Accenture, in a statement said, Nanterme was stepping down from his role for health reasons that were previously disclosed in July 2016.
Accenture's board of directors has appointed David Rowland as interim CEO and to the board as a director of Accenture, and named lead independent director Marge Magner as the non-executive chair of the board, it added.
"It has been my honour and privilege to serve Accenture's people and our clients for my entire 36-year career, and I've never been more confident in our business strategy, leadership team and people," Nanterme said.
He added that Rowland's involvement in developing and delivering the company's growth strategy to rotate its business to high-growth areas of digital, cloud and security will make the transition seamless.
Rowland has served as Accenture's CFO since July 2013.
