A.T. Kearney has appointed Robert Feeney as a partner of the management consultancy firm and head of the Australia and New Zealand Strategic IT Practice (SITP). Feeney comes from rival McKinsey & Company, where he worked for the past 8 years.
Robert Feeney has a long track record in the consulting industry. After graduating from the University of Melbourne he started his career at Accenture, where he eventually spent four years working in the Consulting business unit. In 2004 he enrolled to a MBA program at London Business School and after his graduation two years later he joined McKinsey & Company in the role of Engagement Manager. He spent in total eight years at the global strategy consulting firm, yet excited by the opportunities at A.T. Kearney he last month decided to switch employers.
According to Marcy Beitle, Managing Partner of A.T. Kearney for Australia and New Zealand, Feeney is an outstanding appointment given his expertise and experience working around the world. ''Robert brings a fantastic set of experiences across Australia, Asia and Europe, having worked with leading institutions to transform their strategies, their IT, their back offices and their people,'' Marcy said.
''With Rob coming on board, A.T. Kearney continues to ensure that we can offer our clients a broad range of world leading consulting services. We are excited by the rapid growth in the Australia and New Zealand markets that AT Kearney has achieved, and expect this to continue as we seek to grow our capabilities further.''
