TOP 100 GLOBAL SALES LEADERS 2021

John Walsh

Chief Strategic Accounts and Global Sales Officer at Accenture

 

Walsh’s role at consulting giant Accenture is all about relationships — seeking them out, building them, and maintaining them. Prior to being named Chief Sales Officer in March 2020, Walsh had spent most of his over-three-decade tenure at the company leading its communications, media, and technology group both on a regional and global scale, setting the vision and strategy for sales and revenue growth. Walsh has “a proven track record of creating value for our clients and our business, as well as a deep commitment to our core values, including the development of our people,” Julie Sweet, Accenture CEO, said when he took his new position in March 2020. He’s the director of several boards, including unicorn cloud company Vlocity and adtech company Adchemy, which was acquired by Walmart.
