Tasmanian firm Davern Dixon and Adelaide firm
mhm have merged with Deloitte Australia.

Davern Dixon will join the Deloitte Launceston office on 1
June.

The combined office will have 60 staff, which Deloitte said will
make it one of the largest in northern Tasmania.

Devon Dixon managing partner Peter Dixon said the decision to
join Deloitte was due to an increase in demand for the firm’s
services.

“This move by our partners and staff to Deloitte will provide
clients with access to a wider variety of technical and operational
expertise as part of a national firm,” Dixon said.

Mhm is a South Australian firm with 13
partners, 130 staff and offices in Adelaide, Perth and Hong
Kong.

Mhm specialises in audit, tax and consulting
services and Deloitte said the combined firm will be the most
dominant IT and business consulting practice in South Australia
with 28 partners and more than 340 staff.

Mhm managing partner and chief executive John
Hood said the union will give staff more career opportunities,
enhanced the firm’s systems and processes, and provide a more
comprehensive service offering.
