Innovation and growth expert Peter Skarzynski has joined PA Consulting (PA), the consultancy that’s bringing ingenuity to life, as leader of the Americas. He will work across PA’s US growth sectors: consumer and manufacturing, health and life sciences, and energy and utilities. Maintaining PA’s position as a market leader and a segment of one, Peter will support the US team of strategists, innovators, designers, consultants, digital experts, scientists, engineers and technologists.
Peter brings more than twenty years of experience helping organizations set direction, capture new growth opportunities, and enable organizations to be more innovative. Before joining PA, Peter served as Managing Director at Deloitte, Managing Director and Co-Founder of ITC Business Group, and CEO & Chairman at Strategos.
Recognized as a leading expert in enabling organizational renewal and growth through innovation, Peter’s best-selling book, “Innovation to the Core: A Blueprint for Transforming the Way Your Company Innovates” was the first to describe how large organizations can build and sustain a company-wide innovation capability. His second book “The Innovator's Field Guide: Market Tested Methods and Frameworks to Help You Meet Your Innovation Challenges” details market proven methods and approaches to address the most critical innovation challenges.
PA is the only consulting firm with end-to-end innovation expertise. PA’s team helps develop world-leading innovations such as Airora Professional air decontamination technology, Virgin Hyperloop's reinvention of transportation, a universally designed line of award-winning beauty tools for Guide Beauty, the Clinician Matching Network which improves COVID-19 patient care by matching doctors to hospitals, and iPredict™, the world’s first artificially intelligent system for predicting failures in critical underground electricity distribution assets.
Ken Toombs, CEO at PA Consulting, says: “We are pleased to have Peter on the team, and welcome his experience helping large organizations bring new innovations to market. He’s had great success helping companies capture new growth opportunities – a skillset we plan to bring to our US clients.”
Peter Skarzynski, innovation expert and Head of Americas at PA Consulting, says: “I was attracted to PA because they are a global leader in helping clients imagine, create, incubate, and scale new businesses. Most consultancies lack the capabilities to do this. It is very interesting and energizing that PA is leading that space. I am excited to lead the US team as we deliver breakthrough innovations for our clients and bring ingenuity to life.”
