West Monroe Hires Kevin Rooney as Chief Administrative Officer

CHICAGO – West Monroe Partners, a national business and technology consultancy, today announced that it has created the position of chief administrative officer and hired Kevin Rooney[1] to fill the role. Rooney, based in Chicago, reports to West Monroe President and CEO Kevin McCarty and is a member of the firm’s executive team. Previously, he was an executive partner with Gartner.

Rooney is responsible for organizing a new Shared Services function that combines many of the firm’s existing departments. Under his leadership, the new function will link technology, strategy, and efficiency to enhance the employee experience and meet the organization’s growth and financial objectives. He will band together and oversee the following: human resources operations and benefits administration, office operations, internal merger and acquisition support, ESOP and 401k administration, insurance administration, accounts payable & receivable, procurement and vendor management, travel and expense management, and real estate and facilities.

Some of Rooney’s first priorities include improving business processes, improving communications between corporate functions, and participating in the strategic planning process—all of which are expected to enhance efficiency, reduce costs, and improve employee engagement.

“With this step, we are elevating attention to the services that allow us to focus on the market and our clients. We are also bolstering our executive team with vital leadership bandwidth and capabilities we need to achieve our financial goals and maintain our strong growth trajectory,” said Kevin McCarty[2], West Monroe’s president and CEO.

“Kevin Rooney has a commendable track record for helping organizations thrive in rapidly changing environments and for driving strategic growth by building a sustainable culture of inclusivity and innovation at all levels.” 

With Gartner, Rooney advised C-level technology and business executives in various industries on strategy and innovation, equipping them to lead their organizations effectively through change and challenge.

“I believe that it is a leader’s mission to build the culture, the technology, and the tools to best utilize the talent within an organization and to attract additional like-minded talent to drive the organization forward,” Rooney said. “I am fortunate to be joining an organization with such a strong and distinctive character and track record for success. I look forward to this opportunity to build and refine our Shared Services organization to enable the next phase of West Monroe’s growth and success.”

Prior to joining Gartner, Rooney was an entrepreneur and C-level executive. He co-founded Expert Interview, a first-to-market platform business that delivered “interviewing as a service,” helping hiring managers find and assess candidates and improve hiring quality. He was also chief strategy officer and chief information officer for American Access Casualty Company, a high-growth auto insurance company focused on the Hispanic market. Rooney began his career as a consultant with Arthur Andersen Business Systems Consulting.

Rooney is chairman of Society for Information Management (SIM) Chicago, the premier IT networking group in Chicago and one of the largest SIM chapters in the country.

Rooney joins an expanding C-suite at West Monroe. Earlier this year, the firm promoted three of its longest-serving leaders to C-level positions to deepen its investment in organizational growth: Doug Armstrong to Chief Operating Officer, Tom Bolger to Chief Strategy Officer, and Casey Foss to Chief Marketing Officer. 

West Monroe has grown from a 2002 startup to a firm of more than 1,100 employees with nine offices across the United States. In 2017, it announced plans to double its workforce[3] over the following five years. The firm earned more than 25 awards in 2018[4] for its people-first culture.
