Aronson joins Deloitte’s sustainability services group from IBM, where he gained experience merging corporate with social responsibility consulting for IBM’s strategy and transformation practice and served as global offering leader for sustainability strategy.
Madsen is a former employee of Environmental Resource Management, where he was in charge of the supply-chain sustainability, life-cycle assessment and carbon footprinting practice of ERM’s North American sustainability and climate-change team.
The new employees are the latest in a series of recent hires, a result of Deloitte’s acquisitions of ClearCarbon and DOMANI, which have enabled the company to focus on becoming a leading sustainability services provider.
“Our focus is on working with clients to further embed sustainability into everything they do, helping companies drive growth and innovation, mitigate risk, reduce cost and improve brand — using energy, water, resources and emissions as levers for creating value,” said Chris Park, a principal with Deloitte Consulting and national leader of Deloitte’s sustainability services group.
“Expanding our ‘A’ team reinforces the importance of these issues for many of our clients, and our belief that financially responsible environmental and social performance will increasingly drive investor, customer and business partner decision-making,” he added.
Former DOMANI and ClearCarbon CEOs have also joined Deloitte’s team as a result of the merge. Will Sarni, of DOMANI, is a director with Deloitte Consulting LLP, while former ClearCarbon CEO Kyle Tanger joined Deloitte’s sustainability services group in mid-December.
