Deloitte Consulting Names Janet Foutty CEO

Janet Foutty is the new chief executive and chairman of Deloitte Consulting, the company said Monday. She is the organization's first female CEO. Deloitte Consulting advises clients in fields including energy, financial services, technology and the public sector.

Foutty said her priorities include innovation — internally and for clients. She said it is important to help clients balance the demand to be innovative with knowing when to pull the plug. “What I’m really seeing change is the pace at which we and our clients are expected to drive innovation, enabled by enormous changes in technology and in the complexity of the market,” Foutty told the Chicago Tribune.

Foutty said she is “fearless” about bringing her personal side to work, and that she talks to her employees about how to balance life’s demands with work. But she advised women to be themselves and to borrow great ideas from those they admire. “I do believe how women grow and evolve is so unique and personal that if I try to role model myself after you … I could end up in a really unhappy place,” Foutty said.

Foutty is replacing Jim Moffatt, who is moving onto become the global business consulting leader. (Washington Business Journal)

In 2014, Foutty was promoted to taking care of the firm’s Federal practice in Arlington, VA. (Washington Post)
