Deloitte is today announcing new additions to its leadership team with Lisa Stott joining as the new managing partner for tax and legal and Jackie Henry taking over as managing partner for people and purpose. In addition, Kirsty Newman has been appointed as UK market chair.
Effective from 1 June, Lisa Stott will be the first woman to lead Deloitte’s tax and legal service line. She has been at the firm for 32 years, advising and supporting clients, and was most recently global lead for international tax and business tax advisory.
Lisa 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.”
Richard Houston, senior partner and Chief Executive, said: “I have no doubt that the wealth of experience and expertise Kirsty, Jackie and Lisa will bring to their new positions and the leadership of the UK firm will further reinforce our inclusive culture and our purpose of making a positive impact on clients, our people and wider society.”
