Deloitte has appointed Jason Salzetti to lead its government and public services practice, succeeding Mike Canning.
A principal at Deloitte Consulting LLP and a member of Deloitte’s U.S. board of directors, Salzetti has nearly 30 years’ experience as a trusted adviser and technology leader.
Most recently, he led Deloitte’s integrated state, local and higher education practice as it scaled to help clients meet the unprecedented demand for services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The GPS practice has more than 26,000 professionals providing consulting, risk and financial advisory services to hundreds of clients.
“It’s an honor to lead a team that consistently demonstrates Deloitte’s commitment to the mission of our clients and the people they serve,” Salzetti said. “We will continue to leverage the depth and breadth of Deloitte’s capabilities across industries to serve our clients with excellence and integrity and be the trusted advisors they rely upon to help address their mission-critical business priorities.”
Salzetti began his career at Deloitte and has worked across a range of industries. In 2010, he was selected to lead Deloitte’s work with California, overseeing one of the organization’s largest state clients and one of the country’s largest university systems.
For the past 12 years, Salzetti has been focused on mission-centric client work, leading large-scale digital transformation projects that modernized public sector organizations and enhanced citizen services.
“Understanding the complexity of services, the changing nature of how our clients must provide them and then figuring out the best path forward is second-nature to Jason,” said Dan Helfrich, chair and CEO of Deloitte Consulting LLP.
“Jason’s deep technical experience coupled with his humanity and ability to build highly effective teams will continue to help our government and higher education clients tackle their most difficult challenges and differentiate Deloitte in the marketplace.”
