Scott McIntyre is the CEO of Guidehouse.
It's now been a year and a half since the familiar name in our industry of Navigant Consulting was retired from use when its merger with Guidehouse was completed. That merger in October of 2019 created a consultancy of over eight thousand employees in fifty offices globally.
After the first full year, post-merger, it published an extraordinarily transparent and detailed "2020 Environmental, Social, and Governance Report." PUF sat down with Guidehouse's CEO to go through this unique report and see where ESG fits in at this very large consulting firm. Check out below how fundamental the CEO, Scott McIntyre, feels ESG is for his company.
PUF's Steve Mitnick: What made you at Guidehouse decide to acquire Navigant?
Scott McIntyre: Guidehouse was established just three years ago, through the carve-out of PwC's public sector business. That was a big business. It was focused on management and technology consulting to government agencies in the federal, state, and local arenas.
Its primary emphasis was on national security, public health, infrastructure, and in the financial services and other regulators. While it was already scaled when we carved it out of PwC three years ago, it was one of the larger management consultancies serving government anywhere in the world. It was purely focused on the public sector.
