Accenture appoints Scott Hahn as its technology lead for Australia and New Zealand

Accenture has appointed Scott Hahn as its technology lead for Australia and New Zealand.

Hahn’s new role will span Accenture Labs, Application Services and its list of strategic alliance partners, and will see him take on building Accenture’s advanced technology capabilities.

Hahn has been with Accenture for over 30 years

Hahn has been with Accenture since 1988 when he started out in the US as a manager. In 1999 he was promoted to global client account lead and in 2017 he was elevated to AAPAC SAP business group lead.

Hahn said of his new role: “I am very excited about the opportunity to lead the technology team in Australia and New Zealand, and to help clients transform their businesses, drive value and accelerate growth.

“Powered by data, applied intelligence, cloud and intelligent platforms, I look forward to bringing the best of Accenture’s local and global capabilities to help accelerate innovation at scale in this region.”

Bob Easton, chairman of Accenture Australia and New Zealand, commented: “Our clients recognise the opportunity to leverage technology to transform at speed and scale. Scott brings a wealth of experience advising companies, and leading high performing teams around the world. He will bring new insights and create new opportunities for our teams and clients.”

Earlier this month, it was announced that Accenture would undergo a round of redundancies, with up to 70 underperforming managing directors set to leave the business.

A day earlier, The Monkeys’ Mark Green became the lead of Accenture Interactive Australia and New Zealand, with Justin Drape and Scott Nowell taking on co-chief creative officer roles. Michael Buckley departed his role as managing director of Accenture Interactive AUNZ in May this year.

Accenture Interactive announced its acquisition of global creative agency, Droga 5, in April.
