Deloitte tops 100 partners in New Zealand

Sixteen new partner appointments underpin growth

Deloitte is pleased to announce the appointment of sixteen new equity partners over the last six months bringing the total number of equity partners across the Firm’s six offices to 104.

Seven new equity partners have been appointed from 1 June. They are Audit partners Andrew Boivin (Auckland), Melissa Collier (Auckland) and Mike Hoshek (Christchurch); Consulting partners David Turk (Auckland) and Adithi Pandit (Wellington); Corporate Finance partner Tim Arbuckle (Wellington); and Tax partner Phil Stevenson (Dunedin).

Four new partners were also appointed in December 2013, including Corporate Finance partners John Tan (Wellington) and Scott McClay (Christchurch); Forensic Services partner Jason Weir (Auckland); and Audit partner Melissa Youngson (Hamilton).

Finally, as part of Deloitte’s merger with Curtis McLean in February 2014, five new Private partners were appointed from the Wellington-based Firm, including Curtis McLean co-founder Mike Curtis, Steven Brokenshire, Stephen Florentine, Jon Mellors, and Paul Pettit.

Deloitte New Zealand Chief Executive Thomas Pippos says the latest appointments reflect both the firm’s ongoing investment in its people and culture, as well as its commitment to the continued growth of its practice in New Zealand.

“Our investment in sixteen new partners over the past six months is unprecedented and reflects the current demand for our services and our optimism for the future,” says Mr Pippos.

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