Bill Kracunas Named to Prestigious Top 25 List by Consulting Magazine
Recognized for excellence in technology
BOSTON, MA -- Bill Kracunas, technology practice leader for RSM McGladrey’s East Region, was recently honored at a gala dinner at the St. Regis Hotel in New York as a 2011 Top 25 consultant in the U.S.
Since 1999 Consulting Magazine has recognized the top consultants in their field, and each year the recognition grows in popularity. This year the company received more than 400 nominations, 25 of which were awarded the honor.
“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized among such an elite group of peers,” said Kracunas, who works out of the McGladrey Boston office. “Since joining the firm in 1999, my team and I have worked tirelessly to ensure we have the right talent providing unparalleled service and capabilities to our clients. This recognition validates that our clients think we’re on the right track.”
Kracunas joined the regional Boston firm Caturano & Company in 1996 as an internal IT associate. By 2001, he was promoted to lead both internal IT and the fledgling consulting practice. At the time, the New England consulting practice was just a four-person group generating $400,000 annually. A few years later, he was running a 100-plus person practice generating more than $20 million in revenue.
McGladrey acquired Caturano & Company in 2010, and with that Kracunas’ responsibilities grew to lead the East Region’s Technology Consulting practice, from Maine to Florida.
“Bill is a terrific leader and contributor to our consulting practice,” said Gary Sturisky, RSM McGladrey’s national leader of business consulting. “As the magazine coverage states, Bill is always asking the hard questions, such as what’s high value to each and every one of our clients. This honor is well deserved.”
Kracunas is also passionate about ensuring his teams get properly trained. The magazine quotes him as saying, “We want to make sure our folks are trained to remain indispensable to our clients. In a downturn, sometimes firms cut back on training. We didn’t.”
Bill has a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and an MBA from Bentley University. He currently is a member of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce Future Leaders Program. In 2008, Bill was selected by the Boston Business Journal as one of the "40 Under 40" honorees.
