From Consulting Magazine
Bob Koudelka passed away in a tragic hiking accident in the summer of 2008. He was nominated posthumously by the leadership of Deloitte Consulting and is an honorary Top 25 Consultant for 2009.
Koudelka was admitted to the partnership at Deloitte Consulting at the unprecedented age of 33, successfully leading more than 100 healthcare engagements nationally. His pioneering work on “personal brand” has dramatically impacted the careers of thousands of Deloitte staff, and is considered to be one of his greatest achievements—and part of his lasting legacy.
“Bob was a true leader,” says Deloitte Consulting chairman and CEO Doug Lattner. “He brought passion, commitment, integrity and humor to everything he did, and he was admired by those of us in consulting, his colleagues throughout the U.S. Firms and each of the clients he served,” Lattner says. “His contributions to the U.S. Firms, to our practice, to our people and to our culture are immeasurable. He was a role model, mentor, leader, colleague, partner and friend to so many of us, and we will miss him profoundly.” Read the full story.
