Deloitte has appointed nine new partners following the completion of its acquisition of Keytree, an international technology consulting firm.
Some 400 Keytree employees join Deloitte consultancy practice from today (2 October), who are set to bring expertise in digital transformation, growing the size of Deloitte’ consulting division to 5,900 in the UK.
The merger of Deloitte and Keytree consulting capabilities will form the largest SAP-enabled transformation practice.
Anne-Marie Malley, managing partner for Deloitte’s consulting, said: ‘‘Our clients’ digital transformation programmes continue to grow at an ever larger and more complex scale.
‘‘Building our team will ensure that we can support our clients in these ambitious projects with an unrivalled breadth and depth of expertise.’’
She added: ‘‘Welcoming Keytree’s people, innovation and creativity into our practice at this pivotal time will magnify the impact that we can bring to our clients’ business by creating exciting capabilities for digital transformation at a global scale.’’
Dan McNamara, partner and CEO of Keytree, said: ‘‘Today marks a landmark moment in Keytree’s history as we join with Deloitte to create the UK’s largest SAP-enabled transformation practice.
‘‘It is particularly important that we are joining a firm that shares our principles of collaboration, inclusion, accountability, and integrity. This will ensure we retain an entrepreneurial culture while growing the enlarged business in a sustainable and innovative way.’’
He added: ‘‘I’m excited to be leading Keytree as a Deloitte business at a time when digital transformation is a key business priority for organisations across all industries.’’
