Proudfoot CEO Pamela Hackett was named the global CEO award winner of the CEO Today 2019 Management Consulting Awards. The awards recognize strength and innovation in consulting industry leaders. As an organization, Proudfoot received Forbes Management Consulting Awards in 2018 and 2019, being named one of the best consultancies in America.

“Team Proudfoot deserves this recognition. We’ve delivered such meaningful results and transformation alongside our client teams throughout our rich history,” Hackett said. “I’m thrilled to be recognized through this award. Proudfoot’s goal is to reimagine the consulting proposition for our clients, creating consulting as an investment not a cost.

I’m sending a huge congratulations to our entire team – they are all in with our clients each day.”

Pamela Hackett wins global CEO award

Hackett has worked with Proudfoot since 1987, when she joined the firm as director of resource development and change management. She became vice president of European operations in 2005. She has also served as global president, people solutions; vice president of business identification; and president of the Asia and EMEA regions. Hackett was named CEO in 2017. She is based out of London.

Proudfoot, previously Alexander Proudfoot, was established in 1946 in Chicago. Now headquartered in London, the parent company of Proudfoot rebranded as Management Consulting Group. The firm retained ownership of the Proudfoot name, operating in the US out of an Atlanta-based headquarters.

In May of last year, Proudfoot was touted as “highly commendable” by the Management Consultancies Association (MCA) in the “Best International Project” category of the 2018 MCA Awards. The firm was recognized for its work supporting global mining company Rio Tinto in the creation of Oyu Tolgoi, the world’s largest underground copper mine, in Mongolia.  The country’s economy benefits greatly from the construction of mines – the mining industry accounts for 90% of exports and a third of the national GDP.

Management Consulting Group reported a decline in income over 2017, although the consultancy has stated that it nearly halved pre-tax losses compared to the previous financial year.
