Mike Freedman has been elected as president of the Management Consultancies Association for 1999. Freedman, a partner and board member of management consultants Kepner-Tregoe, has served on the MCA council for the past six years as chair of the membership committee and, for the last year, as vice-president.
Freedman plans to enhance the active participation of members and increase the MCA’s membership, “bringing major benefits to members and their public and private sector clients.”
Freedman said: “1999 is a landmark year – the introduction of the single currency and the final preparations to combat the threat caused by the millennium bug will present significant challenges to business and government in the UK … the consultancy profession will play a vital role through what is likely to be a turbulent period.”
