We are delighted to announce that John Hawkins has joined Elixirr as a partner with effect from 1 May 2012.

John has over 25 years experience working with world class organisations in the private and public sector to transform their business both in terms of market effectiveness and cost efficiency.
John was one of the most senior partners in Accenture (being in the top 25 of 3,500 partners) and was responsible for the firm’s largest and most complex outsourcing transactions, transforming multiple processes across various continents in highly competitive markets. During this time John worked in many industries including Financial Services, Retail, Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, Communications, Media and Central and Local government.

He specialises in working with Client Board members, developing and implementing the Board’s vision and business plan, taking on tough tasks and getting them done.
Stephen Newton, Founder and Managing Partner of Elixirr, and former colleague at Accenture commented on John’s arrival:

It is a privilege to have John as part of the team. John hired me into Accenture, and together we have worked on some of the truly defining moments for Accenture. He has an unmatched reputation in the consulting and outsourcing industry as a leader and market maker. He has the unusual ability to work across all levels of an organisation and is an inspirational leader.

Prior to joining Accenture as an experienced hire John was V.P in Computer Sciences (CSC), selling and leading sales teams across Europe to secure large multi-country outsourcing deals in the commercial market place. A number of these are still running today. Before CSC, John designed and sold some of Capita’s earlier outsourcing deals in the UK public sector.
