Ormerod swaps Deloitte for offshore business
John Ormerod, the former UK managing partner at Andersen, has left his position at Deloitte to become chairman of Walbrook Group, the former offshore business of Deloitte.
Ormerod’s move was announced today to coincide with the launch of a new division of the group, Walbrook Tax Advisers.
The launch of the new arm and appointment of Ormerod builds on last December’s £50m management buyout.
At the time Bryan Dix, Walbrook’s chief executive, said he expected the group to be the leading provider of international fiduciary services within three years.
Ormerod was named Accountancy Age personality of the year in 2002 after leading Andersen UK into a deal with Deloitte (then Deloitte & Touche).
