Last month, we shared with you the concerns of a Deloitte partner who has a lot of issues with the processes around electing the firm’s leadership. As the partner explained it to us, “The elected individuals are the Chairman, the CEO, and a CEO ‘Alternate.’ The CEO ‘Alternate’ is there in the event that the CEO elect is also elected as the Global CEO (which will typically happen).”
Recently, we were able to confirm the candidates and thought we’d share them with all of you since some of you might not be aware of who they are:
• Punit Renjen, for Chairman of Deloitte LLP (Current CEO of Deloitte Consulting)
• Barry Salzberg, for CEO of Deloitte LLP (Current CEO of Deloitte LLP)
• Joe Echeverria, for CEO Alternate (Current Managing Partner of U.S. Operations)
What’s not immediately known is when Deloitte partners will be voting “Yes or No” on these candidates. One of our sources speculated that the vote could be as early this week.
In our previous post, we learned that the partners vote up or down on these candidates as a group as the partner in our last post explained “The partners get to vote ‘YES or NO’ on the ‘slate’ of candidates that is advanced.” Since we know a lot of you out there in Internetland are Deloitte employees but not partners, we thought we’d get your perspective on this slate of candidates and whether you would give them a “Yes” or “No.” And since the comments box allows for further explanation, feel free to elaborate on your vote. We know of one person who will be voting no.
A message left with Deloitte spokesperson Jonathan Gandal was not immediately returned.
