Radius names ex-Deloitte CEO John Connolly as chairman

JOHN CONNOLLY, the former global chairman and UK chief executive of Deloitte, has been appointed as chairman of US-based consultancy firm Radius.

Connolly was senior partner and CEO of Deloitte UK from 1999 until 2011. During that time, he was also Deloitte’s global managing director (2003-2007) and global chairman (2007-2011). He previously held leadership positions for Deloitte in the Middle East and in multiple UK offices.

Radius is headquartered in Boston, US, with offices in the UK, Brazil, China, India, Japan and Singapore.
