Cook joins Deloitte as a Partner in its Programme Leadership Consulting team. The team supports businesses undergoing large scale infrastructure change programmes, covering a range of sectors and business line. Projects dealt with by the team include large technology rollouts, to delivering large scale sporting events, such as the Olympics. He will be based out of the firm’s London office.

Commenting on the appointment, Tim Parr, leader of Deloitte’s transformation business in consulting remarked, “Dominic has an excellent reputation in the market for delivering complex transformation programmes. He has strong commercial and practical expertise working on large contracts with complicated supply chains, which will complement Deloitte’s programme leadership business. We are really pleased to have such a senior leader join the team, and know clients will appreciate the enhanced experience he brings to the table.”

Dominic added, “Deloitte was a very attractive next step, particularly because of the firm’s reputation in the marketplace and its multi-disciplinary nature. The ability to draw on expertise from other parts of the firm – whether that be data specialists in technology consulting, regulatory experts in risk advisory, or real estate and restructuring professionals in financial advisory, globally – is hugely exciting.”

Last month, Deloitte appointed Andrew Carey as real estate technology practice lead, while RBS executive Richard Kibble joined the financial services wing of the Big Four firm.
