Board of Partners

The Board of Partners is responsible for the promotion and protection of partner interests and for the oversight of management. It approves Deloitte’s long-term strategies and has specific oversight of risk.  The Board is composed of the Chairman, the Senior Partner, both of whom are elected by the partners, a further eleven elected partners, three Executive Group partners proposed by the Senior Partner and affirmed by the partners and three Independent Non Executives.

Like the Senior Partner, the Chairman is nominated by the Board and elected by the partners and serves for a four year term of office. David Cruickshank commenced his first term of office as Chairman on 1 June 2007 and was re-elected to serve a second four year term on 1 June 2011. The separation of the roles of the Chairman and the Senior Partner provides a strong measure of accountability for the Executive team.

Deloitte’s Partnership Agreement stipulates that the eleven elected board members, in addition to the Chairman, must not be members of the Executive Group. As a result three quarters of the Board membership is independent of the Executive Group.

The current Board comprises of:

David Cruickshank David Cruickshank

David Sproul David Sproul
