Deloitte Asia Pacific will include the Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand and Southeast Asia. It will be led by current Deloitte Australia chief executive Cindy Hook, who will officially transition by September this year.
The move, which has been in the works for months, is a bid to better penetrate a global market of private clients.
In a statement today, Deloitte Australia also announced revenue in Australia finished at $2.013 billion for FY18, 15 per cent up on the previous financial year.
Ms Hook said Deloitte Australia’s consulting practice remains the firm’s “powerhouse,” supported traditional service lines of audit, tax and risk advisory.
