The seven new partners will be based across the mid-tier network’s Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney offices, and in various business lines.
Jarrod Morris has been appointed principal at Pitch Labs, a division of Pitcher Partners Adelaide, having joined the firm in 2020 as its innovation and technology lead.
Pitch Labs is an outsourced accounting and advisory service that utilises a subscription-based model, with the aim of encouraging clients to engage more frequently without the fear of a time-based bill.
Andrew Robin will become an audit and assurance partner at the firm’s Brisbane office.
Mr Robin joined Pitcher Partners in April 2020, having been with Deloitte for nearly 13 years.
Andrew Mitchell and Debbie Hung will bolster the partnership team at Pitcher Partners Melbourne in its private business and family advisory division.
Both Mr Mitchell and Ms Hung are internal elevations, having been with the firm for 13 and 17 years, respectively.
The firm’s Sydney office will welcome three new partners, including Andy Hough in its corporate finance division, Jyotika Rangel in private business and family advisory, and Paul Marino in tax advisory.
Mr Hough will join the mid-tier on 1 August from Deloitte, where he is currently principal of its corporate development team.
Ms Rangel’s appointment to partner comes after she first joined the firm as a graduate in 2006.
Mr Marino joined Pitcher Partners in 2008 after close to 10 years with big four firms PwC and Deloitte.
National chair of the Pitcher Partners association John Brazzale said client care would be front of mind for each new partner.
“Our network’s partnerships are tasked with leading the charge as we continue to advocate for the middle market to strengthen Australia’s engine room, evolve the way we look after our clients, and ensure our people are supported with their professional goals,” Mr Brazzale said.
“Recognising our new partners’ drive to making business personal, as they continue to navigate different challenges and seize on newfound opportunities, is important.
“Through the peaks and troughs of COVID-19, consistent client care has been, and is, at the heart of what they do.”
