Deloitte strengthens Scottish practice with new promotions

Deloitte announces three new partners and six directors in Scotland

DELOITTE has appointed three new partners and six directors across its three offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.

Chris Hunter, Matt Smith and Michael Magnay are among Deloitte UK’s 80 new partners, in the firm’s largest-ever round of promotions – topping 2015’s 75. Deloitte now has 35 partners and 45 directors in Scotland.

Combined, the new partners and directors have more than 110 years’ experience with the firm, advising clients on a range of tax, risk and audit matters.

With over 14 years’ experience, Chris Hunter has a wealth of expertise in audit for the financial services and oil and gas sectors. Based in Edinburgh, Chris leads the firm’s audit service for a range of asset management and investment fund clients.

Matt Smith currently leads Deloitte’s tax depreciation team in Scotland and the North, advising businesses across the energy, resources, infrastructure and real estate sectors on the tax relief available for capital projects. During his 17 years with the firm, he has advised many of the region’s largest companies in these industries.

Having recently moved to Edinburgh to join Deloitte’s Scottish restructuring team, Michael Magnay has spent a total of 15 years with the firm across the North of England. Michael has a range of expertise in business turnaround, insolvency and corporate restructuring, including a 13-month secondment with a major clearing bank.

Steve Williams, senior partner for Scotland and Northern Ireland at Deloitte, said: “This latest round of promotions underlines our investment in, and commitment to, Scotland. It’s also a reflection of the strength, depth and quality of the people we have within the firm throughout the country.”
