The 22-year firm veteran succeeds John Gibbons, who will move into a new role with responsibility for advancing special projects for Deloitte Consulting Innovation and the Deloitte U.S. Consulting Global office, Deloitte said Thursday.
Foutty currently leads more than 15, 000 employees worldwide and launched the application management services, customer solutions and digital businesses within the technology practice.
Robin Lineberger, Deloitte Federal Government Services CEO, said Foutty brings technology services and financial services experience to her new role as federal agencies seek to acquire new technologies.
“Janet’s deep experience advising Deloitte’s many commercial technology clients will be a great asset to government agencies as they build capability through analytics, mobile, social business, and cloud and cyber intelligence, ” said Jim Moffatt, Deloitte Consulting LLP chairman and CEO.
Foutty also helped lead Deloitte’s acquisition of mobile firm Ubermind in 2012 in a move aimed at growing Deloitte’s presence in the enterprise and consumer mobile markets.
She has also served on the firm’s financial services industry leadership team, as well as the women’s initiative and diversity and inclusion leadership councils.
