Deloitte appoints new Office Senior Partner for Leeds

19 October 2022

Deloitte has appointed Anil Gupta as Office Senior Partner for Leeds and the Yorkshire market, supporting Stuart Cottee, Practice Senior Partner for Yorkshire and the North East region.

Anil joined the firm in 2005 as a graduate, focusing on Corporate Finance in Yorkshire. For the last five years he has led the regional Debt & Capital Advisory business and now leads the wider Performance Improvement business across the regions.

As part of this new role, Anil aims to grow Deloitte’s impact in Yorkshire along with the 27-strong partner group in Leeds.

Anil Gupta, office senior partner for Leeds and the Yorkshire market at Deloitte, said: “I’m immensely proud to take on this new role. I’ve worked in the Yorkshire market since leaving university and I’m passionate about the region.

“As we further embed our hybrid ways of working, we need to ensure our focus, impact and presence in the local market is louder than ever. Given the scale and reach of the firm, we have an amazing depth and breadth of experience and expertise, capable of addressing our clients’ highest priorities. I’m committed to making an impact that matters in our local communities and with local businesses.

Stuart Cottee, practice senior partner for the Yorkshire and North East region at Deloitte, said: “I am sure Anil will hit the ground running given his expertise and presence in the Yorkshire market and having built a strong debt advisory business over a number of years.

“The firm is investing in its regional business and its leaders of the future. Over the last three years, whilst I have been practice senior partner, we have delivered double digit growth year on year across the region. But now is the time for us to have a laser sharp focus on the local market and deliver the next phase of our growth ambitions.”

The Leeds office employs 626 people and this year Deloitte in Yorkshire has promoted two people to partner, one associate partner (a senior signing director) and nine people to director. A total of 138 people were promoted in the last cohort. The office has also welcomed 59 graduates and 16 BrightStarts to its apprenticeship scheme.
