Deloitte names new partner in expanding practice

LONDON -- Deloitte, the business advisory firm, has appointed Nicki Demby as a partner to its expanding Global Employer Services practice. Nicki is the sixth partner appointment to the team in six months.

Matt Ellis, Tax Partner and Head of the Global Employer Services group at Deloitte, comments: “The Global Employer Services group at Deloitte comprises a market-leading team of over 700 professionals, 30 of whom are partners. Our extensive expertise in the area of global mobility, tax and remuneration has been hugely complimented by the appointment of these six new partners during the past six months, and we’re delighted to welcome them on board.

“Businesses face numerous human capital challenges at the current time, whether this is the complexity of doing business on a global scale or the increasing importance of emerging markets, there is a clear competitive need to find flexible, commercial solutions that reward and motivate employees to respond to these opportunities. At the same time, all employers need to satisfy the business demand for cost efficiency whilst meeting the vast and complex regulatory and tax requirements in each of the local jurisdictions in which they operate.”
