Senior leadership changes at Deloitte Jersey as senior partner retires

17/07/2018 News Team

Helen Gale, Andy Isham and Martin Rowley have taken on new leadership roles at Deloitte Jersey following the retirement of Greg Branch.

Mr Branch, who has been the senior partner for Deloitte Jersey since 2013 and previously led the Channel Islands practice, will be retiring from the firm this August. 

Ms Gale will lead the Jersey audit practice, Mr Rowley will lead the Jersey tax practice and Mr Isham will lead the Jersey advisory practice. Also in the audit leadership team are three directors with audit signing responsibility, Siobhan Durcan, Marc Cleeve and Theo Brennand.

Ms Gale joined the Jersey office after working in Deloitte's Paris and London offices. She draws on over 20 years specialising in the provision of audit and advisory services to the investment management industry and will continue to focus on private equity and the broader alternative investment asset classes.

As well as her new role as the Head of Jersey audit practice, she will continue to lead Deloitte’s private equity sector group. 

Mr Rowley – who joined Deloitte’s Jersey practice from London last year - has 25 years of international tax experience, 20 of them in legal practice. He regularly acts for private equity houses, real estate funds and sovereign financial institutions in the structuring and execution of their investments, joint ventures and other M&A activities, as well as assisting fund managers in the structuring of their portfolio investments, financings and divestments.

Mr Isham has over 20 years’ experience providing services to offshore regulated financial services clients, including investment management businesses, fund managers and fund administrators. He acts as joint liquidator to solvent and insolvent structures including both Jersey-based entities and those in other offshore jurisdictions with multi-jurisdictional operations and asset locations, which need to deal with regulators both in the island and overseas.

John Clacy, who was promoted to head of Deloitte’s Channel Islands practice last year, said: "I’d like to thank Greg for his leadership and immense contribution over the past 25 years.

"He leaves Deloitte in great shape. Our audit, tax and advisory practices are continually strengthening in terms of depth and breadth of expertise and our place as part of Deloitte’s UK practice gives our clients access to first-class services."
