Since the beginning of the 1990s, Deloitte has played an integral part in Central Europe's transition through its advisory role to governments, and local and foreign businesses.
In 1990 we established Deloitte & Touche Eastern Europe and started to serve clients in Hungary, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). At that time, our regional firm employed a handful of people, had offices in three Central European countries and the CIS, and posted annual revenues of under $0.5 million. Today, Deloitte in Central Europe employs over 3,400 people in more than 30 offices spanning 17 countries, and has annual revenues exceeding €220 million.
