Former CML chief joins Deloitte

Deloitte has appointed former Council of Mortgage Lenders director-general Michael Coogan as strategic adviser to its financial services practice.

Coogan joins Deloitte today and he will be working closely with the retail banking and building society advisory group.

He will particularly focus on the firm’s insight into the retail banking and mortgage markets.

The role is part-time and Coogan says that he is still looking at other opportunities. He held the position of CML director-general for 15 years until he stepped down in August last year and was replaced by Paul Smee.

Coogan says: “I look forward to applying my knowledge and experience from the CML to support the advisory group and a range of Deloitte clients.”

Stephen Williams, head of regional financial services practice at Deloitte, says: “Coogan is recognised as one of the leading experts in his field and his appointment further strengthens an impressive team that is well placed to help clients meet and overcome the challenges ahead.”
