins University, an MBA from the Atkinson Graduate School of Management at Willamette University and a BA in Business Administration from Washington & Jefferson College.

He also completed Harvard Business School’s Leading Professional Service Firms Program.

Ask him what motivated him to excel and McIntyre says: “Building a sustainable business that serves the public sector by making government work better and serving our people by enabling them to grow their careers by doing impactful work.”

“It’s an incredible privilege to work on some of the highest priority programs and challenges facing our government—and to be entrusted with that privilege carries a big responsibility, but it’s one that constantly motivates the whole team,” he says.

McIntyre says PwC has a significant role to play in building trust in society and solving important problems.

“Our goal is to embed this purpose in all we do, and the public sector is a great place to accomplish this when we are bringing capabilities from the whole firm to address complex challenges and transformation opportunities across the government,” McIntyre says.
