Matt Ellis has held a variety of positions in Deloitte, including in regional offices in Southampton and Reading as well as London. Most recently he led Deloitte’s global employer services business (GES) and served as talent leader for tax.
David Sproul, senior partner and chief executive of Deloitte, said: “I am delighted to announce Matt as our new managing partner for tax. Matt has been a great leader of our global employer services practice and I am sure that he will bring the same leadership and focus to his new role as head of our tax practice.
“I also want to thank Andy Hodge for the great leadership he provided as managing partner for tax over the past five years.”
