A&M Taxand sets up global board

Firm appoints former Andersen partners to its new global advisory board

Alvarez & Marsal Taxand has appointed a global advisory board as it looks
to expand.

The US firm is looking to get a foothold in the UK tax market, taking up
where Chiltern left off in providing tax advice independent of audit conflicts
of interest.

Former Arthur Andersen senior tax partners Harry Ruffalo, Andre Fogarasi and
David Murby will form the new board.

As senior advisers, they will advise the firm on global marketing, training
initiatives and delivering outstanding client service, the firm said.

‘We are thrilled to have Harry, Andre and David, who were instrumental in the
growth and success of Arthur Andersen’s tax business during its heyday, working
with us,’ said Robert N. Lowe JR, head of Alvarez & Marsal Taxand.

‘A&M’s tax advisory business in the US and UK and across the globe
through the Taxand network continues to experience exponential growth due to
the demand by corporations for independent tax advice. This global advisory
board lends a practiced, insightful point-of-view on executing our strategy of
providing the market with a high quality fifth global tax firm.’

‘The experience these individuals bring to our firm is invaluable,’ said
David Pert, head of Alvarez & Marsal Taxand UK. ‘Their passion for the tax
business is inspiring to all of our people.’
