John Powers, formerly a managing director for Deloitte LLP, has been appointed as the consulting firm’s federal defense sector lead.
Powers will succeed retired Air Force Gen. Charles Wald, who has moved to his new role as vice chairman of Deloitte LLP’s board of directors and will remain a senior adviser to the federal practice, the firm said Monday.
Janet Foutty, a principal at Deloitte Consulting LLP and federal practice lead, said Powers holds leadership experience in reorganization and business process optimization functions.
Powers most recently led Deloitte’s merger and acquisition restructuring practice in the U.S. and worldwide.
He also oversaw the integration of the Bearing Point public sector practice into Deloitte’s federal government services practice in 2009.
