BDO poaches Hume from GT

International tax expert Anton Hume becomes head of transfer pricing at BDO Stoy Hayward, in latest mid-tier tax practice move

BDO Stoy Hayward has poached Grant Thornton international tax expert
Anton
Hume
, in the latest example of the merry-go-round at mid-tier tax practices.

In recent weeks, Francesca Lagerberg has gone from Smith & Williamson to
Grant Thornton, amidst a reshuffle at GT that saw
Ian
Evans
promoted to the firm’s international network.

Hume becomes head of transfer pricing at BDO, rejoining the firm after 11
years at Grant Thornton and Coopers & Lybrand.

He has worked in tax since 1984 and has specialised in international tax for
more than 15 years. He has extensive transfer pricing experience and knowledge
of the transfer pricing market, and will look to continue to build the firm’s
reputation in tax.

Paul
Eagland
, head of Tax Services at BDO Stoy Hayward, said: ‘Anton brings a
wealth of knowledge and experience in a wide range of international tax matters
and an ability to utilise innovative thinking to deliver solutions to his
clients. The firm grew by 27% last year, which is in large part a product of the
increasing demand we are seeing from clients for a comprehensive international
service.’

Hume said of his move: ‘I am delighted to be rejoining the firm at such an
exciting time in its development. The firm has a clear vision, outstanding
management and a strong partnership ethic, all of which has contributed to its
exceptional growth in recent years. I am proud to be leading a team of very
talented economists and international tax specialists and am hugely impressed by
the strength of BDO’s transfer pricing resource right around the globe.’
