Deloitte appoints new managing partner for regional markets

02 May 2018

Deloitte has today announced Pauline Biddle as the new managing partner for the Deloitte regional markets. Pauline will lead all of Deloitte’s regional practice senior partners outside of London.

Pauline is a transaction services partner, who advises FTSE100 and FTSE250 companies on mergers and acquisitions. She is a member of the Deloitte North West Europe board and also acts as the practice senior partner for Deloitte Midlands.

Pauline Biddle, managing partner for the Deloitte regional markets, said:

“It fills me with great pride to be appointed as managing partner for the Deloitte regional markets. Our 6,000 people across seven regional practices and 18 local offices are already achieving great things and successfully delivering over a third of the firm’s annual revenues.

“However, to make an impact that really matters in our UK regions, investing in our people is my foremost priority. Our regional businesses are growing and our head count is up nearly six per cent with more than 1,450 people recruited in the last year. Our people seek a career experience that delivers personal growth, the ability to progress whilst balancing personal commitments and a clear connection between their role and the firm’s strategy. Deloitte is well on the road to being recognised as the stand out firm and I will be leading our teams in delivering excellence to their clients while supporting growth, improving productivity and driving the regions to economic prosperity.”

Pauline joined the firm via Arthur Andersen in 1992, and has been with Deloitte since the merger in 2002. Her professional career has spanned Audit, Consulting and Financial Advisory. Pauline has also held a number of leadership roles including heading up the firm’s Aerospace and Defence industry group.

Pauline has taken over the role from Richard Bell, Practice Senior Partner in the North West, and now Head of Financial Advisory.
