Punit Renjen has been elected to a second, four-year term as Deloitte Global CEO. At the same time, Sharon Thorne begins her term as chair of the Deloitte Global Board of Directors. She is the first woman to serve as Deloitte Global chair.

"Leading Deloitte has been a privilege, and I am honoured to be chosen by my colleagues to continue our work for four more years," Renjen said. During his first term, Deloitte experienced double-digit revenue growth, climbing to become the largest of the Big Four professional services organizations with aggregate revenue of $43.2 billion in FY 2018. Renjen was also responsible for the launch of Deloitte's corporate responsibility programme, WorldClass.  

"When I began my career in the 1980s, I doubt there was anyone who could have envisioned the world we live in today or the important role that business would play in creating a more sustainable and equitable society," Renjen said. "Ultimately, the success Deloitte achieves and the mark we'll leave will be measured not by the bottom line, but by the positive impact we make for clients, our people, and for society. The work we do is both challenging and exhilarating, and I'm thrilled to be able to continue this journey in my current role."

Renjen has been with Deloitte for 32 years. Prior to his current role, he served as the chairman of Deloitte LLP (US member firm) from 2011-2015. He is also a member of several not-for-profit boards including at the United Way Worldwide (chairman) and U.S.-India Strategic Partnership Forum (vice chairman).
