MAZARS has appointed tax specialist Gary Collins as tax partner. He will be responsible for the tax offering across the East Midlands at Mazars, and will be based out of both the firm’s Leicester and Nottingham offices.
Collins, who retired a year ago, was previously a partner at KPMG covering a number of senior roles – including heading the Midlands regional corporate tax offering and also latterly, a tax partner in its ‘’Enterprise’’ offer.
Alistair Wesson, East Midlands managing partner at Mazars, said: “We are delighted to have lured Gary out of retirement to join Mazars. He is one of the most respected tax specialists in the East Midlands and is a great addition to our growing team.” “He brings a wealth of experience to the firm which will be invaluable in strengthening the East Midlands tax team and linking with the wider regional and national teams to enhance the corporate tax offer that Mazars takes to market.”
