Deloitte bolsters tech ranks with quadruple Kiwi appointments

The quadruple technology hire follows a round of new recruitments for Deloitte locally, with the appointment of seven new equity partners and ten new directors.

Deloitte has appointed four new technology leaders in New Zealand, as part of a drive to bolster capabilities across the country.

In Auckland, Marco Ciobo joins the consultancy giant as partner, while Charles Bonfante assumes a director role, with Kirsten Mclay and Terry Teoh appointed as directors in Wellington.

The quadruple technology appointments follows a round of personnel changes for Deloitte locally, with the appointment of seven new equity partners and ten new directors.

Effective from 1 December 2017, the new partner appointments bring the total number of equity partners across the firm’s six offices to 114.

“Our investment in seven new partners reflects both the current demand for our services and our optimism for the future,” Deloitte New Zealand CEO, Thomas Pippos, said.

“They bring diverse experience to their roles and underscore our absolute commitment to delivering the highest level of service to clients across the entire country.”

Specific to technology, Ciobo joins Deloitte from Accenture, exiting the integrator following more than two years as leader of technology strategy across Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).

“There are two aspects of a career in professional services that I am passionate about,” Ciobo said. “The first is helping clients navigate significant and transformational strategic issues for their organisations.

“Over time, I have specialised in the strategic issues brought about by technology and digital disruption. I also enjoy building and supporting effective teams and seeing talented people grow and develop.”

Meanwhile, Bonfante assumes the director role after heading up service management at the organisation since June 2015, following a consultancy position at KPMG in New Zealand.

“My passion is in delivering high quality results for clients,” Bonfante said. “My background is working with a wide array of clients across industries and geographies implementing projects and driving technology.

“We are living in a world of constant change and digital disruption is a major concern for our client base now and in the future.”

In Wellington, Mclay will look to draw on more than 10 years of consultancy experience, having joined Deloitte in January 2016, following roles at PwC, Davanti Consulting and IBM.

“I am passionate about harnessing the vast potential of technology to help organisations transform into modern and sustainable entities,” Mclay added. “We are starting to see the effects of exponential change in technology and organisations that struggle to leverage current technology will not survive in the future.

“I help organisations to view technology in a wide context, think about how they could embrace new technologies and translate their thinking into a delivery programme to realise their future vision.”

Rounding off the new technology appointments, Teoh takes up the new position following more than seven years as a senior manager within Deloitte Consulting, having previously held roles at ANZ and Accenture.

“I’m dedicated to helping clients lift their capability in portfolio management, governance and delivery of programmes and projects,” Teoh added.

“Within Deloitte, I am a technology methods and tools champion and I actively work with our larger projects to leverage Deloitte’s global best practice to successfully deliver complex engagements.”
