McGladrey Names Bill Kracunas National Management Consulting Leader
McGladrey LLP, the nation's leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, has named Bill Kracunas national leader of its management consulting practice, succeeding Jim Lamb who will retire on April 30. Based in Boston, Kracunas is a principal of the firm and currently leads McGladrey’s technology and management consulting (TMC) practice in the Northeast Region.
In his new role, Kracunas will be responsible for setting the strategic direction of the national management consulting practice and ensuring McGladrey brings the latest tools, methodologies and approaches to McGladrey clients to make them more successful.
“The transition will be seamless since Bill has already been a significant leader and contributor to our management consulting practice,” said Brian Becker, national technology and management consulting leader. “I’m confident of our future with Bill leading the way as we continue to expand and grow our capabilities to serve the middle market.”
Kracunas joined McGladrey in 2010 with the firm’s acquisition of New England-based Caturano and Company. He has more than 18 years of experience in business operations, management, technology and finance. In his current role, Kracunas is responsible for executing strategy and management operations for the firm’s Northeast Region TMC practice.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to lead what is already a very strong national team,” said Kracunas. “Because of our middle market focus, at McGladrey we approach management consulting a little differently. Our strategy is based on the belief that in middle market organizations, people, process and technology are highly interrelated. That is why our management consulting and technology teams work so closely together ― and we think that’s a huge advantage for our clients.”
In 2011, Kracunas was chosen as a Top 25 Consultant by Consulting magazine, and The Boston Business Journal (BBJ) named him as one of 40 under the age of 40 for his business success and contributions to the community.
A board member of Junior Achievement of Northern New England, Kracunas holds a B.S. in Physics from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, North Adams, Mass., and a Master of Business Administration from Bentley University, Waltham, Mass.
