Deloitte LLP announced today that Janet Foutty has been named chairman and CEO of Deloitte Consulting LLP , effective Jan. 1, 2016. Foutty succeeds Jim Moffatt, who has recently been named global consulting business leader, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited.
Most recently, Foutty, a principal with Deloitte Consulting LLP , was Deloitte’s federal practice leader and led more than 7,300 practitioners to help federal agencies transform into more efficient, effective organizations. She expanded the practice over the past three years despite a difficult market environment that included sequestration and a government shutdown while growing revenues and improving profitability.
“Janet has a track record of helping clients tackle their toughest challenges with innovative solutions” says Cathy Engelbert, CEO, Deloitte LLP. “Her vision, superior client service, and thought leadership position her well to lead our U.S. consulting practice.”
Foutty previously led nearly 17,000 professionals in Deloitte Consulting LLP’s technology practice, where she achieved double-digit growth and launched several innovative businesses that address clients’ needs in evolving areas.
During her 25-year tenure with Deloitte, she has served clients across several industries and has raised visibility of thought leadership in key federal areas, including veterans’ issues, millennials in public service, and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.
“The complexity of today’s global business environment combined with the pace of change is something every organization is facing,” says Foutty. “As we work with our clients to address their most complex challenges, I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to serve the clients and people of this great practice—and am excited to build on the outstanding achievement of our consulting business. My passion has always been for our people and creating opportunity and competitive advantage for our clients, now and for the future.”
