New appointment

Richard Bell to lead the UK Regions

Deloitte has appointed Richard Bell to the role of Managing Partner, Regional Markets.

Deloitte in the UK regions

As Managing Partner, Richard will lead all of Deloitte’s regional practice senior partners outside of London in focusing on achieving market leadership across the country, working with some of the UK’s largest and most influential organisations. In addition, Richard will focus on creating an inspiring culture within Deloitte for staff to develop and grow; both key components of the firm’s national strategy. Richard will continue in his current role as North West Practice Senior Partner alongside his new responsibilities.

Richard Bell, Managing Partner, Regional Markets, said:

'I am incredibly proud to be appointed Managing Partner, Regional Markets at Deloitte. I want Deloitte to be recognised as the stand out firm in our regional markets, admired for the impact we have on our clients’ success and reputation. I am excited and energised by the opportunities and challenges which lie ahead.

“The strength and diversity of our practice outside of London is a key differentiator for Deloitte, and I am looking forward to building upon this, working closely with our UK Chief Executive, David Sproul, and our regional practice senior partners, as we continue to be bold in our commitment to innovative new services and solutions for our clients.

“Investing in our people will also be a priority. Today’s talent market is evolving faster than at any other time over the past 20 years. 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. We have already been focused on building our people’s skills and developing future business leaders, but will do more to meet their expectations.

“The investments we make in our services and in our people will help our clients navigate an economic and political environment which remains exciting, particularly in our regional markets.'
