Celerant Consulting Announces Appointment of Thomas G. Mackiewicz
Celerant Consulting, the global management consultancy specializing in operational improvement, has announced the appointment of Thomas G. Mackiewicz as Senior Vice President, Finance. Tom leads the Finance function in the Americas and is responsible for all internal accounting, financial planning, treasury, and tax functions.
Mr. Mackiewicz has more than 25 years of experience working in Controller, Treasurer and Tax roles in large organizations. Most recently, Tom was the Vice President, Corporate Controller and Treasurer with Ascential Software Corporation (now part of IBM). Prior to that, Tom joined Cambridge Technology Partners as Vice President, Corporate Controller and Chief Accounting Officer. Before CTP, he worked at Data General Corporation (now part of EMC Corporation) where he was Director of Corporate Taxes.
“Tom joins Celerant at a very exciting and critical time in our twenty-year history. As the result of our management buy-out from Novell in June, we now have greater control over our destiny and are well positioned to capitalize on new market opportunities,” said David Henderson, President of Celerant Americas. “As a senior member of our new leadership team, Tom will play a pivotal role in helping to drive our business forward, ensuring prudent financial guidance and support as we strive to achieve our strategic goals and larger business aspirations.”
He started his career with Bank of Boston as an Accountant, including a three year tour in Argentina. At Price Waterhouse (now PricewaterhouseCoopers), Tom was a Tax Manager in the newly-formed International Tax Special Practice Unit in the Boston Office.
“I was attracted to Celerant for a number of reasons, but ultimately joined the company for two; the people and the firm’s growth potential,” commented Mackiewicz. “With the buy-out now complete, we as a firm have a tremendous opportunity to expand the business further while forging even stronger relationships with our blue-chip client list.”
Tom holds a BSBA in Accounting from Northeastern University and a Master of Science in Taxation from Bentley College. In addition, Mr. Mackiewicz is a Certified Public Accountant.
