From newly appointed senior executives to a member of the Global Executive Leadership Team, First100 has been the go-to performance acceleration service for approximately 12 fast-track senior executives since 2005. First100 provided First 100 Days services to the newly appointed Chief Executive of the Resources Operating Group in 2007. During the years 2005 to 2011, we worked with a number of senior executives including the newly promoted Global Head of Energy and highly regarded Senior Executives appointed into critical "Diamond" Client Account leadership roles such as Client Account Leads for BP, BG and Anglo American. Outside of the Resources Operating Group, First100 has completed a number of assignments for the Global Strategy Practice, including First 100 Days work with the Global Head of Strategy and the EALA (European/Asian/Latin American) Head of Strategy. Other assignments include working with the Managing Director of the UK SAP Practice.
In 2013, faced with the need to grow sales & revenue, the leadership of Accenture’s Management Consulting Division increased their recruiting targets for experienced MD hires by over 100%. Securing a fast return on investment on each new hire was crucial. First100 was hired initially for a pilot of 10 MDs, to support onboarding and accelerate new MD hires’ performance. This program is successfully underway.
