subjects Robert Eccles writes about Mergers, Acquisitions & Restructuring, Alliances, General Management
Robert Eccles's profile Dr. Eccles is a founder and president of Advisory Capital Partners, Inc. (ACP). He is also a Senior Fellow of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). Since 1993, ACP has provided strategic, financial, and organizational advisory services to both large companies and fast-growing small and medium-sized ones.

This advice includes assistance with raising capital, negotiating joint ventures and strategic alliances,

and assistance with mergers and acquisitions. ACPs M&A advice includes implementation, as well as the pricing and structuring of the deal. Prior to starting ACP, Dr. Eccles was a full professor at Harvard Business School (HBS) where he was on the faculty for 14 years, receiving tenure in 1989. When he left HBS, he was chairman of the Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management Area. While still at Harvard, Dr. Eccles pioneered a research methodology for identifying communication gaps in the capital markets. This was reported in a Sloan Management Review article Improving the Corporate Disclosure Process, with Sarah C. Mavrinac.
Six years ago Dr. Eccles began advising PricewaterhouseCoopers on its ValueReporting initiative. During this period, ACP and PricewaterhouseCoopers have worked closely together to help companies improve their performance measurement and reporting practices. Through these projects and an aggressive research program sponsored by PwC, Dr. Eccles refined and developed further methodologies for analyzing information flows and communication gaps in the capital markets. The culmination of nearly 10 years of research and practice development in this area is a new book: The ValueReporting Revolution: Moving Beyond the Earnings Game, with Robert H. Herz, E. Mary Keegan, and David M.H. Phillips, all current or former partners at PricewaterhouseCoopers. PwC and ACP are now collaborating to make the "revolution" a reality.

Dr. Eccles received his A.M. and Ph.D. degrees in Sociology from Harvard University and a S.B. (Bachelor of Science) in Mathematics and a S.B. in Humanities and Social Sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the author of many booksincluding Doing Deals: Investment Banks at Work (with Dwight B. Crane), Beyond the Hype: Rediscovering the Essence of Management (with Nitin Nohria)and articles, including Are You Paying Too Much for That Acquisition? (Harvard Business Review, with Kersten L. Lanes and Thomas C. Wilson).

Dr. Eccles resides in Lexington, Massachusetts with his wife, Anne, and their four children, Charlotte, Philippa, Isabelle and Gordon.
