Gary Glickman, formerly an official at the U.S. Treasury and Office of Management and Budget, has joined Accenture (NYSE: ACN) in a strategy consulting role and will work with the firm’s state and local government customers.

Accenture said Tuesday that Glickman spent the 30 years prior to the Treasury and OMB in other advisory roles to work with public sector and businesses in areas such as human services delivery, technology, financial services, international market development and risk management.

During his last four years in government, Glickman focused on work to develop new practices for financing public programs including social impact bonds and “pay for success” initiatives, the firm said.

At OMB, he sought to further that agency’s use of data and evidence in fields such as human services and environmental response.

He also led the Partnership Fund for Program Integrity Innovation, an initiative that is intended to help public sector leaders and other stakeholders find new ways to address program needs.

Glickman authored a chapter in the book “Managing Risk and Performance: A Guide for Government Decision Makers” and has written other articles and reports on change management.
