BearingPoint, a global management and technology consulting firm, has welcomed Scott Glenn as a partner and head of its new chief information officer (CIO) advisory practice in the US. He will be based in the firm’s US headquarters in Chicago.

As leader of the new CIO practice, Glenn will work with technology leaders to build new IT structures that enable business change, trend recognition, and new services.

Glenn brings more than thirty years of experience in IT and management consulting to BearingPoint, with particular expertise in manufacturing and supply chains.

He previously spent 17 years at consulting firm The Hackett Group, where he was a principal. Glenn focused on helping CIOs develop strategies and service delivery models in enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and human capital management (HCM). He specialized in supporting manufacturing companies with SAP solutions, including migration to the cloud S/4HANA platform.

Before Hackett, Glenn spent four years at General Motors, where was director of IT for North American brand marketing and director of global application development for manufacturing and quality.

Earlier in his career, was the leader of the ecommerce practice at Compuware and a systems engineer at EDS (now HP). He holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science and math from Madonna University.

“As companies want to become more digital, CIOs must understand what that means for their organization in terms of governance, delivery models, capabilities, and strategies. I will help our clients understand what transformation efforts their IT organizations must go through in order to support the long-term business objectives,” said Glenn.

BearingPoint – the former consulting branch of KPMG which spun off in 2000 – is based in Amsterdam and has global operations with more than 4,500 professionals. The firm’s US presence is sparse, having sold off its US operations to PwC and Deloitte in 2009. The company, however, has plans to grow in the US consulting market, with the nascent US practice forming a core pillar of its Strategy 2025.

“Expanding the business in the US with our new CIO advisory and Scott as its lead is an exciting opportunity. I am confident that we’re going to do great work for our clients in the US and get them where they want to be,” said Chetan Rangaswamy, US practice leader.
