Deloitte open a new member firm in Mongolia
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) has established a new member firm in Mongolia after reaching an agreement with leading local Mongolian professional services firm, Onch Audit. The new firm, Deloitte Onch LLC, will offer a full range of professional services, including audit, tax, consulting and financial advisory to clients in one of the world’s fastest growing economies.
Keith Jones, Deloitte Australia’s National Energy and Resources Leader, said the decision by the global firm to open a Mongolian office reflected a growing industry trend towards expanding into the world’s growth regions in the increasingly competitive search for natural resources.
“Mongolia is a fast-growing market in the Asia Pacific region and its significant reserves of natural resources is attracting some of the Australia and the world’s biggest mining companies to invest there. That interest is likely to intensify as the competition for resources heats up and mining companies are increasingly driven to seek out opportunities to establish projects in developing regions,” Mr Jones said.
“In addition to adding a new firm to our vast global network, we are delighted to be expanding in what is fast becoming a critical market for the Asia Pacific region, and the global economy as a whole,” said Barry Salzberg, Global CEO, DTTL. “By combining the deep local knowledge of Onch Audit with specialist expertise from Deloitte member firms, the network is well-positioned to help new and existing clients in Mongolia become leaders in their market or advance their existing market leadership.”
The new member firm will continue to be led by founder Onchinsuren (Onch) Dendevsambuu, a former senior auditor at Arthur Andersen and Ernst & Young in Ulaanbaatar and Moscow, with 15 years of experience in audit, tax and advisory, serving both multi-national companies and local clients.
“This is a very exciting time for the new Deloitte member firm in Mongolia,” said Onchinsuren. “We are proud to be joining a network so respected for its world class service, innovation, and ethics. With the support of a global network of member firm specialists, I am confident Deloitte member firms can continue to exceed clients’ expectations.”
Onch Audit LLC (Onch Audit) was founded in January 2004 and has since become a leading firm in the region. The Deloitte Onch LLC office currently employs a staff of 50 with plans to recruit an additional 15 over the coming months.
