Deloitte Private has a dozen reasons to celebrateDOWNLOAD
20 June 2013: Despite challenging economic conditions, Deloitte Private has continued to grow as evidenced by their appointment of eleven new partners together with Special Counsel, Peter Roach. Reflective of the growing strength of their national and international presence, the appointments include two new partners in their Papua New Guinea office, the first Big 4 partner in East Timor, a dedicated Chinese Services partner based in Sydney, as well as partners in Melbourne, Parramatta, Tasmania and Brisbane. Two of the partners were lateral hires with the remainder being promoted from within.
The appointments follow the establishment of Deloitte Private in Perth from 1 June 2013 (comprising three partners) and now see Deloitte Private with offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart, Launceston, Darwin, Alice Springs, Canberra, Parramatta, Baulkham Hills, East Timor and Papua New Guinea.
David Hill, Deloitte Private National Managing Partner says, “These appointments are testament to our commitment to high net worth individuals, SMEs, family businesses and the mid-market in Australia. We are strong believers in the robustness of privately held businesses in Australia and the value proposition we offer.”
The important contribution of the family business sector to the Australian economy was recognised earlier this year when the Government established a Federal interdepartmental committee to identify key policy concerns for family businesses.
David Hill, who addressed the Government’s Senate Committee inquiry into Family Business says, “This inquiry was a key step toward a more detailed understanding of this sector’s needs and importance to the Australian economy.”
Mr Hill continued, “With the appointment of Peter Roach, who for the past 12 years has held the position of CEO of Cambooya Pty Ltd (the Fairfax family office), we have added one of Australia’s most respected family business specialists to our team.”
Peter’s primary focus will be on the services Deloitte offers to families including investment governance and the use of philanthropic vehicles within family groups. The latter will complement Deloitte Private’s focus on the large and growing Not For Profit sector in Australia’s ‘social economy’. Peter will continue to serve on the boards of a number of trustee companies and Private Ancillary Funds.
