Ex-Andersen head quits Deloitte

Fred Hallsworth, a technology specialist, intends to begin a career in the technology, media and telecommunications sector and is already talking to several companies in Scotland, Cambridge and continental Europe, according to the Scottish press.

Hallsworth was one of several partners and 140 staff acquired from Andersen in Scotland when Deloitte took over a large part of its UK practice in July 2002.

He then became the Deloitte partner in charge of Technology, Media and Telecoms in Scotland, including heading Deloitte’s flagship Fast 50 awards for expanding technology businesses.

A senior industry figure, he is a council member of CBI Scotland and was recently made a board member of the Scottish Institute for Enterprise.

Hallsworth is a former board member of the University of Cambridge finance committee and honorary treasurer and trustee of the Cambridge foundation.
