The division emerged out of the recommendations of a 1953 General Electric’s feasibility study that sought to industrialize the payroll handling and developing at the General Electric’s Appliance Park facility located at Louisville, Kentucky. Andersen Consulting adopted its present name “Accenture,” which was coined by a Danish employee at its Oslo, Norway office known as Kim Petersen from the phrase “accent on the future,” on January 1, 2001. The name was befitting for the company because it captures and reflects its determination to be a global consulting leader, and a high performance organization.
