Rennie has brought in Dan Sunderland to lead the firm’s newly established Sydney office.

Operating with offices in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth, Rennie’s latest locale sees the consulting firm inaugurate its fourth office just two years after opening for business. Today, Rennie has just under 40 people working across five service lines: strategy, capital advisory, business advisory, ESG, and policy & reform.

“Rennie’s vision is to become a leading advisory firm by 2027 in the Australian market, and I am looking forward to growing the Sydney office strongly across all of the service lines over the next 12-18 months,” said Sunderland.

“We are very pleased to welcome Dan to the firm as a leader in our newly established Sydney office,” said Rennie managing director, Simone Rennie.

“Dan brings the benefit of significant corporate and government roles through his roles with Optus and with the Australian Government, and his consulting experience in manufacturing, construction, water, healthcare, aged care, health insurance, mining services, financial services and technology will greatly broaden our offerings into new areas which are so critical to the evolution of a sustainable Australian economy.”

Appointed an Executive Director and a member of the executive leadership team, Sunderland will alongside his Sydney office mandate also be responsible for broadening the firm’s strategy offering into the health, telecommunications and major industrial sectors.

Sunderland joins Rennie from Mainsheet Capital, a strategy and transactions advisory specialist, where he was an Executive Director for four years. Before that, he spent eight years as a consultant with PwC and Mainsheet, and nine years leading customer and digital transformation strategy at Optus and the Department of Human Services.

Specialising in customer-led growth strategy, performance improvement and transactions, Sunderland’s practice areas include scenario planning, growth strategy, customer experience, customer value propositions, digital experience, strategic sourcing, acquisition strategy, investment decision analysis, and commercial due diligence.
