Life at Deloitte
Introducing our new partners
At the beginning there were only the foundations of a newly emerging department, within four years we have succeeded in building a thriving advisory unit for the financial sector as well as three brand new specialised advisory teams. This was all possible thanks to Milan Kulhánek, who becomes a Deloitte partner on 1 June 2017.
What does it mean in practice? He is responsible for the area of shared services centres, strategic HR, robotic process automation and change management. His task is to develop strategic partnerships and continue building Deloitte’s position home and abroad. To look for new areas of interest for strategic HR, including the use of data analytics and start-ups.
“If you start doing something that you enjoy at least 60%, then you will probably do it well. But becoming a partner is not the main goal for everyone, some people want to be technical experts in a particular area. In my case, a lot was down to personal motivation, I persisted in wanting to do mostly things that are close to me. I was able to do this, and that subsequently brought success.”

Three questions for Milan Kulhánek
Can you remember your beginnings at Deloitte?
I came here with the objective to build the financial sector advisory in Consulting into a slightly different form and expand it significantly. Deloitte combines business environment and strong brand with local presence, which gave us brand new opportunities.
What have you and your team achieved during that time?
We now have strong teams that do technological implementations, Salesforce or robotics. In four years we have managed to hire more than 60 people into Consulting. What is great about Deloitte is that if you have a good idea and are able to elaborate it in detail, you can start working on it fully and realise practically anything here.
What changes does the new position bring?
Greater responsibility. I will cooperate more within the Deloitte Central Europe region, which is an interesting growth potential for us even beyond its borders – I will try to significantly develop Deloitte’s cross-border cooperation across various fields.
