Having studied Philosophy and Economics at Wadham College, Oxford, Cullinane was an official at the Department of Employment Group between 1977-1986. He became a tax specialist at Arthur Andersen in 1986, a role he held for nearly 16 years before taking up the position of tax partner at Deloitte in 2002. Cullinane retired from Deloitte in 2015.

Inclusion in Financial Power List 2018

Cullinane was named in 44th position on the Accountancy Age Financial Power List 2018.

“A strong and respected voice on tax policy for both the industry and government, there’s no shortage of tax matters for Cullinane to get stuck into in 2018. With April tax changes ahead, the Budget awaiting later in the year and Brexit looming, we can be confident that the former CIOT president and Deloitte senior tax partner will have plenty to say on the big topics.”
