LUTZ Heim, managing partner of Deloitte PNG, has announced the promotion of two partners.
He said: “We are very pleased to announce the promotion of John Wau and James Walker to partners with effect from July 1 this year.
“It gives us special pleasure to announce the promotion of a PNG citizen, John Wau, in our assurance and advisory division.
“John was part of our first graduate intake some years ago and it is fantastic to see a PNG citizen rising through the ranks by providing quality service on a continuing basis, year after year.
“John assists some of our largest and most significant clients and has earned the trust placed in him by his peers and his clients many times over.”
Heim said Wau’s promotion maintained Deloitte’s history of PNG citizens reaching the highest position in our firm.
Walker is a highly experienced corporate finance specialist who has been a partner of Deloitte in Europe and Southeast Asia.
Heim said Walker had worked on a number of major projects around the world including valuations, mergers and acquisitions and financing of public private partnerships for major infrastructure projects and the company was fortunate that he brought this expertise to PNG.
“These promotions reflect the firm’s confidence in PNG as a great and rewarding place to do business,” he said.
