Accenture has strengthened its Strategy & Consulting division with Steve Giles, who joins the firm as a managing director based in Brisbane.

Following 15 years with Deloitte Consulting (latterly as a partner), and two years with National Australia Bank in a leadership role, Steve Giles has joined Accenture as a leader in the Talent and Organisation practice.

Building on his years of experience leading organisation transformation across industries, Giles now oversees Accenture’s Organisation Design and Strategy capabilities across Australia and the Asia Pacific region.

Commenting on the appointment, Gaston Carrion, Managing Director and Leader of the Talent and Organisation practice, said: “The design of new organisational models and implementation of new ways of working is critical to support business growth and develop more sustainable organisations. In addition, having the right senior leadership and organisational enablers will be critical for the next frontier of growth and innovation.”

“This is where our Organisation Design and Strategy team come in. They help C-suite clients with architecting and activating operating models that enable better ways of working, customer centricity, agility, resilience and adaptability.”

“I am excited to welcome Steve as the leader of this team. His experience and track record will enable Accenture and our clients to achieve the new wave of enterprise reinvention.”

Giles remarked: “The business environment is changing in ways and at a pace we did not imagine even ten years ago. These changes make finding the right resilient, capability-led model more critical for success and survival than ever before.”

“My passion is to help clients make the right strategic choices to align their operating model to thrive, grow and exceed performance expectations. We must also create organisations that support their people and make space for community building.”

Last month, Accenture also added Jo McConnell to the leadership team of its Talent and Organisation practice. McConnell leads the newly launched CEO-led Transformation service line across Australia, Asia Pacific, Africa, Middle East and India.
