Our strategy and technology consultants have empowered our international clients with the knowledge and experience they need to build their own local resources and capabilities.
Our clients call upon us to work on their hardest problems—delivering effective health care, protecting warfighters and their families, keeping our national infrastructure secure, bringing into focus the traditional boundaries between consumer products and manufacturing as those boundaries blur.
Booz Allen was founded on the notion that we could help companies succeed by bringing them expert, candid advice and an outside perspective on their business. The analysis and perspective generated by that talent can be found in the case studies and thought leadership produced by our people.
We've come a long way delivering innovative solutions. But our next chapter is still being written.
Our 22,600 engineers, scientists, software developers, technologists, and consultants live to solve problems that matter. We’re proud of the diversity throughout our organization, from our most junior ranks to our board of directors and leadership team.
Carl Hamilton joined the firm, then known as Edwin G. Booz & Fry Surveys, as a partner in 1935 and made significant contributions to clients and the firm’s governance until his death in 1946.
A specialist in marketing, Carl distinguished himself as a rainmaker who attracted major clients to the firm and performed highly regarded work for organizations such as Olin Corp. and the Lumber Manufacturers Association.
Although he joined the firm later in his career and spent just over a decade in its leadership, Carl left a lasting mark through his authorship of Booz Allen’s original Code of Ethics. Written in the 1930s, it was among the first codes of ethics by any corporation or partnership. He articulated 10 principles about the obligations of the firm’s leaders to clients, each other, and to the greater good.
“Carl left a lasting mark by authoring Booz Allen’s original Code of Ethics. Written in the 1930s, it was among the first codes of ethics by any corporation or partnership.”
Among Carl’s original Code of Ethics’ principles were: “Willingness on the part of each to face all firm problem’s objectively and dispassionately without arbitrary or prejudicial position.” Another read: “Unwillingness on the part of each ever to speak disparagingly of his associates to anyone.”
He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota.
