Mitul Shah - Business in the Community

Mitul Shah


Race Equality Leadership team

Mitul Shah is a Partner based in London and leads Deloitte’s global Reward business. He also serves as the People & Purpose Partner for the Deloitte UK Tax & Legal practice, with oversight of talent matters including Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) for over 3,000 professionals.

He has over 20 years’ experience of advising global organisations on all aspects of reward, focusing on supporting Remuneration Committees of large listed companies with complex issues, navigating the corporate governance and external landscape, incentive design and associated implementation matters.

He has worked with companies listed in various markets including the UK, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, US, Russia, Japan and Australia. 

Mitul has a keen interest and passion in the D&I agenda (he leads the efforts of Deloitte internally as it relates to diversity from an ethnic minority perspective) and frequently advises clients on the D&I agenda and the role of the Remuneration Committee on this matter. He supported the CBI on developing and implementing their Change the Race Ratio Campaign.   

Mitul was born in Kenya and spent his formative years there. Mitul’s family emigrated to Leicester in the UK when he was eight years old, trading the hot sunny weather with the cold and rain of UK winters. Mitul’s grandparents were born in Gujarat and moved to East Africa in the 1940s. Gujarati culture and food is a core part of who Mitul is and how he lives. Mitul lives in London with his wife Nili, six year-old son Anay and two year-old cat Zavi. Mitul and his son are huge sports fans supporting India in cricket and Leicester City and England in football, their sporting interests reflecting who they are and where they came from in a multi-cultural world. At work, Mitul is passionate about diversity and inclusion and making sure that people from all backgrounds and walks of life can be their best, supporting their development and helping them achieve their objectives.

About Business in the Community’s Race Leadership Team

Each area of work Business in the Community (BITC) undertakes is led by a group of senior executives who provide strategic guidance and support us in achieving our objectives.

The purpose of BITC’s Race Equality Leadership Team is to support employers to help break down the barriers that prevent the progression of ethnic minorities in their workplaces and show how an inclusive organisation better serves its customers, clients and communities.
