DELOITTE HAS strengthened its global employer services practice by recruiting yet another partner.
Nicki Demby joins as the sixth partner in as many months. She will bolster the executive compensation team in that practice.
Demby, who started her career in Andersen, joins from consultancy Towers Watson where she was director of compensation advice. She has also held senior roles at Spencer Stuart and drinks manufacturer Diageo.
Matt Ellis, tax partner and head of the Global Employer Services at Deloitte, said: “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.”
The division is made up of more than 700 professionals including 30 partners.
In the last six months the other partners to join include; Nick Hipwell from Clifford Chance; John Lewis from Ernst & Young; James Macpherson from PwC; and Mitul Shah and James Warwick who were both promoted.
