Mike Horne

Chief Executive

I am proud to lead the NZ Firm as the Chief Executive as well as serve on the Deloitte Asia Pacific Executive Leadership Team. In New Zealand we have an incredibly talented team of more than 170 partners and around 2000 professionals located across our nine offices.

Deloitte New Zealand is a firm that is focused on creating opportunities for our people to grow, enhance their capabilities and shape their careers, all while making an impact that matters for our clients, our people, and our community. We have a strong focus on serving our clients, utilising our expertise to help them to innovate and transform to be the best in the business. 

I have spent my career at Deloitte having joined almost 30 years ago, and have worked in Australia, the United Kingdom and across the Asia Pacific region. Helping our clients improve the fundamentals of their business through providing deep insights and meaningful information that can be used to shape their organisation and determine strategic next steps has always been a real passion for me. Having our clients succeed is the ultimate success and reward, and I will ensure Deloitte continues to take a proactive, genuine interest in our clients, their businesses, and the communities they support.

Purpose lies at the heart of how we operate at Deloitte and we see a strong role in providing insights, value and partnering with our clients to address key challenges that face our communities and through which we can better unlock the potential of Aotearoa.

Throughout my time with the firm I have served as the Managing Partner of the Dunedin office, on the Deloitte New Zealand Board and most recently as the Deloitte Private Lead for Asia Pacific and the COO for the New Zealand business.

I hold a Bachelor of Commerce and a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Otago. I am married with two sons and enjoy a number of outdoor pursuits including skiing.
