Mid-tier accounting and consulting network Moore has named Australian chair David Tomasi as its global leader for Energy, Mining and Renewables, one of five new global segment leaders.

David Tomasi has been tasked with driving the growth of Moore’s Energy, Mining and Renewables practice., and brings three and a half decades of professional experience to the newly created role, having started out his career with Deloitte merger partner Touche Ross in 1986.

Tomasi joined Moore Stephens – since rebranded as simply Moore – as a partner in Perth in 2015, before being appointed office managing partner three years on. Prior to crossing, Tomasi spent more than 15 years in the partnership of accounting rival UHY Haines Norton, where he headed the audit division and served as chair of the Perth office. Earlier, he gained international experience with Lloyds in London.

Over the course of his career, Tomasi has gained extensive experience across a range of industries, including (in addition to energy, mining, and renewables) agriculture, building, construction and the public sector, with audit and assurance, business advisory, valuations, corporate finance, and M&A among his many areas of expertise. In addition to chairing Moore Australia, Tomasi also serves as a member of the Moore Global board.

He has now been tasked with promoting and positioning the energy, mining and renewables practice within the market, driving growth, and supporting collaboration within the network. In response, Tomasi said it was a great honour: “I look forward to leading this sector group and working with my talented colleagues from around the globe, especially at a time when the challenge for the sector has never been greater.”

Commenting on the appointment, Moore Global CEO Anton Colella said, “At the heart of our strategy we aim to be the world’s most respected professional services network, and to drive that business strategy forward and lead our global community we need an exceptional leadership team. David has already proven his dedication to supporting our business growth and I’m confident that within his new role he will continue to shape our business.”

With combined revenues in excess of $3 billion and a headcount of 30,000-plus across more than 500 offices worldwide, Moore hovers on the edge of the top ten largest networks of its kind (tenth-placed Baker Tilly crossed the $4 billion mark last year, while HLB pulled in $3.3 billion). According to data from two years ago, revenues in Australia were around $80 million, with 350-plus employees, placing it within the top twenty locally.

Appointed to the newly created global leadership roles alongside Tomasi were; Dan Natale of Canada for Real Estate and Construction; Moore’s UK chair Graham Tyler to head up Media; Mark Fagan of Moore US member Citrin Cooperman & Company as global leader for Manufacturing and Distribution; and Costas Constantinou, Managing Partner of Moore Greece, who will lead Moore Global’s international Maritime practice.
