Deloitte Canberra adds three new partners and a restructuring service


25 June 2013:  Professional services firm, Deloitte, has appointed three new partners to its Canberra practice as part of a national total of 67 partners announced recently.

The three new Canberra partners, from 1 July 2013, are Saxon Rose (Taxation), Stephen Smith (Deloitte Access Economics) and Ellen Derrick (Technology Consulting).

Deloitte Canberra's Office Managing Partner, Lynne Pezzullo, said the new partner appointments in Canberra are an exciting time for the local practice which has been operating in the nation’s capital for the last 35 years.

“Saxon Rose will lead our Canberra tax practice, Stephen Smith will strengthen our high profile Deloitte Access Economics work and Ellen Derrick’s appointment will boost our IT advisory offering in the nation’s capital,” Ms Pezzullo said.

“They will join a large and growing local partner team which has a depth of understanding of strategy and execution in the Canberra public and private sectors.  

“Deloitte is committed to Canberra business and the community, as evidenced by our sponsorship of the Canberra Centenary celebrations this year.  

“We’re looking forward to strengthening this relationship by continuing to service both the public and private sectors, whether those needs are large or small, compliance or advisory related, inside or outside the box,” Ms Pezzullo said.

New restructuring services

In addition to the three new Canberra-based partners, the Deloitte Canberra office also announced a new service offering to public and private clients.  Corporate and personal insolvency, business reconstruction and turnaround management will now be offered from the Deloitte Canberra office with Eddie Senatore and his team joining Deloitte on June 1st from SBR.  

“Mr Senatore has more than 25 years’ insolvency and reconstruction experience and is highly regarded in the ACT market,” Ms Pezzullo said. “The service offering Mr Senatore and his team bring to the Canberra market is a further example of the commitment and growth of Deloitte in Canberra.”
