Accenture has continued its raid on the partnership of Australia’s Big Four, appointing Deloitte senior leaders James Nunn-Price and Natasha Doherty as managing directors.

The latest recruitment coup comes as Accenture ANZ CEO and UK native Tara Brady departs the firm due to international travel restrictions, with Brady having strategically targeted headline talent from rival firms during his 14-month tenure. Deloitte in particular has been popular hunting ground for Accenture, with James Nunn-Price and Natasha Doherty the latest to cross.

James Nunn-Price

A two decade veteran at Deloitte and most recently the firm’s Asia Pacific Cyber & Strategic Risk leader, Nunn-Price will now serve as a senior managing director and head of Accenture’s cybersecurity Growth Markets practice (covering an expansive operational region excluding North America and Europe). A bachelor graduate in computer sciences with the University of Kent, Nunn-Price first joined Deloitte in the UK in 2000.

Prior to relocating with the firm to Sydney, Nunn-Price was responsible for Deloitte’s Cyber Security services within the UK and overall information security, resilience and cyber advisory services to the UK government, while in the Asia Pacific he led a cyber team in excess of 5,000 professionals. His new role with Accenture spans the firm’s cyber-defense, applied cybersecurity solutions and managed security services offerings.

Natasha Doherty

Joining Accenture as a managing director in the firm’s strategy and consulting practice, Doherty crosses after the past decade with Deloitte, where she served as a partner and director within the firm’s Health Advisory team under its Corporate Finance umbrella. Previously she was a senior data collections officer and health economist over five years with Queensland Health, before which she spent three years with the ABS as a Statistical Team Leader.

Doherty and Nunn-Price follow in the recent footsteps of former Deloitte trio Galia Jenshel, Mike Jones and Figen Mizrak in joining Accenture, along with numerous other senior leaders from the Big Four, including Strategy& partner Peter Burns – who has just been installed as Accenture’s new CEO for Australia and New Zealand.
