Helen Gale has been promoted to become a partner at Deloitte LLP. Based in Jersey, she will continue to head up the Deloitte offshore private equity group, which provides audit and advisory services to clients in that sector. Her promotion will strengthen the offshore practice and reflects Deloitte’s commitment to support their staff and deliver the best possible service for clients.
Helen studied International Management and Modern Languages at the University of Bath and is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. She specialises in the provision of audit and advisory services to the investment management industry and particularly focuses on the alternative investment sector.
Helen has been with Deloitte for over 16 years, working with the firm in Paris and London before joining the Jersey office 14 years ago.
In addition to her business role with Deloitte, Helen has worked closely with the London team to help devise and deliver a new flexible working approach that has recently been launched in the Channel Island’s offices. She also designed the Jersey Association of Directors & Officers (JADO) Women in Leadership Programme, which was introduced last year.
In her role as partner, Helen will continue to provide a high quality service for her clients, helping them to navigate through a changing economic and regulatory environment.
‘The economic outlook continues to improve and we are seeing demand strengthen in many areas of our business’ explains Helen Gale. ’Our ability to attract, retain and engage the very best talent is critical to our success and my priority is to continue to develop our exceptional people so that they not only make a real difference to our clients but also fulfill their own potential, making Deloitte a great place to work.’
Across the three offshore offices, Deloitte employs more than 160 professionals and over 14,000 in the UK.
David Becker, who is based in Deloitte’s Guernsey office, has also been promoted to become a partner.
Greg Branch, Managing Partner of Deloitte Offshore comments: ‘As a firm we are committed to investing in and developing our own talent as we believe it is a vital way to achieve sustainable success for both our clients and ourselves. These partner promotions further strengthen our offshore practice and our ability to serve our clients as well as helping our team achieve their ambitions.’
