Alessandro Miolo has been appointed Managing Partner for Deloitte Switzerland’s Audit & Assurance business as the professional services firm seeks to continue its growth and impact in the Swiss marketplace.
Effective 1 February 2019, Alessandro Miolo will act as the Managing Partner, Audit & Assurance, and join the Deloitte Switzerland Executive team. A Swiss Certified Public Accountant, Alessandro joined Deloitte early 2018 from another professional services company in Switzerland, where he had held various leadership positions, led major audit mandates and developed new accounting advisory services.

With the overwhelming support of our Partners, I firmly believe that Alessandro is the right candidate to lead our Audit & Assurance business. His passion to help our clients and people succeed in the digital age and his relentless focus on quality are fundamentals as we look to continue to transform this important business into the future,” says Simon Owen, CEO of Deloitte Switzerland.
Alessandro Miolo states, “I am delighted to join the Executive team of such a fast-growing and dynamic organisation as Deloitte at a time when the audit industry is seeing revolutionary developments. We are driving the transformation of our profession by bringing new technologies such as artificial intelligence and advanced analytics to our audit processes. Combining this with the deep industry experience of our professionals, we are further enhancing audit execution and quality, and generating valuable insights that can inform business decisions and meet the rapidly evolving demands of all stakeholders.”
Alessandro Miolo succeeds Thierry Aubertin, who successfully led the firm’s Audit & Assurance practice since 2015. Thierry will remain within the Audit & Assurance team, supporting Alessandro during the leadership transition and continuing to contribute to the transformation of Deloitte’s audit business. “I want to thank Thierry for the significant impact he has made whilst leading our Audit & Assurance business over the last four years,” says Simon Owen.
