Consulting giant Deloitte is appointing 14 new partners and directors with three coming from its November buyout of Salesforce specialist CloudinIT.

Three new consulting partners in Auckland, Ben Edwards, Raymond Yong and Jacob Taljaard, join Deloitte as part of the acquisition of CloudinIT.

“Our investment in these fourteen new leaders reflects both the current demand for our services and our optimism for the future," Deloitte New Zealand chief executive Thomas Pippos said.

"A common thread for many of these new leaders is a deep understanding of how digital technology is shaping the businesses environment, further supporting our recent launch of Deloitte Digital in New Zealand."
