Herve Sodatonou

Partner, Management Consulting & Advisory

Herve has over 25 years of consulting experience, including 13 years with Accenture, partnering with corporates and government agencies to develop and deliver business transformation strategies and growth at the intersection of business performance, digital technology, and operations.

My story

I am an entrepreneur at heart; after graduating with computer science, I worked for a couple of corporate banks, then ran my own software business for 9 years before exiting it. Looking for a more global perspective, I joined Accenture Management Consulting in the UK, which has had me travel to many places. And while I was enjoying this global perspective, I took a break to study for my MBA at the University of Chicago Booth School of business. Driven by my entrepreneurial mindset, I decided to join other companies to help them with their growth strategies.

My focus

I lead a management consulting practice focused on Business growth and Sales Strategy at the intersection of Business performance, Digital technology, Marketing and Operations. I help C-suite executives develop strategies to transform their organisations to win business and grow revenue. I focus on accelerating growth by bringing sales effectiveness, technology innovation, and digital capabilities to our clients. I work with senior leadership, providing strategy to C-Suite executives and providing customers with services that grow revenue.

My motivation

I have a strong inclination for entrepreneurship, business development, and people management across multi-disciplinary teams to make lasting improvements in client revenue, growth, and performance.

I like the challenge of creating and developing using market expertise, strategy, macroeconomic outlook, finance, and people management to sell and deliver the best business transformation or restructuring.
