Deloitte’s WA energy and resources presence grows again with key Consulting and Tax appointments
Consulting partner and enterprise applications specialist Nigel Court has joined the firm from Accenture, and new Tax partner Will Campbell has arrived from PwC. Nigel will be consulting to the firm’s mining, utility and oil and gas clients, while Will’s tax advisory experience is relevant across both mining and oil and gas.
Deloitte Western Australia Managing Partner, Michael McNulty said: “Our mining and oil and gas operators continue to face significant business challenges, including ongoing uncertainty around commodity prices and their continued transition for many from project investment to production.
“Having access to deep industry expertise is incredibly important, and across their core areas of specialisation, both Nigel and Will bring a genuine wealth of additional experience to our firm and to meeting the increasingly complex needs of our clients.”
Deloitte National Mining Leader and Financial Advisory partner, Nicki Ivory also welcomed Court’s and Campbell’s arrival.
“Miners of all sizes need to manage costs and pursue and achieve productivity improvements in volatile times, and the right advisory services, across the likes of technology and innovation, and delivered by professionals with the right experience, can deliver real results.”
Nigel Court has joined Deloitte’s fast-growing national Enterprise Applications practice after nine years at Accenture, including as Asia Pacific mining leader. He will focus on SAP in the energy and resources sector in WA as well as nationally and into South East Asia. His 25-year career has been focused on delivering large scale SAP implementation programs.
Nigel said: “I’m excited to join Deloitte where there is an intentional purpose to change the way SAP projects are executed with our clients. We want to make an impact that matters to the users, in a way never seen in the Perth market, and Deloitte has a clear capability and skills to make this happen.”
Will Campbell has more than 20 years’ experience in advising clients operating in the oil and gas, mining and mining services, technology and financial service sectors across transactions and M&A, structuring, tax due diligence and compliance. He has worked with ASX listed, private and multinational clients and investors from China, Japan, Korea, the US, the UK and France.
He said: “I’m really pleased to join and bring my wealth of experience to a growing team that is clearly focussed and committed to delivering a seamless tax service offering to companies operating in the Western Australian market and the broader energy and resources industry.”
These latest new partner appointments follow key energy and resources specialist arrivals over the past 15 months, including Risk Services partner Michael Barrett as national leader of the firm’s energy and resources risk advisory group, and Deloitte Consulting mining leader David Cormack.
