22 November 2017 Consultancy.uk

Telecoms industry consultancy Delta Partners has appointed a new partner in its New York office and promoted a partner in Dubai. Mark Fleming and Borja Lopez both find themselves at new positions with Delta, having previously served with global consulting group Accenture.

Earlier in 2017, global telecoms, media and digital advisory firm Delta Partners opened a new New York City office, as the company sought to further cement its presence in North America. In addition to Delta’s office in San Francisco, which remains focused on bridging Silicon Valley’s tech players with telecom and media market incumbents around the globe, the new office, located in Manhattan’s  iconic MetLife building, was targeted at growing the company’s management consulting presence in the US and Canada.

Now, the firm has further expanded its NYC presence, with the appointment of Mark Fleming as a Partner of the firm, based in the new office. Fleming has over 25 years of experience advising and partnering with c-suite and board level clients within both global and emerging high-growth communications, media, and technology firms. He has worked with them to deliver critical strategic, operational and transformative initiatives. 

Prior to joining Delta Partners, Fleming was CEO of Longacre Advisors, a management consultancy operation that he founded in 2012. Previously, he also spent 13 years at Accenture, where he latterly held the position of Managing Partner in both North America and EMEA, before and subsequent to its' $1.7 billion IPO. Before that, Fleming held the position of Partner and Vice President at professional services firm Capgemini. He is a graduate of the University of Chicago, holding an MBA in Marketing.

Commenting on Mark's appointment, Andrew Snead, Managing Partner of Delta Partners North America said, "We are very pleased to welcome Mark to the team. He brings a wealth of sector-specific and global experience that will undoubtedly be relevant to our clients as we continue to help guide them through this chapter of tech-led disruption." 

Remarking on his new role at Delta Partners, Mark Fleming added, "I am very excited to join this unique platform. From my own experience, sector-specialization is fundamental to bringing deep insight and value to clients and Delta Partners has clearly established a unique set of TMD capabilities." 

Middle East 

Delta also bolstered its operations in the UAE, meanwhile, rewarding Boja Lopez for his efforts in the firm’s regional office with a promotion to the rank of Partner. In his new role, Lopez will focus on leading strategy consulting projects in the Middle East and CIS countries within the business, whilst being based in the Dubai office. 

Having previously also worked as a senior consultant at Accenture, Borja Lopez arrived at Delta Partners in March 2007 as a Senior Associate, and was one of the key contributors to the company’s growth until 2013, while also accelerating his career and becoming a Principal. During these more than six years, Lopez led projects across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. 

Following this, Borja served as Managing Director of Strategy, Digital and Investments at GreenApple in Kazakhstan, where he helped spearhead and devise the telecom and digital strategy for more than 10 telecom and digital companies, with 2,000+ employees in CIS countries. He has also headed and led the creation of three successful digital start-ups, Dar, Crediton and Halva, in Kazakhstan. Lopez returned to the Delta Partners fold in January 2017 as Associate Partner before the promotion to his current role.

Commenting on Borja Lopez’s promotion Victor Font, CEO, Delta Partners, said that internal promotions at the firm were an essential ingredient of its success, stating, “One of the greatest things Delta Partners offers to all employees is a meritocratic career in advisory and investments in an exciting industry, which is reshaping our world and our lives completely. We are especially proud when we can prove this by announcing an internal promotion to the partnership. It’s a pleasure and honour to announce Borja’s promotion to Partner, which also marks the 18th internal promotion to the partnership since we founded the firm in 2006.”

Despite slowing economic activity due to rises in oil prices, Dubai has remained an area of major expansion for many consulting industry players. Most recently this saw FTI Consulting add experienced advisor Yaser Dajani to their Middle East office from risk consultancy Kroll.
