Penelope Prett, a senior managing director of Accenture (NYSE: ACN), has been promoted to chief information officer in a move that takes effect Dec. 1.

She will succeed Andrew Wilson, who will continue to work with Accenture through January 2020, and oversee global information technology and digital operations in her next position, the company said Wednesday.
