Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
All the facts and figures that talk to our size and diversity and years of history, as notable and important as they may be, are secondary to the truest measure of Deloitte: the impact we make in the world.
So, when people ask, “What's different about Deloitte?”, the answer resides in the many specific examples of where we have helped Deloitte member firm clients, our people, and sections of society to achieve remarkable goals, solve complex problems or make meaningful progress. Deeper still, it's in the beliefs, behaviours and fundamental sense of purpose that underpin all that we do.
With over 150 years of hard work and commitment to making a real difference, our organisation has grown in scale and diversity—more than 263,000 people in 150 countries and territories, providing audit, tax, legal, financial advisory, risk advisory, and consulting services yet our shared culture remains the same
For us, good isn't good enough. We aim to be the best at all that we do to help clients realise their ambitions; to make a positive difference in society; and to maximise the success of our people. This drive fuels the commitment and humanity that run deep through our every action.
That's what makes us truly different at Deloitte. Not how big we are, where we are, nor what services we offer. What really defines us is our drive to make an impact that matters in the world.
The firm focuses on clients. We take great pride in our ability to provide quality services—whether our client is an owner managed business, a large multinational corporation or a governmental entity.
Deloitte continues to lead on the issues that matter, showing strength and decisiveness, and guiding clients through unprecedented levels of uncertainty. By responding to the needs of society, providing trust, supporting inclusive growth, and building the skills of our young people—we are certain we can make a difference. Over the year, we've contributed to policy debates at the highest levels, responding to various policy consultations, sharing our insight on leading issues.
The public sector plays a leading role in fostering inclusive local economies, and we are proud to support this crucial agenda. We continue to work with Government across various sectors and industries including iGaming, financial services, technology, media and telecommunications, tourism, and education. We are actively involved in high level policy affecting Government's contribution to economic momentum.
At a national policy level, two of the firm's directors are active participants in a consultative group set up under the auspices of the Ministry for Finance to advise the Government of Malta on fiscal policy matters. In addition, our top people are actively involved in a task force commissioned by the Government of Malta for the monitoring of developments globally in the field of international taxation as primarily driven by the work of the OECD in this area. During 2016, Deloitte Malta's practice was also engaged to advise the Malta Gaming Authority on tax matters in view of the significant developments which have occurred in the regulatory landscape with Gaming regulators, in a number of key European markets, shifting to taxation at the place of consumption.
The Malta firm continues to actively support and visibly participate in a number of key groups and professional bodies in Malta at a senior level. Our people occupy leadership roles and are active contributors to the work of the Institute of Financial Services Practitioners, the Malta Institute of Accountants, and the Malta Institute of Taxation. Our people are also actively present in the education of the next generation of talent and hold lecturing posts at universities, both local and foreign and within professional accreditation programmes such as those organised by the Malta Institute of Taxation and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).
