Accenture appointed Giorgio Migliarina as communications and media industry lead for Asia Pacific (APAC). He is responsible for business development and operations in the region and helping clients shape and deliver large-scale company transformation programs.
Migliarina came from Telekom Malaysia where he spent eight years as chief technology and innovation officer in charge of network, IT and research and development. He oversaw the transformation of TM’s IT and network platforms and managed several projects such as the Malaysia’s fibre-optic network, the launch of new operational support systems and business support systems for B2B and B2C businesses, and the complete redesign of field processes. Migliarina was also in charge of B2B sales and TM’s pivot towards managed services, IT, Internet of Things and vertical industry solutions.
He was named APAC chief technology officer of the year in 2012 by the Asia Communications Awards and was on Global Telecoms Business 2015 and 2016’s lists of 50 CTOs to watch.
Prior to joining TM, Migliarina was a partner with McKinsey & Company for 10 years, co-leading the telecom and ICT practice for APAC.
“We are committed to having the best talent in the industry so we are thrilled to welcome Giorgio to our team,” said Bob Sell, group chief executive of Accenture’s communications, media & technology operating group. “Giorgio’s experience on the client-side puts him in a unique position to understand the complexities and requirements of a communications service provider. As such, it gives him the insights needed to help clients transform their businesses for future success.”
“After many years focusing on one company, I wanted to take a step back and embrace the opportunity to focus on digital transformation with many different key players across the APAC region,” said Migliarina. “I believe Accenture is the best positioned in the market and I am excited to be part of this tremendous organisation and to be able to help clients tackle the challenges of their digital transformation journeys.”
