Ben Powell, head of public sector tax at Deloitte, said: “Paul is a terrific addition to our partnership – his knowledge and insight in the public sector and charities space is unrivalled, and his leadership in our tax services will enable us to provide ever greater support to housing associations, universities, charities and the wider public sector.”
