Former Accenture CEO Pierre Nanterme dies at 59
Pierre Nanterme, former chief executive officer of Accenture, has died at the age of 59, just days after stepping down as CEO of the company. The New York Times said Accenture confirmed Nanterme’s death, but did not specify the cause or where he died. Nanterme was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016, five years after he became CEO of Accenture. He has since been replaced by David Rowland as interim global leader. Pierre Yves Raymond Nanterme was born 7 September 1959 in Lyon, France. He graduated from Essec business school near Paris in 1981, spent a year in the military in an Alpine unit and, in 1983, joined the accounting firm Arthur Andersen, the predecessor to Accenture. He became a partner at Andersen Consulting 10 years later. When he stepped down, Nanterme said it had been an honour and privilege to serve the firm’s clients and employees for the past 36 years.
