Deloitte Ireland has appointed eight new partners across its business. Yvonne Byrne, Ciaran McGovern and Ruairí Mitchell have become partners in the Consulting practice; Matthew Dolan and Vincent McCullagh are partners in the tax practice; Brian Fennelly is now a partner in the Financial Advisory practice; John Kehoe is a partner in Audit & Assurance and Laura Wadding has become a partner in the Risk Advisory practice.

Harry Goddard, who commenced his term as CEO of Deloitte Ireland at the start of June said: It’s a privilege to be leading this business and I’m delighted that my first announcement as CEO is the celebration of these partner appointments, which reflect the breadth of services that we provide to our clients. It’s a time of great change, with a volatile global economic landscape, technological disruption and regulatory scrutiny facing many of our clients. I am confident that our new partners will support them as they look to drive their businesses forward and capitalise on the opportunities that do exist in the current landscape.”

Goddard succeeds Brendan Jennings as CEO of Deloitte Ireland. Previously head of the Consulting practice at Deloitte, he has more than 20 years’ experience in the professional services and consulting industries.
