Connect for impact

It is with great pleasure that we introduce to you our twenty-two new partners. Read their introductions below to connect with them. Who knows what impact lies ahead?

Dear colleagues,

It makes me feel proud and optimistic about the future to see all of these colleagues and welcome them to our partner team, and to congratulate them with their promotion. They have experienced an intense and challenging promotion process, which they passed with flying colours. It's the crowning achievement after many years of making an impact on their teams and clients. I can imagine what an exciting time this is for all of them and I was happy to read that they celebrated this special moment with their loved ones.

In the introductions below, they have opened up to share their personal stories and their ambitious goals within their new role. Each story is unique, but also expresses something we all have in common: everyone feels the responsibility to build a better, more inclusive and connected Deloitte. I hope their stories will inspire you, as they have inspired me.

I look forward to working with them and to see what impact they will make in their new role.

Also on behalf of Liesbeth and Oscar,
