The international accounting form Deloitte will close it Alice Springs office on September 30 but says it will serve its clients in The Centre via its Darwin office.
A spokeswoman says “the majority” of staff have been offered redeployment.
The manager of the Alice office, Neil McLeod is also the chairman of the local Chamber of Commerce whose motto is being “The Voice of Territory Business”.
But Mr McLeod failed to be vocal about the developments within the business he heads up, not responding to questions from the Alice Springs News.
We received a reply from the company’s media office which said: ‘We have made the decision to consolidate our operations in the Northern Territory into our Darwin office.
“Accordingly the lease for our Alice Springs office, due to expire at 30 September 2020, will not be renewed.
“We will continue to serve clients in Alice Springs through our Darwin office, with the majority of staff in Alice Springs offered redeployment opportunities to our Darwin office.
“We are in the process of talking to our clients about these developments.”
