Deloitte welcomes Global IO to create one-stop shop in the energy and resources and mining sectors
Toronto, January 21, 2020 – Deloitte is acquiring Global IO, a recognized worldwide leader in integrated operations (IO) in the energy and resources (E&R) and mining sectors. Founded in Perth, Australia, in 2014, Global IO operates globally and has offices in Montreal, Perth, and Santiago, Chile.
Global IO is joining Deloitte’s Consulting practices in Canada, Chile, and Australia, more specifically as part of the operations transformation offering. This will enhance the firm’s capabilities and reputation within the space to offer clients a complete delivery of operational transformation services.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Global IO. This addition is a key differentiator for our firm, and a major win for our clients who will truly benefit from a one-stop shop approach,” said Anthony Viel, CEO, Deloitte Canada. “Global IO’s strong reputation, deep relationships within the E&R and mining sectors, and credibility will allow us both to expand our efforts and provide dependable services to our clients from start to finish in a more agile and deliberate way.”
By joining Deloitte, Global IO will significantly expand its services, including how it engages in change management, project management, analytics, and digital strategy opportunities, as well as a range of unique operational productivity improvement projects. The collaboration with Global IO, which in the past has successfully worked with Deloitte on several large engagements with key clients, will also further the firm’s qualifications and capabilities in delivering end-to-end integrated operations projects independently.
“This is an important step toward creating a one-stop shop for our E&R and mining clients,” said Sébastien Blais, managing partner, Consulting, Deloitte Canada. “Its team’s deep operational expertise, complemented by our broad business transformation capabilities, will greatly benefit our clients both present and future.”
With a team of qualified professionals in design, implementation, operations management process, and integrated operations deployments in the E&R and mining sectors, 17 Global IO employees will be joining the firm across offices in Montreal, Vancouver, and Calgary (Deloitte Canada), Santiago (Deloitte Chile), and Perth (Deloitte Australia). Global IO partners joining Deloitte include: Dominic Collins, partner, Deloitte Chile; Pieter Lottering, principal, Deloitte Australia; and Eamonn Treacy, director, Deloitte Canada.
“What a brilliant next chapter for our team! This is a great opportunity for us to not only better serve our clients under the banner of Deloitte, but to expand our services with new resources, to broaden our scale and scope,” said Dominic Collins, partner at Global IO. “We’re now able to increase our efforts in areas like change management, digital strategy, and analytics, and deliver dependable services our customers, and Deloitte’s, have come to expect.”
