Deloitte WA welcomes four new partners in FY19 intake

14 June 2018: Professional services firm Deloitte is adding to its Australian leadership by promoting four new partners in Western Australia for FY19.

Deloitte Western Australia Managing Partner Michael McNulty said: “I am very excited and proud to welcome Jacqui Peachey, Antoinette Quinlan, Lauren Jones and Paul Snowden. They represent a continued investment in Western Australia which we have maintained throughout the economic cycle and reflect our confidence in the resilience and positive outlook for our state. These new partners bring unique capabilities into our partnership across the business in a year which has also seen us add six other partners across multiple domains.”

The four promotions were part of an intake of 68 new partners for Deloitte Australia for FY19.

Deloitte Chief Executive Cindy Hook said; “Deloitte’s success is built on its great people and our new partners will help shape tomorrow's outcomes for our clients and our people. They have the chance to make a real impact that matters for our brand, for our business, and in our community.

“Together with the 61 lateral hires we welcomed throughout 2018, we are investing in people with deep sector, industry and technical expertise. We develop the solutions required by our clients to help them face an environment of technology enabled business change and solve the complex problems confronting them such as conduct, cyber risk, digital transformation, growth, operational excellence and the future of work.

“Deloitte’s reputation as a great place to work is also highlighted in that eight of the new promotions have risen through the firm after starting as graduates, while another six started their careers at Deloitte, went and worked elsewhere then returned. This demonstrates the ability to create flexible career experiences,” said Hook.

Four out of the ten Western Australia partner promotes and lateral hires are women – representing 40 per cent of the intake.

“We are in the business of developing leaders capable of shaping and owning the major issues that are most important for our clients, the Western Australian agenda and the community in which we live and work,” said McNulty.
