Business advisory firm Deloitte is reinforcing its position as the Accounting and Finance Employer of the Year with the appointment of Jonathan Lees to lead its restructuring services proposition in the North East.
Jonathan has been with Deloitte for nearly 12 years, previously working in Leeds and most recently in Manchester, having joined the company as a graduate from Edinburgh University in 2005.
He will be focusing on assisting corporates with the advice, support and knowledge to help transform their businesses and add value.
Jonathan will be part of Deloitte’s North East Financial Advisory leadership team alongside Harry Horrocks and David Frith, providing strategic guidance to the North East team and ensuring a locally-based, full service offering to clients in the region.
“The North-East has an incredibly strong entrepreneurial and innovative business economy that makes it a hugely attractive place to work. As part of restructuring services I’m looking forward to helping existing and new clients overcome challenges they face by offering a proactive approach, which will help them achieve their ambitions,” said Jonathan.
Stephen Hall, office senior partner for Deloitte in the North East, said: “We’re continuing to grow the team to provide the most comprehensive range of professional services in the North East. Jonathan brings significant knowledge of the wider Northern markets and his appointment adds great depth to our restructuring services offer.
