A top executive from a major consulting firm says he wants to leave the company he co-founded after President Donald Trump fired him over his handling of sexual misconduct claims
CNNMoney:A top executive with a major consultancy company says he would like to leave his position at the firm he cofounded after Trump fired his boss.
Matt Staggs, president and CEO of Accenture, told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Wednesday that he is leaving Accenture after the company’s board approved his departure.
Staggs also said he has not yet decided what his next steps are.
He was replaced in March by former CFO Kevin McBride, who took over from Stagg, according to Accenture’s statement.
Accenture did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.
In a tweet, Accenture CEO James Anderson called the decision “a mistake,” and said he was sorry.
Accenture has faced several controversies since Trump fired its chief executive in July, including allegations that a top management team at the company used a private email address to conduct business, as well as allegations of financial mismanagement and an executive who reportedly used an undocumented work visa to stay in the U.S.
