Deloitte Ireland has appointed James Brighton
as an audit director within its financial services group.

Brighton has more than eight years of
experience in structured finance, particularly in the field of
financial modelling.

Before joining Deloitte Ireland, James worked
with Deloitte in the UK for three years and with another major
accounting firm for three years before that.

At Deloitte Ireland, Brighton will continue to
specialise in financial modelling and valuation services in the
banking and structured finance sector.

Brighton’s responsibilities will include
developing Deloitte’s valuation assurance services offering and
expanding the firm’s existing services in the structured finance
territory such as effective/payment date reporting and credit event
verification work.

Deloitte Ireland partner and head of financial
services Mary Fulton said there has been an increasing requirement
in independent assurance for asset-backed security cash flows and
Brighton’s appointment reflects the firm’s ongoing commitment to
the area.
