KPMG’s UK Tax and Pensions Practice announces the appointment of one new partner and five directors/associate partners as it continues to strengthen the breadth and depth of technical expertise it offers clients.
John Cox recently rejoined KPMG as partner, having spent a period at Deloitte, focused on the Private Equity area of the business. This hire complements the previously announced recent recruitment of Victor Abrams from PWC to KPMG’s Tax Value Chain practice and Nick Roome from DLA Piper who will join to lead KPMG’s Legal Services practice in Manchester in the late spring.
In addition, five new directors/associate partners join KPMG’s Corporate Tax and People Services teams.
KPMG UK Head of Tax and Pensions, Jane McCormick, commented: “These latest hires add further to the depth and breadth of the technical advice we are able to offer to our clients and in particular, they enhance our capabilities in advising on tax compliance issues, which now account for most of our revenues across the tax and pensions practice."

This is driving demand for advice in these areas which, with these latest hires adding to our existing capabilities, we are well placed to provide."
“In addition to these senior hires, we continue to recruit across our business, including at more junior levels.”
