Quintin McGrath is a passionate leader, a global team builder and an energetic change agent. He joined Deloitte over 20 years ago in South Africa as their first CIO. In late 2001, he moved with Deloitte to the USA as part of the first Global CIO’s leadership team. Over the years, he has led various global technology programs, eventually leading the Global Application Development team for 8 years. In 2015, he initiated the transition of Deloitte to becoming a shared services-based organization and he now leads a team that is driving a more agile and responsive Deloitte Global IT. This includes driving global Enterprise Architecture, Innovation, Quality and Change. He is a long-standing member of Deloitte’s Global Technology Executive team.
Quintin began his career as a network engineer with South African Telecom. Then, as the first CIO of the South African Post Office after its split from the telecom organization, he built the organization from scratch, starting with simply a check in his hand. He later became the Founder and CEO of an Internet solutions provider, Q-Data Internet, after a short stint as a Business Consultant for a large IT Solutions house.
Quintin is an Electronic Engineer by profession, holding an MS Degree in Engineering from the University of Cape Town. He also has a Business Leadership MBA from the University of South Africa. As a proponent of life-long learning, he is currently reading for an MA from Wheaton College in Chicago, focusing in part on effective cross-cultural leadership and communication.
Along with his determination for personal growth, he is obsessed with developing the people around him, and especially the next generation of millennial leaders.
