E&Y appoints two tax partners from City firms

Ernst & Young has appointed two tax partners from City firms for its UK
tax practice.

Stephen Hoyle joins the Big Four firm from Deutsche Bank AG, where he was
managing director in the investment bank’s structured capital markets division,
while Andrew Martel, joins from CQS, the alternative asset management group,
where he was head of tax.

Their appointment brings the number of new recruits in EY’s UK tax practice
in the past year to 22.

The expansion of the tax practice comes as E&Y plans to cut up to 120
jobs across its UK and Ireland businesses.

Hoyle trained and qualified as a lawyer with Nabarro Nathanson in London
before moving to Freshfields where he became a tax partner. Before joining CQS,
Andrew was a partner at Deloitte.
