New senior partner named

Deloitte Midlands has announced the appointment of a new practice senior partner for the region.

Juliet Halfhead, a tax partner who leads Deloitte’s North and South Europe (NSE) Reward Practice, will take over from Jane Whitlock who is taking a role on the Deloitte NSE Board.

Juliet is from the Midlands and joined Deloitte in 2001. She has spent most of her career working in both Birmingham and Nottingham and was promoted to partner in 2012.

Working with some of the firm’s most prestigious and complex clients, Juliet works with a range of listed companies in the UK and internationally, as well as privately-owned and private equity-backed businesses.

Over the next few years, Juliet will focus on the continued growth of the Birmingham and Nottingham practices initially concentrating on innovation, talent and driving forward Deloitte’s multi-disciplinary approach for clients.

Juliet is taking over the role at an exciting time for the Midlands as it prepares for the upcoming Commonwealth Games, which will showcase the region’s capabilities on a global scale. 

“I am passionate about the Midlands, the business ecosystem and local communities. Working in the region for the majority of my career, I know the Midlands is a great place to work and live and have witnessed its growth first-hand,” said Juliet.  

“We have a vibrant regional agenda that isn’t in a static state and I’m proud of Deloitte’s contribution to our local economy, our leading tech accelerator - Vodafone Centre for Health with Deloitte - and the continued growth in areas such as advanced manufacturing that are so important to the region.

“The Midlands continues to benefit from innovative initiatives such as 5G and the upcoming Commonwealth Games presents a once in a generation opportunity to showcase what the Midlands has to offer and become a world-class destination for trade, investment and tourism, which can only further the region’s reputation as a place to invest and grow.”
