Deloitte hires new partner from Alvarez & Marsal in its value creation team
21 March 2016
Mo Habbas, a former senior director with the professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal, joins the value creation team at Deloitte as a partner today. He has spent his career focusing on providing operational improvement support to private equity clients such as Advent, Charterhouse and EQT.
At Deloitte he will be joining the value creation team, which supports both corporate and private equity houses. The team provides operational due diligence before deals take place, as well as the delivery of value post deal.
Jason Caulfield, who heads the Deloitte value creation team comments: “We aim to deliver performance improvements to our clients’ acquisitions, not just for private equity houses, but also for corporates who have the advantage of integration synergies. Mo brings with him over 18 years of experience in this field as well as a specialism in turnaround of under-performing businesses and driving improvements in profitability and cash working capital.”
Mo Habbas added: “I look forward to starting at Deloitte and engaging with private equity and corporate clients in this expanding field. This is a market leading team, backed by a powerful brand name.”
The appointment of Mo Habbas follows the recruitment of Jan Rattay, formerly of EY, who joined as a partner in late 2015. Jan has over 12 years of experience with private equity clients and at Deloitte he supports clients on operational due diligence and value creation services.
