This week's Yorkshire appointments


Deloitte has announced a substantial number of promotions across the Yorkshire and North East region, including four new partners and 10 new directors.

There have been three partner promotions in Deloitte’s Leeds office: Richard Bolton, who has been promoted in the international tax practice; Matt Bainbridge, who has been made a partner in financial sector audit; and Anil Gupta, who has been appointed as a debt advisory partner in the financial advisory practice.

All three have been with Deloitte for the whole or majority of their careers so represent home grown talent. Upon his partner promotion, Matt has taken up a role leading the firm’s Isle of Man financial services practice.

There are promotions to director for five of Anil’s colleagues in the financial advisory team in Leeds. They are Jonathan Levitt (forensic), Henry Pearson (debt advisory), Kate Rosie (restructuring services), Adam Sookia (debt advisory), and Richard Sweetland (transaction services).

James Izzard also becomes director in corporate tax, Mark Lewis in audit and Steve Mills in the consulting team.

Stuart Cottee, practice senior partner for Yorkshire and the North East, said: “It is always pleasing to recognise talent, hard work and dedication and I am delighted for everybody.”
