Total revenue vs. market growth: 2005-2009Deloitte Australia has grown revenue by 11 percent to
A$854 million ($689 million) in the year to 31 March 2009. The firm
appointed 38 new partners and accepted 500 graduates to cap off a
respectable financial year in spite of a turbulent market.

Deloitte chief executive Giam Swiegers said
that the firm’s corporate reorganisation group exceeded
expectations with 49 percent growth.

“Agility, innovation and being responsive to
changing market conditions helped drive this growth. This included
getting out early to clients with a programme to manage their
business in volatile times and our granular approach to performance
using a cluster based growth strategy,” Swiegers said.

“Our consulting practice, already the largest
‘pure’ management consultancy in Australia, had a very strong
result with growth of 24 percent driven in particular by
significant activity in the energy and mining sectors and an
increasing share in the financial services industries as
operational and technology costs came under the spotlight,” he
added.

“Our commitment to growing our audit and
advisory practice, representing 25 percent of our firm revenues,
resulted in growth of 11 percent, notwithstanding tough market
conditions.”

The most active industry sectors for the firm
were the energy, infrastructure and resources group, which
increased business 32 percent, and the public sector and
not-for-profit groups, which achieved growth of 34 percent.
