According to Sebastian Stevens, Head of the Advisory team in Sydney (Corporate Finance, Consulting, Forensics, Risk Advisory and Business Restructuring), Prasad’s appointment bolsters the firm’s technology capabilities at a time of heightened demand for digital transformation services.

This team works closely with chief information officers (CIOs), chief data officers (CDOs) and IT executives throughout the technology life cycle to define IT operating models and redesign and implement technology architecture, ultimately enabling enhanced business performance. We can also help to identify and manage technology risk.” 

Commenting on his new challenge, Prasad said, “I’m looking forward to partnering with marque clients and working with an incredibly talented team to design and deliver technology and digital innovations,  maximise efficiencies and minimise risk.”
