WOW: Deloitte to Open Baghdad Office

Okay, file this under WTF, zOMG and STFU. Deloitte, the top-shelf global professional services firm, is taking a big step and opening an office in Baghdad. Yes, that one – the one in Iraq.

The office will open in Q1 2011. According to Iraqi Directory, the firm is also “working on an add-on acquisition to grow its Middle Eastern presence.” That is pretty wild. I used to complain about gigs in Tennessee and Nebraska. I don’t think I could wrap my head around this one.

Apparently, Deloitte has “many clients” in Iraq, mostly in oil and gas. The firm isn’t stopping in Baghdad: it’s also looking to increase its presence in Libya.

From the way the article is written, it looks like the move is mostly for the audit practice. So, I guess there’s no need to freshen up my ol’ consulting resume.
