MENLO PARK, Calif., Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Two Protiviti leaders have been recognized by Consulting magazine for their impact on the consulting profession. Matthew Moore, a Protiviti managing director, has been named to the 2020 Top 25 Consultants list in the Leadership category. Daniel O’Keefe, a Protiviti senior managing director, has been honored with Consulting’s Lifetime Achievement Award as a tribute to his accomplishments over four decades in the profession.
Based in Protiviti’s Charlotte, North Carolina office, Moore is the firm’s global risk and compliance practice leader, which includes advising chief risk officers and risk, compliance and control functions at many of the top banks in the financial services industry. He is also a driver of Protiviti’s ‘next generation’ risk and compliance offerings, designed to help clients respond more effectively to dynamic business environments by leveraging intelligent automation, enhanced risk identification and data visualization techniques.
“Under Matt’s astute leadership, our risk and compliance practice has developed solutions that use the latest technologies and advanced analytics to provide our clients with valuable insights and increased efficiencies,” said Cory Gunderson, executive vice president, global solutions, Protiviti. “These services continue to help prepare our clients for the challenges of the future. We congratulate Matt for this recognition of his exceptional achievements.”
O’Keefe is a founding managing director of Protiviti, responsible for developing its Sarbanes-Oxley market strategy and later establishing the firm’s global account management program. Based in Chicago, O’Keefe helped grow global operations, built training programs, mentored fellow professionals, and contributed to establishing a culture of service excellence while also serving his clients. O’Keefe also established and led Protiviti’s award-winning ‘i on Hunger’ community service initiative to help alleviate world hunger, which has delivered more than 10 million meals globally.
“Dan has been with Protiviti from day one, helping to build and shape the firm into the global consulting business it is today,” said Protiviti President and CEO Joseph Tarantino. “His dedication has extended beyond serving our clients to our community service efforts, a deeply-rooted part of our culture. Through our i on hunger program, Dan has brought together Protiviti employees and many of our clients to help build a more sustainable approach to the critical problem of world hunger. The Lifetime Achievement Award for Dan could not be more deserved.”
