Mannion to fill Lagerberg's shoes

Former CIOT president Richard Mannion to replace influential Francesca Lagerberg at Smith & Williamson

Richard Mannion, a former president of the CIOT, is the man who has been
tasked with replacing Francesca Lagerberg at Smith Williamson.

Lagerberg, the chair of the ICAEW’s tax faculty and Smith & Williamson’s
national director of tax, was poached by Smith & Williamson’s mid-tier
adversaries Grant Thornton.

Lagerberg is a respected public authority on taxation issues and has an
enviable list of contacts with HM Revenue & Customs and the ICAEW.

Mannion will takeover from Lagerberg on 23 October and has an impressive CV
of his own.

He has been described by former HMRC chairman Sir David Varney as a
‘visionary’ and is also a member of HMRC’s troubleshooting industry project
known as ‘Working Together’.

Mannion, an active member of the CIOT’s technical and personal tax
committees, is also known for his work in bringing regulators and advisers
closer together.

At Smith & Williamson he will be responsible for disseminating tax
information across the group and ensuring quality control.
