25th June 2020, 4:52 pm

EY’s Transaction Tax team in Manchester continues to grow and attract the best talent from within the region, with the most recent appointment of private equity (PE) specialist, Jo Taylor.

Jo joins the team from KPMG as a Director, bringing with her a huge amount of experience and local knowledge, advising businesses across the North West on their transactions for almost 20 years.

In her new role, Jo will specialise in supporting PE houses and their portfolio companies on transactional tax implications.

This is the most recent in a string of new appointments into the PE transaction tax team in Manchester, led by Stephen Woodhouse, and demonstrates EY’s continued ambition to strengthen its position as one of the strongest private equity tax teams outside of London. Earlier in the financial year Dan Haslam also joined the team from KPMG.

Noam Handler, North Head of Tax, said: “Jo is a fantastic addition to the team and her appointment illustrates the commitment of the firm to establish a market-leading Private Equity Tax team here in the North West.

“Our Manchester team, continues to go from strength to strength and as we look to the future, I can see very exciting times ahead.”

Bob Ward, Managing Partner for EY in the North West, added: “I’m delighted to welcome Jo to EY. It’s great to have her onboard and I’m sure the team will benefit greatly from her considerable expertise and experience of working with businesses across the region.

“It’s encouraging to see that, even in these uncertain times, we are looking to further expand our offering within the region and build on our strong private equity credentials. This will allow us to continue to support PE businesses, giving them the best advice throughout the transaction cycle.”
