Communications consultancy Cannings Purple has recruited former Deloitte chairman Keith Jones to succeed Norman Moore when he steps down as chair next month.

Mr Jones will take up his new position on July 1, after ending his four-year tenure as Deloitte’s chairman in May.

He will retain his post as chairman of junior miner Gindalbie Metals.

Mr Jones will succeed Mr Moore, who spent over three years as Cannings Purple chairman. He will remain with the communications consultancy as a special counsel.

Mr Jones, an experienced business adviser, was a partner at Deloitte in Perth for 27 years before becoming its national chairman. Of those 27 years, he spent 15 as managing director in Perth.

“Keith’s corporate finance background is highly regarded in the professional services and business community,” Cannings Purple managing director Warrick Hazeldine said.

“He is respected as a capable and experienced leader, particularly in the field of natural resources, which is of pivotal importance to WA.”

“We would also like to thank Norman Moore, who has been instrumental in leading our board through a period of strong growth over the past three-and-a-half years.

“We are delighted that Norman’s wisdom and experience will continue to be available to us, and to our clients, as a special counsel.”

Mr Jones said he looked forward to beginning in his new role.

"I’ve had a long professional relationship with Cannings Purple and watched the company grow to the position of market leader in strategic communications in Western Australia,” he said.

“From my discussions with Cannings Purple and its cornerstone shareholder, WPP AUNZ, Australasia’s leading marketing communications group, it is evident the firm provides its clients with global reach and access to specialist talent including an emerging digital-transformation business.

“These attributes, combined with a strong local presence, will drive significant future growth for clients and the firm.”
