I would not tie details of a project to a specific client name. I would only mention the industrials but from time to time finding my self saying a client name in the intro of an interview. The best practice is to leave client names and confidential details off the resume. I also see resumes listing client names but do not really hold agaist them. As long as no confidential data is shared or spoken about and an ill intent is in the play, I let it slide because we are in the same profession and take pride in the work most of time. Most of us in consulting often work with the same client. We can tell who the clients are and the type of work being performed if you are in the space long enough.
