Deloitte appoints Cruickshank as global chairman

DELOITTE has appointed David Cruickshank as global chair, following the firm’s partner ratification process which occurs every four years.

Cruickshank previously served as chairman of Deloitte UK from 2007 to 2015 and succeeds recently retired Steve Almond, who has held the position since 2011.

Having been at Deloitte for over 36 years, Cruickshank will continue to work with Deloitte UK’s largest clients as an advisory partner. He will also take over from Almond on the board of directors of the Social Progress Imperative, an organisation measuring a country’s social and environmental development.

Cruickshank recently became a council member of the International Integrated Reporting Council and a member of the Chairman’s Group of the World Economic Forum. In the past, he led the firm’s UK tax practice with a specialisation in international tax, and qualified as a member of the ICAS over 30 years ago.

Of his appointment, Cruickshank said: “I feel very privileged to take on this role at such an exciting time for our profession – the needs of Deloitte’s clients, people, regulators and other stakeholders are changing rapidly.”

Punit Renjen, Deloitte Global CEO, commented: “David’s long history of leadership, coupled with his experience advising global clients makes him an ideal person for this role. I look forward to working closely with David to continue to ensure Deloitte Global makes a positive impact for all stakeholders, including Deloitte clients, our people, and society.”
