Deloitte Lithuania has a new leader
1st of June marked “a new era” for Deloitte Lithuania as a newly appointed Country Leader, Kristine Jarve, commences her work.
Kristine is Deloitte Baltic Partner since 2015 and Deloitte Estonia country leader as well as Partner in Charge of Tax since 2019. Prior to that Kristine has worked for 10 years in another professional services firm in Latvia and further 4 years in London in a Global role and has very strong leadership background.
As a new Country leader, I will focus mainly on fostering leadership teamwork in business development activities, working on innovative & integrated offerings as well as enhancing Deloitte Lithuania talent pool even further, mentions Kristine.
As a Country Leader in Estonia, Kristine has been successful in bringing innovation and technology to Deloitte practice. Deloitte Central Europe innovation division – Deloitte Next - has chosen exactly Estonia as its only technological and start – up oriented hub outside of headquarters in Prague so far.
We are aiming at bringing Deloitte Lithuania also to the next level in terms of technological advancement, new innovative products and digitalization expertise. Thus, Kristine’s choice as a Country Leader seemed a very logical one, since she proved the exact skills we need, whilst working as Estonian Country leader. In addition, she already proved her “distance leadership skills", successfully managing Deloitte Estonia office, not being physically present everyday, says Igor Rodin, Deloitte Baltics Managing Partner.
As a final restructuring phase, Deloitte Lithuania has significantly increased operational capacity of the department heads and directors so that to ensure stronger connection between clients and professionals and allowing practice to become more agile.
Previous Deloitte Lithuania Country Leader, Saulius Bakas, who is leaving the Firm as of 1 June 2020, has been Lithuanian Country Leader from 2012, significantly increasing not only audit quality in Lithuania, but also overall Deloitte brand eminence on the market.
