Bill Kracunas has been named the new leader of McGladrey’s US Management Consulting Practice, succeeding Jim Lamb who retired last month. Kracunas’ new role will see him responsible for setting the strategic direction of the practice and keeping the firm at the forefront of industry wide changes.
Bill Kracunas started his career at professional services firm Caturano and Company in 1996 to lead the internal technology department, after which he was promoted to Director in 2001 and led the firm’s technology support team and client-facing external technology consulting services. In 2010 Caturano was acquired by McGladrey, where Kracunas continued to work under the new brand being promoted to Northeast Region Leader of Technology Consulting, responsible for executing the strategy and management operations of the Northeast Region TMC practice.
Kracunas holds a Bachelor degree in Physics from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and an MBA from Bentley University.
As the firm’s new National Management Consulting Leader, Kracunas will be responsible for defining the strategic direction of the national Management Consulting Practice as well as keeping McGladrey’s up to date with the latest tools, methodologies and approaches for its clients. “The transition will be seamless since Bill has already been a significant leader and contributor to our management consulting practice,” explains Brian Becker, National Technology & Management Consulting Leader. “I’m confident of our future with Bill leading the way as we continue to expand and grow our capabilities to serve the middle market.”
Commenting on this promotion, Kracunas says: “I’m excited about the opportunity to lead what is already a very strong national team. Because of our middle market focus, at McGladrey we approach management consulting a little differently. Our strategy is based on the belief that in middle market organisations, people, process and technology are highly interrelated. That is why our management consulting and technology teams work so closely together â€• and we think that’s a huge advantage for our clients.”
