Joined CG as COO
As Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Carlisle & Gallagher Consulting Group, Alex Dickey has three primary responsibilities.
The first is managing CG’s operations – marketing, HR, recruiting, and finance – and working with the leadership team to develop the infrastructure required to support the fast-growing firm. The second is building CG’s capabilities, skill sets, and assets to meet the constantly evolving needs of its financial services clients. And, finally, there is his role as “Chief Transformation Officer,” ensuring the firm communicates and evolves its vision and multi-year growth strategy for the future.
Since joining CG in the summer of 2009, Alex has made his mark on CG’s operations and growth path, helping to create new career opportunities for employees and providing clients with more ways to partner with and benefit from CG’s industry expertise, seasoned experience, client-centric approach, and dedication to results.
Alex started and spent his consulting career at Accenture, joining the firm in 1987 when it was the fast-growing consulting arm of Arthur Andersen. His career flourished with the firm’s growth from 5,000 to nearly 170,000 employees as he served in a variety of consulting and management roles within its Financial Services industry practice – from running large-scale retail banking projects, to serving as Client Partner for several of the world’s leading financial services firms and managing Accenture’s Management Consulting practice for financial services clients in North America. As Managing Director, Alex held the P&L and relationship management responsibilities for nearly 40% of all the financial services clients in Accenture’s portfolio.
Alex has spent his entire career – nearly 23 years – consulting in the financial services industry. In addition to his focus on the retail banking sector, Alex has cross-functional expertise – including extensive work in the M&A arena, banking operations and customer service/call centers – as well as commercial banking and mortgage experience. Alex spent a large part of the 1990’s overseeing much of Accenture’s efforts for the emerging national bank, Bank of America, working on mergers and consumer and commercial banking projects.
As a manager, Alex takes pride in his track record of helping others succeed. He finds the people side of the consulting business meaningful and truly enjoyable. His diverse consulting and management roles combined with his experience in all the industry sub-sectors that CG aspires to serve, provides Alex with a valuable perspective on what both CG and its clients are trying to accomplish. He fortifies this perspective by maintaining close relationships with CG’s current and former clients, as well as colleagues and industry contacts made throughout his career.
Alex graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.S. in Business. He has always remained involved at his alma mater, leading Accenture’s recruiting efforts at UNC for 10-plus years, and currently teaches an Entrepreneurship class each spring as part of the undergraduate Economics program. Alex’s other passion is his 20-year relationship with the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, where he currently serves as Vice Chair.
In addition to teaching and volunteer activities, Alex enjoys running, fishing, camping, and traveling with his family. As a husband and father of two, Alex spends much of his free time at his children’s many sporting and extracurricular events.
