Deloitte UK’s chief executive and senior partner has become a trustee of the
International Business Leaders
John Connolly was drafted onto the IBLF board, which counts senior private
sector leaders as members.
The trustees advise the IBLF, an independent, not-for-profit organisation
currently supported by over 100 of the world’s leading businesses, on achieving
its mission of putting business at the heart of sustainable development.
Connolly said, ‘I’m delighted to join the IBLF Board which works with
business, governments and civil society to enhance the contribution that
companies can make to sustainable development. As a responsible business,
Deloitte in the UK and across member firms around the world, is already playing
its part to enhance the communities in which our people work and live – keeping
focused on the challenges of globalisation will continue to be a focus for me in
this new role.’
Since 1990, and with the support of IBLF President, HRH The Prince of Wales,
the forum has provided strategic advice to businesses in more than 90 countries.
