Deloitte Global Board of Directors

The Deloitte Global Board of Directors addresses Deloitte Global’s most important governance matters, including approval of the global strategy, annual budget and investment plan, major policies, major transactions, and selection of the Deloitte Global CEO and Deloitte Global Chair. In addition, the Deloitte Global Board provides oversight of and support for the operation and performance of management.

Board composition has proportionate representation of Deloitte member firms, and spans the full geographic reach of Deloitte’s operations. Diversity – including that of gender, race and ethnicity, thought and life experience, professional background as well as skills and capabilities – is considered by member firms as they designate individuals to these positions. The Deloitte Global Board has 17 members, with women making up 35% of the Board (up from 19% in FY19). Deloitte Global Chair Anna Marks began her four-year term of office on 1 June 2023.

Except for the Deloitte Global CEO and Deloitte Global Chair, all Deloitte Global Board members are active Deloitte firm partners. No Deloitte Global Board members hold any significant positions or commitments in other commercial organizations.

The Board has several committees to support its oversight and governance role. The Deloitte Global Board also leverages ad-hoc committees, working groups and councils to provide oversight on specific topics (typically time-bound).

  • CEO Nominating (inactive)
  • Compensation (CC)
  • Finance & Audit (FAC)
  • Geopolitics Working Group (GWG)
  • Risk & Ethics (REC)
  • Stewardship (SC)
  • Succession Planning (SPC)
  • Technology & Transformation (TTC)

The Deloitte Global Chair and Board receive input from the Deloitte Global Independent Non-Executive (INE) Advisory Council. The group provides advice and insights on a variety of matters, including strategy, planning, public policy, quality, risk and regulatory matters, and broader stakeholder engagement. The Deloitte Global Chair and Board also regularly engage with the Deloitte Community of Chairs, which is made up of a broad group of chairs of the boards of directors of Deloitte firms from almost 40 countries around the world, not all of which are directly represented on the Deloitte Global Board.
