Eight people promoted at Deloitte in Birmingham

Business advisory firm Deloitte, which recently announced a return to growth in its financial results, has made eight senior appointments at its office in Birmingham.

Richard Hadley, who works in the corporate finance transaction services team, has been promoted to director along with Paul Cadwallader, Cristina Blyth and Del Heppenstall, who work in enterprise risk services (ERS).

Tim Cullimore and James Houghton, who work in consulting, and Andy Halls, audit, have also been promoted to director. In addition, Richard Monahan, corporate finance, has been promoted to assistant director.

Richard Hadley joined Deloitte in 2000 and has ten years’ experience in corporate finance, advising and providing due diligence support to companies and investors undertaking mergers or acquisitions. His clients include both private equity firms and corporates.


Richard is currently leading the transaction support Deloitte provides to organisations in the Higher Education sector, as universities increasingly work together to overcome the challenges arising from public spending cuts.

Paul Cadwallader has worked at Deloitte for more than seven years. As an ERS specialist, he advises companies on how to prevent and manage potential risks to their business, such as cyber attacks, supply chain disruption, natural disasters and fraud.

Deloitte employs more than 540 people at its office in Brindleyplace, including 50 directors.

Chris Loughran, Deloitte Midlands practice senior partner, said: “I’m delighted to be announcing these promotions as they are testament to the quality of the people we have in our business and of the valuable work they are doing with our clients.  There are few things more important to the success of our business than attracting, developing and retaining high quality people.

“As Directors, they’re now part of the leadership of our firm in the Midlands. Adding seven to our complement is a reflection of the growth opportunities we continue to see, even in these challenging times.”
