Africa Lead @ Accenture Song
Accenture Song is the business unit within Accenture that focuses on our clients growth agenda. We deliver Strategy & Consulting, Technology & Operations for Marketing, e-Commerce, Digital Product & Service. I manage a direct team of around 600 onshore headcount with another indirect 1000+ off-shore.
In this ever changing world the power of creativity to solve complex business problems is the secret sauce. To this end I have acquired the most admired agency in South Africa, King James Group, into Accenture to leave the unleashing of creativity, data & technology. The acquisition of KJG is the first ever acquisition done in Africa for Accenture in it's over 50 year history on the continent. My key clients include Telco, Retail, Automotive, Financial Services, Energy and Healthcare industries.
I form part of a market unit comprising Africa, India, UAE & KSA. We are currently expanding our offer to service all of these markets from SA. I currently support the US market and Europe for creative services including Advertising, Service Design, Front-End development, Digital marketing, Agile skills and analytics.
As part of Accenture Africa Exco I am jointly accountable for Accenture Africa with over R5 Billion ($300 M) revenue and over 2500 people as well as being a board director of Accenture Song (PTY) ltd.
