New head of tax at mid-tier firm

Rob Withecombe has been appointed as the new head of tax at top ten
accounting firm Grant Thornton.

Withecombe has been with the firm for over 10 years and until recently led
one of its London tax businesses.

He takes over from Ian Evans, who moves to the newly created role of global
head of tax at Grant Thornton International.

Evans will join the new global leadership team at the firm, which includes
global heads of four service areas: privately held businesses; tax; assurance;
and specialist advisory services.

Last week Smith & Williamson national tax director Francesca Lagerberg
was appointed as head of Grant Thornton UK’s national tax office.

In her new role, she will report to Withecombe.
