Lagerberg moves to Grant Thornton

High-profile S&W partner poached for new role at mid-tier firm, working from London

Francesca Lagerberg is to join Grant Thornton as the firm’s new head of
national tax.

The poaching of Lagerberg from Smith & Williamson is a significant coup
for the firm. Not only is Lagerberg a much quoted media commentator on tax
issues, her connections at the institute in government are much envied.

‘If you were to say we want to create this role and find someone to do it,
you couldn’t have chosen someone better than Francesca,’ said Mike Warburton,
senior tax partner at GT.

Lagerberg has for the last year been chairman of the tax faculty at the
ICAEW.

She is to take up the new specially created role in November, working from
London and leading a team briefing people internally and externally on the
latest tax technical changes.

Ian Evans, who had performed a similar role, is to move up to Grant Thornton
International as part of the changes.
