LTG (R) Mary A. Legere

Accenture Leadership at Accenture Federal Services

For 34 years, I had the honor of serving in the United States Army, working daily with an incredible team of selfless, courageous men and women, bound by shared values, a common purpose, and an unwavering love for country and for one another.

Over many assignments, deployments, and years, my husband (also an Army Officer) and I were inspired daily by the generosity, resilience and optimism of our colleagues and their families.

From the earliest days as a 22 year old along the West German border, to my final years as a Lieutenant General responsible for the Army’s Intelligence Corps, every day was a gift.

Now retired, I am so grateful for the honor to serve my country and to work with such wonderful people. I am proud to be a part of Accenture’s unwavering commitment to our Armed Forces, our Veterans and their spouses. As we say in the Army, I am a Soldier for Life.
