Deloitte acquires consulting firm
Seventeen Global IO employees will be joining Deloitte's practices in Australia, Canada and Chile.

Deloitte has acquired Perth-founded Global IO, which will join the company’s consulting practices in Australia, Canada and Chile.

Established in 2014, Global IO is a business management consultant based in Perth, with consultants also working in Montreal, in Canada, and in Santiago, Chile.

Seventeen Global IO employees will be joining Deloitte upon the acquisition.

Global IO principal Pieter Lottering will join Deloitte Australia, while director Eamonn Treacy will be part of the Canadian firm and partner Dominic Collins will join the Chile firm.

Mr Collins said the move was a great opportunity for the company to better serve its clients.

“We’re now able to increase our efforts in areas like change, management, digital strategy and analytics, and deliver dependable services our customers, and Deloitte’s, have come to expect,” he said.

Deloitte said it had successfully collaborated with Global IO on several large engagements with key clients.

The company's chief executive in Canada, Anthony Viel, said Global IO's reputation in the energy and resources and mining sectors would be a key differentiator for Deloitte.

"(Global IO's) credibility will allow us both to expand our efforts and provide dependable services to our clients from start to finish in a more agile and deliberate way," he said.

Deloitte Canada partner and consultant Sébastien Blais said the acquisition would create a one-stop shop for the firm's E&R and mining sectors.

“Its team’s deep operational expertise, complemented by our broad business transformation capabilities, will greatly benefit our clients both present and future,” he said.
