Deloitte has made a number of changes across the senior leadership team, including the appointment of John Clacy to the role of Partner in Charge of Offshore.
The business will continue to run on a combined, one-practice basis with Mr Clacy dividing his time between the two islands.
Greg Branch remains Partner in Charge of the Jersey office working alongside the leadership group which is comprised of Andy Isham, Helen Gale, Siobhan Durcan, Marc Cleeve and Kathryn Wintle who is responsible for the Jersey tax team.
Jo Huxtable, Tax Partner, will take on the Channel Islands leadership role for talent. Alex Adam, Advisory Director, will take on operational leadership for advisory across both islands.
Mr Clacy has managed the Guernsey business since 2014. He started work with Deloitte as a graduate in 1994 and last summer marked his 25th year with the company.
‘It is both an exciting and challenging time in the Channel Islands,’ comments Mr Clacy. ‘World events, huge consumer shifts, financial disruption and regulation and transparency are all challenges that Deloitte’s clients face and the offshore teams have expertise and agility to help our clients navigate and capitalise on change. I welcome the challenge ahead, knowing that the talent within our Jersey and Guernsey offices is first class.’
Mrs Huxtable’s role as Partner in Charge of Talent will span both islands with a focus on continuing to build exciting recruitment and career opportunities for students and experienced professionals. She also leads the Channel Islands tax teams, advising on a range of sectors including funds, banking, real estate and private equity, and is involved in commenting on tax policy in both islands.
Mr Adam leads the development of restructuring, transactions, regulation and controls offerings across the breadth of the financial services industry in the islands and will continue working closely with Jersey-based partner Andrew Isham.
