Deloitte has announced a series of new appointments to its leadership team as part of its expansion plans.
Lisa Stott has been promoted as the firm’s new managing partner for tax and legal, while Jackie Henry is set to take over as managing partner for people and purpose.
Furthermore, Kirsty Newman has been appointed to the role of UK market chair.
From this month, Henry will provide leadership of Deloitte’s UK people strategy and purpose agenda, while Stott will be the first woman to lead Deloitte’s tax and legal service line as of June.
On her appointment, Henry said: “The last year has reminded us more than ever of the importance of putting people and purpose at the heart of our business.
“I am delighted to be appointed UK people and purpose managing partner. We are a people business and my priority is to put the voice of our people at the centre of our business strategy to deliver an impact that matters.”
Stott said: “It is a privilege to be leading Deloitte’s tax and legal teams. We will continue to focus on our clients’ needs by investing in our capabilities and building on our recent acquisitions of Kemp Little who joined our legal team and Kerr Henderson to our pensions teams.”
