Accenture Gets a New CFO

Management consulting specialist Accenture  (NYSE: ACN  ) has a new bean counter.

The Dublin, Ireland-based consultant announced today that David P. Rowland has taken on the role of CFO effective immediately, succeeding Pamela J. Craig in the position, as she will retire from the company on Aug. 31. The company announced Rowland's appointment back in March.

Rowland, 52, has 30 years of experience at Accenture, and most recently served as senior VP of finance, with global responsibility for the consultant's finance operations. He is also a member of Accenture's global management committee.

After thanking Craig for her 34-year career with the company, Pierre Nanterme, Accenture's chairman and CEO, said in a statement: "David clearly has the financial and operational experience, as well as the leadership capabilities, to excel as Accenture's CFO. I am confident that he will be an outstanding successor to Pam and will move seamlessly into his new role."

Accenture also announced that Richard P. Clark has been appointed chief accounting officer, effective Sept. 1, in addition to his current position as corporate controller. Previously Clark served as Accenture's senior managing director of investor relations and held executive positions in several Accenture business areas. A CPA, Clark will continue to report to Rowland.
