Monitor Deloitte, the international consulting firm that operates as a subsidiary of professional services provider Deloitte, has tapped two of its rising star executives for partnership roles in France. Both have already cultivated extensive careers with the company and will bring their healthcare prowess to their new positions.
Jessica Weddle has served the firm for a decade -- since the days it was known as Monitor Group, before Deloitte's 2013 takeover. She is certainly a natural fit for Deloitte’s French division, having moved from the US to the firm’s Paris headquarters in 2017. Presently, Weddle is a partner in its Life Sciences deployment. She is known for her expertise in organization design, strategy execution, virtual health, and much more.
The second added partner, Thibault Ducarme, is a career loyalist for the firm. His origins also pre-date the Deloitte transition. Like Weddle, he spent time in the New York office before making the trip to Paris to become a director in 2017. This new partner will bring his specialized client support to healthcare consultation. Ducarme has qualifications in business model design, market access, risk management, and pharmaceutical and biotechnology landscape with strategy.
Weddle and Ducarme augment Monitor Deloitte’s 120-person staff in France, which is overseen by Managing Partner Stéphane Bazoche. These partner promotions in Europe follow Deloitte Australia’s acquisition of strategy and venture building consultancy firm Fusion Labs, and more recently, the asset purchase of California-based cloud security management provider CloudQuest.
The latter deal is a definite boost to Deloitte’s cybersecurity forays. Deborah Golden, U.S. Cyber and Strategic Risk Leader for Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory, said, "We see incredible opportunity in novel approaches that help organizations securely transform and operate while also realizing competitive advantage -- and we're continually investing to bring the most innovative solutions to our clients. Our acquisition of CloudQuest represents our profound commitment to transforming alongside our clients, competing vigorously in the market, and aggressively building out tech-enabled approaches that position Deloitte cyber as an unquestionable business enabler."
CloudQuest’s system defense proficiency will enhance Deloitte’s Cyber Cloud platform with SOAR solutions. This is the second cyber acquisition for Deloitte this year; the firm has also picked up threat hunting service Root9B. Deloitte has made over ten acquisitions since early 2019.
