Deloitte Announced Merger of BVI, USVI and Bermuda Offices


In the end of August, international accounting and financial consulting firm Deloitte announced the merger of its BVI, USVI, and Bermuda practices. It is said to bring enhanced services to clients and greater access to Deloitte professionals who provide insights and solutions to complex business challenges.

The company also informed that the practices will continue to operate as Deloitte & Touche Services Ltd, from the current offices in the British Virgin Islands and US Virgin Islands, providing tax, consulting, financial advisory and audit services. The company does not plan to close offices, and each of them will have local leadership. 

The merger combination, effective from August 26, coincides with the retirement of BVI/USVI office managing partner Mark Chapman, who will continue as a consultant to the company through the end of October. Mark Chapman joined Deloitte BVI in 1995, and focused on offshore enterprises in the financial services sector. Now the British Virgin Islands and US Virgin Islands offices will be operated by Carlene Romney, who is specialist in financial services audits, and Richard White, an experienced professional with over 13 years of working in practice and industry as a chartered accountant.

Speaking about the merger of practices, Carlene Romney stated that Deloitte’s clients, communities and professionals will benefit from it, as the company will be able “to deliver additional services, especially in areas such as tax, restructuring, and risk management.”
