Deloitte has named Anne-Marie Malley as its new managing partner for consulting in the UK.
She takes over from Richard Houston following his election to senior partner and chief executive of Deloitte NSE and UK.
Malley is the first woman to hold the position at the firm, having led Deloitte’s human capital consulting practice since 2011. In this role, she worked with some of the firm’s largest clients to implement business transformation projects and develop strategies for the future of work.
She has over 20 years’ experience within the consulting industry and started her career in the financial services sector, spending three years at the Royal Bank of Scotland in the operations functions. She joined Arthur Andersen in 1996 before transitioning to Deloitte in 2001. Malley became a partner at Deloitte in 2005.
Houston said: “Anne-Marie has a proven track record of being a bold and visionary leader and is keenly focused on our clients’ success. I know she will bring the same enthusiasm and dedication to her new role and reinforce our leading position in delivering digital transformation programmes for our clients.”
Malley added: “Organisations across the UK are having to navigate significant obstacles and market developments. By tackling these issues head on, organisations can achieve their business objectives, whether that is to remain globally competitive, attract and retain the best people, benefit from emerging technologies or future-proof the skills of their workforce.
“Consultancy plays a crucial role in helping businesses solve challenges and grasp new opportunities, and I look forward to leading a dynamic team that aims to bring about a positive change throughout business and society.”
