EY appoints three new partners

EY has announced the appointment of Richard White, Nicola Westbrooke and Richard Ross as tax partners in its Real Estate, Hospitality and Construction (RHC) team.

As part of the RHC team, they will advise across the real estate spectrum and will play key roles in international real estate transactions, supporting the creation and management of private and public property vehicles.

White, Westbrooke and Ross all join from KPMG, where they oversaw the real estate tax practice. They have advised Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), fund entities and institutional and sovereign investors and have worked on high-profile and complex real estate transactions both within the UK and internationally. Combined, they have 75 years’ worth of real estate experience.

Russell Gardner, head of RHC at EY for UK and Ireland, commented: “The appointment of Richard, Nicola and Richard underlines EY’s commitment to the real estate sector. Their arrival marks another significant step on the journey of EY’s UK real estate practice and consolidates the progress we have made in the last two years. I’m hugely excited about the opportunities that lie ahead having been able to bring on board three partners with such wealth of real estate experience.”

This news comes a week after EY appointed Patrick Bossert as the head of its UK Infrastructure Asset Intelligence practice.
