Aug. 31, 2014.

Ms.

Chairman and CEO Pierre Nanterme. “Under her leadership, we nearly
tripled our workforce from 100,000 to approximately 281,000, increasing
our presence in key geographic markets around the world. Jill led the
transformation of our Human Resources function to support this rapid
growth. During her 33-year career with our company, she has held a
number of leadership roles, including chief learning officer, and also
served clients in our consulting business across a range of
industries. It has been my privilege to work with Jill on our senior
leadership team, and it is a testament to her commitment to stewardship
that we have a terrific candidate for her successor.”

“I am delighted that Ellyn Shook will become our new chief human
resources officer, one of Accenture’s most critical executive roles,”

leadership positions within Human Resources over her 25-year career, and
has played a key role in nearly every major transformation we have made
as a company, including designing and implementing our executive
compensation strategies and equity programs. It has been my pleasure to
work with Ellyn for many years, and I am confident that she has the
depth of knowledge and experience to take the reins of our Human
Resources function moving forward.”

Until her retirement from Accenture, Ms.
Smart
will continue to be actively involved in several key client
relationships she has developed over the years, and also continue to
represent Accenture in a number of human resources-related forums.
