In addition to 30 years at Accenture, where he was most recently a Worldwide Managing Partner, Burgess has held several distinguished industry positions in recent years.

As Chairman of EMEA, Burgess will work closely with Peter Mockler, BearingPoint's new Executive Vice President of EMEA, and will be responsible for providing strategic leadership and building key client relationships across the region. Burgess will be based in BearingPoint's London offices.

“As we continue to reenergize and redefine BearingPoint, we are extremely pleased to welcome someone as talented and experienced as Keith to our leadership team,” said BearingPoint Chief Executive Officer Harry You.

Burgess has 35 years of experience in the management and strategy consulting industry. The majority of his career was spent at Accenture as Worldwide Managing Partner, where he was responsible for establishing the global success of that firm's outsourcing business, among other things. He also served as the Worldwide Managing Partner of Practice Competencies, maintaining the skills, competencies and knowledge of the company's 45,000 workforce. During this period Burgess revamped the firm's methodology for managing and executing client work.

Before holding global positions with Accenture, Burgess served as UK Managing Partner, responsible for the strategic direction, operations and profitability of the UK practice. The operation became the firm's leading national practice outside North America and the largest management consultancy in the UK. More recently, Burgess held the title of Executive Chairman at QA plc, where he was responsible for guiding the company through the bursting technology bubble and remedying legacy problems.

Burgess is an adviser to the UK Treasury and was recognized by the Queen for his contribution to public services in 2004. He received a BSc in Physics and a PhD in Solid-state Physics from Bristol University.
