Longtime Defense Department official Elizabeth McGrath, who announced her retirement from DOD in November, has joined Deloitte Consulting LLP as a director in its federal practice.

McGrath, who served as the Pentagon’s first deputy chief management officer and as its performance improvement officer, finished her 25-year public sector career focusing on financial management, business operations and enterprise-wide systems efficiencies.

According to Deloitte, McGrath will now serve as an adviser to its federal government and commercial clients with an emphasis on innovation and improving business operations.

“We are delighted that Beth has joined Deloitte," said Janet Foutty, principal, Federal Practice Leader and Federal Consulting national managing director, Deloitte Consulting LLP. "Her knowledge, experience and relationships will be instrumental in helping our federal and military clients achieve their mission goals as well as strengthen Deloitte's deep capabilities in the Federal marketplace." 

Among her responsibilities at DOD, McGrath generated the DOD’s Strategic Management Plan, connecting its business operations to its mission, and led the Defense Business Council, the Pentagon’s governance body charged with oversight of business operations.

“Beth brings deep capabilities and experience in business operations from her many years of stellar service at the Department of Defense," said John Powers, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and leader of the Department of Defense sector.  "In her new role with Deloitte she can help our clients improve their business practices, improve efficiencies and enhance business operations from an enterprise-wide perspective."
