NZ enterprise in mind as Deloitte makes triple tech hire

New directors tasked with providing expertise across the full breadth of the consulting firm’s service offerings

Deloitte has appointed two new equity partners and twelve new directors in New Zealand, driven by a heavy focus on enterprise technology.

Effective from 1 June 2018, three new director hirings include Aravind Subramanian specialising in analytics, Leissa Wheatley with expertise in customer experience and digital design and Joanne Lu focusing on cyber security.

Collectively, the new leader appointments bring the total number of equity partners across the firm’s six offices to 118, and the number of directors to 55.

Based throughout New Zealand, Deloitte’s new directors are tasked with providing expertise across the full breadth of the consulting firm’s service offerings; including audit, tax, technology and systems, strategy and performance improvement, risk management, corporate finance and accounting services.

“Our investment in these fourteen new leaders reflects both the current demand for our services and our optimism for the future, and underscores our commitment to providing professional growth opportunities for our people,” Deloitte New Zealand CEO, Thomas Pippos, said.

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

With more than 13 years industry experience, Subramanian joined Deloitte in 2014, following management roles at AGC Networks, Oracle and Tata Consultancy Services.

“Many businesses are making a fundamental shift from experience-based judgment to data-driven decision making that enables business outcomes,” Subramanian said.

“I enjoy helping clients on the journey to maximise the value of analytics and information that deliver real business value.”

Meanwhile, Wheatley joined the Deloitte Digital arm of the consultancy giant in 2010, having previously held creative design roles at Experian Interactive, BT, Chameleon Net, Emedia and Intrapower.

“My focus is the delivery of service design and customer experience design services to New Zealand organisations and their customers,” Wheatley added.

“I draw on my foundation in web development, UX and visual design to ideate, design and implement new or improved product and service concepts and experiences for my clients, and play a coaching role in building design thinking capability within their organisations.”

Rounding off the new appointments, Lu joined Deloitte in 2006, as manager of cyber, privacy and resilience.

“I am passionate about helping organisations embrace new technologies and new ways of working – in a secure and safe way,” Lu said. “I work with organisations to build security, privacy and resilience into their new initiatives, right from the start.

“This has included working closely with some of our largest government agencies so they are able to innovate while protecting the information of New Zealanders.”
