Deloitte UK appoints independent non-executive

Deloitte UK has appointed Ruth Markland as an independent non-executive director, effective 1 June.

Markland will join Deloitte UK after stepping down as senior independent director of Standard Chartered, an emerging markets-focused bank, following boardroom changes.

Standard Chartered has been fined twice in recent years by US regulators for breaches of compliance and its board has been under criticism for failing to prevent these breaches.

At Deloitte UK, Markland will seat on the firm's main board of partners, as well as sitting on the firm's public interest oversight committee.

She will take over DeAnne Julius, a former CIA intelligence analyst and a Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee member, who joined Deloitte as an independent non-executive in 2011.

Markland will join fellow independent non-executives Standard Life chairman Gerry Grimstone and former private secretary to the Prince of Wales Michael Peat, who have been reappointed for a second term.

Deloitte UK chairman David Cruickshank said that since the establishment of the position in 2011, independent non-executives have made a significant contribution to the board's decision making, "not only in relation to the public interest aspects of our firm's activities but also more generally on business and strategic issues".
