Deloitte in the news
Cindy Hook shares her vision as Deloitte AP CEO
As part of the ACCA Accounting and Business magazine (February/March 2019 issue), Cindy Hook was asked to speak about her role as Deloitte Asia Pacific CEO and reflect on her previous leadership roles.
In 2015, Cindy became the first women in Australia to lead a Big Four professional services firm, and in 2018 took on the role of Deloitte Asia Pacific’s first ever CEO. She credits her family and upbringing as to why she never felt held back in her career. ‘One of the things that helped was being brought up in a family of all girls. My dad treated us all like anything’s possible and you can have whatever you want’, she said.
Cindy also attributes her success to mentors she met along the way. ‘The people who really made a difference to me were those who decided to give me exposure, opportunity and connections.’ She is excited to pay the support she’s received forward and bring up the next generation of leaders.
