Sir Digby Jones joins Deloitte

Departing CBI director general to serve as John Connolly's senior adviser

Sir Digby Jones, the director general of the CBI, is to join Big Four firm
Deloitte as a senior adviser to the firm’s chief executive and senior partner
John Connolly.

Jones will join Deloitte in the summer when he steps down as CBI director
general in June, after six-and-a-half years in the position. Jones will also
head up the Deloitte’s industries group.

After a spell as KPMG’s vice chairman of corporate finance, Sir Digby’s
appointment is something of a coup for Deloitte. Connolly said he was delighted
to have secured Jones’s services

Connolly said: ‘We are extremely pleased to announce Sir Digby’s appointment.
In his role as director-general of the CBI, Sir Digby has been widely recognised
for his superb representation of UK business, both in the UK and
internationally. Through his broad experience, personality and powerful
advocacy, he has been an important voice of both large and small business.’

He added: ‘In this new role with Deloitte, Sir Digby will be working with our
industry leaders and the lead partners responsible for major clients, ensuring
we continue to bring innovative ideas and value to our clients. Other
industry-specific appointments will follow in the future.’

Jones was also pleased about his new role at Deloitte. He said: ‘I am
delighted to be joining Deloitte and especially to take on a role which will
enable me to continue making a strong contribution to the success of UK
business.

‘The firm has a reputation for being solutions-orientated and I look forward
to contributing the business insights gained from my CBI experience to help
Deloitte clients succeed.’
