Carlyle hires new principal to support board and advisory practice
Executive search firm Carlyle has announced the appointment of Alice Deakin as a principal, bringing more than 20 years of finance, commercial and leadership experience gained from working across the technology, professional services, media and financial services sectors.
Ms Deakin held the chief financial officer role at IndigoVision, before going on to help run Deloitte’s CFO programme, where she was a director, and also led the education function at the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland, before establishing her own board coaching practice.
Fiona James-Martin, partner at Carlyle, said: “From her experience of being a CFO at a listed company, to helping senior finance professionals develop towards and transition into CFO roles during her time at Deloitte, Alice is a fantastic fit for both our team at Carlyle, and our client base in Scotland, London and beyond.
“Her insight into the intricacies of how Boards operate is particularly relevant for where Carlyle is growing.”
Meanwhile, Lucy Seligman is Carlyle’s latest addition to our research and market intelligence team, taking up the role of researcher, and we also recently welcomed our latest graduate, marking the seventh year of the Carlyle graduate programme.
