Gib Bulloch, Founder, Accenture Development Partnerships
Gib was working in Accenture’s consulting business when he saw an advertisement for VSO – the British volunteering organization. They were recruiting business professionals to contribute to development needs in post-conflict regions. A lightbulb went off – Gib asked, how can we apply Accenture’s core assets and skills to address development? And, ADP was born. The social enterprise model sits within Accenture – offering strategic consulting at reduced rates while the team brings valuable relationships and intelligence to the core business and increasingly attracts the best and brightest who are seeking meaning at work.
