For the first time, Deloitte’s SAP practice in Denmark has a woman at its helm: Marianne Mia Jensen.

The worlds of enterprise resource systems (ERP) and more broadly IT consulting are known to be most male-dominated segments of the consulting industry. But in Denmark, this has not held back Big Four firm Deloitte to appoint a woman to take the reins of its SAP practice. 

Marianne Mia Jensen brings over fifteen years of experience in IT consultancy to the firm. Most recently, she was a Director at itelligence responsible for the firm’s products portfolio and financial reporting offerings, and in her first spell at the German-origin SAP specialist (a NTT DATA company), she gained extensive experience in leading and supporting SAP advisory and implementation projects. Her focus is on the areas of finance, process management and ecommerce.

Deloitte Denmark employs around 2,500 professionals across 19 offices, and its SAP practice sits within its 800-strong Deloitte Consulting division. The unit supports clients with SAP-enabled business transformations, spanning design and build work, implementation support, technical and functional expertise, as well as support and high-end managed services.Marianne Mia Jensen and David Egebjerg ColganHeading the SAP practice, Jensen has been tasked with further expanding its domestic footprint and client base. Globally, Deloitte is one of the leaders in SAP services, housing a team of nearly 20,000 practitioners in 100+ countries. The service offering is led by US-based partner Jan Waals, while the European footprint is headed by the German Peter Koerting. 

Commenting on the appointment, David Egebjerg Colgan, Deloitte’s SAP leader for the Nordics (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) said: “Marianne is a charismatic leader and has a wealth of experience that will benefit our clients along their transformation journeys as well as the rapidly expanding SAP practice.” 

“She will be instrumental in the further development of Deloitte’s Danish SAP capabilities and her experience in SAP S/4HANA Cloud transformation, S/4HANA Finance and Reporting complement Deloitte’s strong technology-enabled transformation consulting practice,” Colgan added, who previously served Accenture, PwC and IBM in their respective SAP consulting departments. 

Two weeks ago, Deloitte significantly boosted its SAP practice with the acquisition of Keytree. The move added around 400 employees to its roster across offices in the United Kingdom, India, Spain, Australia and Canada. 

Other technology vendors supported by Deloitte’s Danish organisation include Oracle, Salesforce, Apple, Google, Workday, Amazon and McLaren.
