Deloitte has announced the appointment of two senior partners, Hannah Routh and Charlotte Warburton, to strengthen the firm’s global climate change and transport services. Hannah Routh brings 25 years’ experience in the climate change and sustainability sector. Previously a partner with Deloitte China, Hannah was responsible for the Climate Change and Sustainability Advisory practice for Deloitte Asia Pacific. In her new role with Deloitte UK she will be responsible for building the existing team to deliver climate change, decarbonisation and net zero projects for private and public sector clients.
Hannah said: “We see the 2020s as the climate change decade and in response we are expanding the services we provide to organisations in order to support them on their net zero journey. We are committed to doing high quality and rigorous work that makes a positive impact. After 13 years living and working in China, I’m pleased to have come back to the UK at such a pivotal time. As the UK government prepares to host COP26 in November 2021, now is the time for organisations to look urgently at how climate change commitments can be met and the transformation that needs to take place.”
Charlotte Warburton joins Deloitte’s public sector practice as the consulting transport leader, following five years at PA Consulting Group advising global transport, travel and logistics companies, as well as leading their Rail group. She has previously worked on a number of large scale innovation programmes, both in the UK and in the Middle East. A transport and technology specialist, Charlotte will be responsible for growing the firm’s transport consulting practice across the UK and Europe, with a special emphasis on the building the firm’s offering in the North of England. Through national transformation Charlotte will focus on helping companies to achieve their net zero climate targets.
Charlotte commented: “I am looking forward to helping organisations use technology to make better business decisions and to achieve their net zero goals through digital solutions. Being from the North myself, a key objective will be to transform transport infrastructure in the regions as we continue to support the UK’s levelling up agenda.”
