Long distance chairing
Anne Redston, formerly of Ernst & Young and voted tax ‘personality of the year’ in the recent Taxation awards, will shortly catch the slow boat to China.
Redston is heading off to practise her Chinese for four months, and leaves in August. That much we know. What has recently come to TS’s attention though is Redston’s plans to continue in her role as chair of the personal tax committee, among other roles, at the Chartered Institute of Taxation.
Some may question how she will carry out her duties to the full from across the world, but TS has absolute faith in her. After all, we wrote this piece while sitting on a beach in Bognor (it would have been Bermuda but gossip doesn’t pay well).
