Kyiv, 1 October 2020
Yehor Hryhorenko, a professional with 20 years’ experience in consulting and financial services, becomes new head of the consulting practice at Deloitte Ukraine.
Deloitte is constantly increasing its professional potential by attracting first-class market specialists. We analyze business needs and create teams able to address the clients’ most complex business challenges.
“Making an impact that matters is at the heart of our mission and commitment that runs through all our actions. In these trying times and economic uncertainty, our direct task is to provide a reliable support to our clients and business in general. We are constantly changing ourselves and helping the companies we work with to transform and progress. From this perspective, consulting is one of the most important tools of our work. Thus, strengthening the Deloitte team by engaging highly professional leaders as Yehor is a logical and timely step. I am convinced that with the new experienced leader, our consulting team will become even more stronger and help our clients to build a sustainable business in the face of constant changes,” said Serhiy Kulyk, Managing Partner at Deloitte Ukraine.
Prior to joining Deloitte, Yehor worked in Bain&Company, a Big Three firm specialized in strategic consulting. He served as a partner, led financial practice in Eastern Europe, and was a member of private equity practice.
While at Bain, Yehor has launched and facilitated large-scale restructuring programs, led strategy design projects at the level of corporate center and separate business units, assisted clients in M&A-related projects as well as advised the leading financial services and private equity players on governance and organization issues.
During 2000-2007, Yehor worked in Citigroup, covering various bank activities in Ukraine, Russia, and Kazakhstan. During his time with Citi, he gained experience ranging from risk management and finance to strategy and business planning.
Yehor received his M.A. summa cum laude from the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy (EERC/KSE) in 2001. He is an author of several scientific publications, one of which was awarded a J. Michael Montias Prize by the Association for Comparative Economic Studies (USA). He also holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.
“Given the market needs, the Deloitte Ukraine’s consulting practice has the potential to at least double in the next 2-3 years, which is my main ambition as head of the department. It is important for me to create unique value for clients and help them to develop their business,” commented Yehor Hryhorenko.
The invitation of Yehor Hryhorenko to join Deloitte is not the only step that have been taken lately to strengthen the team. It will be recalled that in 2018, two powerful teams from other Big Four firms joined Deloitte Ukraine, namely Human Capital Advisory Services headed by Olena Boichenko, and Operational Transformation, which is now headed by Andriy Pavlenko.
Olena has over 16 years of experience in human capital consulting. She participated in various projects for domestic and foreign companies. Andriy has over 16 years of professional experience, of which six years he was engaged in management consulting for finance, retail, and food industry clients.
Nazar Farmaha leads the Deloitte Ukraine’s Finance&Performance practice. He has more than 14 years of experience in advising companies on improving finance function efficiency.
