Deloitte in Jersey has further strengthened its leadership team with the promotion of Siobhan Durcan and Theo Brennand to the role of Partner.

The appointments recognise the opportunities for growth in the Channel Islands, which have been boosted by the increased capabilities and network created by the formation of the Deloitte North-South Europe firm.

Siobhan heads up Deloitte’s Channel Islands Real Estate Sector Group and leads on a number of international real estate, private equity, family office and asset management engagements.

She works closely with industry leaders in the UK and Europe, making her well placed not only to respond to global clients but also to shape the island’s response to crucial industry matters.

Originally from County Mayo in Ireland, Siobhan has worked in Deloitte Jersey’s audit team focusing on financial services for over 15 years. She has also played a critical role in leading and shaping Deloitte’s strategy on student recruitment and wellbeing;  her promotion reflects Deloitte’s continued focus on talent diversity at all levels of the business.

Before joining the Jersey team in 2017,  Theo had spent 15 years with Deloitte’s audit team in London, having grown up in Hong Kong.

As well as leading a portfolio of audit clients he has significant advisory experience, including operational change, regulatory reviews, service auditor reporting and internal audit.

As a Partner, Theo will lead Deloitte’s Private Equity and Asset Servicing groups in Jersey. His long-term connection with Deloitte’s London-based team and the wider North-South Europe network means he is well placed to steer clients through the increasing globalisation of this sector.

He says, ‘Our UK and European network gives our clients access to broader and deeper experience and efficiencies that are unparalleled in the Channel Islands.’
