The 2017 Executive Outlook: Janet Foutty


Deloitte Consulting Janet Foutty / Chairman and CEO 

Consulting: Can you sum up where your firm is today? 

Foutty: 2016 was another strong year for us with continued growth of our consulting business. We have continued to develop our business to serve our clients’ evolving needs. We have had an outstanding year with regards to our talent—attracting and retaining great people and extending the range of skills we bring together for our clients. Today we have different types of people working together than what would have been found in a consulting firm in the past. For example, we have data scientists and designers working alongside with people in more traditional consulting roles to help clients take advantage of developments in artificial intelligence, cloud, and the transition to a more digital approach to business. Disruption is a continuous cycle, so we also made exciting acquisitions this year to strengthen our capabilities—both in the digital space and to add industry-specific depth. For instance, we acquired Heat, a full service creative agency, and Casey Quirk, the world’s largest strategy consultancy devoted exclusively to serving the asset management industry. Forging strategic alliances to deliver the best thinking to our clients was also important for us this year, including teaming with Apple to focus on enterprise digital transformation.
