A.T. Kearney elects new board chairman

Paul A. Laudicina had been elected to a three-year term as chairman of the board and managing officer of A.T. Kearney, following a vote by the approximately 180 shareholding officers of the firm.

Laudicina, who has served as vice president and managing director of A.T. Kearney's Global Business Policy Council since 1991, will assume the post on September 1, 2006, succeeding current managing officer and board chairman H.L. “Henner” Klein.

The vote by A.T. Kearney officers marks the first election for the firm's top global leadership post since completion of its successful management buy- out earlier this year.

After assuming his new responsibilities, Laudicina, 56, will also become chairman of the A.T. Kearney Global Business Policy Council, a role traditionally held by the firm's chief executive. The Council is among the consulting industry's longest-standing strategic services for CEOs focused on identifying global growth opportunities and managing business risks. He will remain based in A.T. Kearney's Washington, D.C., office and also will maintain an office at A.T. Kearney's Chicago headquarters.

With more than 25 years of global consulting and management experience, Laudicina is the author of a number of articles and books, including “World Out of Balance,” published in the U.S. by McGraw-Hill in 2005 and also in six additional language editions. He has led scenario-based strategic planning and risk management engagements for many of A.T. Kearney's largest private and public sector clients, managed the firm's institutional relationships with organizations such as the World Economic Forum and Council on Foreign Relations, and was named one of the “Top 25 Most Influential Consultants” by Consulting Magazine last year.

Before joining A.T. Kearney in 1991, Laudicina was a vice president and director with SRI International, the former Stanford Research Institute, and founder of its policy division. He also served in a strategic planning role for a major global oil company and as a legislative director in the United States Senate.

Klein, 61, who has served as A.T. Kearney chairman and managing officer since December 2003, and who led the firm through the management buy-out process, has chosen not to seek a second term and will return to a client-facing consulting role
