Accenture CEO to resign; company quarterly profit better than expected

Accenture said Joe Forehand will resign as chief executive on September 1 but the 32-year company veteran will remain chairman. The announcement came as Accenture reported a better-than-expected quarterly profit, boosted by strong gains in its outsourcing business.

During his five years at the helm Forehand led Accenture from a private consulting partnership to one of the world's largest and most profitable publicly traded consulting and services concerns. The company said its board of directors has been actively involved in succession planning for the last two years and has identified a preferred internal candidate to succeed Forehand, whom they expect to name in mid-April after input from Accenture’s 2,300 partners.
