BIG FOUR firm Deloitte has added nine staff members to its north west division, including two partners and seven directors.
John Cooper and Martin Krivinskas will both become partners at Deloitte, both having worked their way up the corporate ladder.
Cooper joined Deloitte as a graduate 18 years ago and advises on major city centre regeneration projects. His work has made a vital contribution to some of Manchester’s most transformative residential and commercial developments.
Krivinskas has worked in the firm’s tax division for almost six years with expertise in corporate and international tax issues.
The seven new directors are: Donna Baker, Helen Cadman and Paul Farr (all tax), Carl Acton, Helen Cutting and Michael Stallard (all audit and risk advisory) and Paul Greenall (consulting).
It seems that region has been crying out for more accountancy partners, as in June, top six firm BDO BDO announced the appointment of Ed Dwan to lead partner to oversee its operations in the north west of the country.
Richard Bell, practice senior partner at Deloitte in the North West, said: “I am extremely proud of our latest promotions. They have each made a significant contribution to our practice in the North West and continue to deliver exceptional results for our clients.
“As the North of England is gaining a more prominent position on the global stage, it is essential that we continue to invest in talent and develop our expertise across our service lines.”
Last month, Deloitte promoted a record number of women to partner as part of the firm’s efforts to increase diversity among its partner base.
The Big Four firm has added 80 new partners with effect from 1 June, 24 of which are women.
