EY poaches KPMG’s ex-private client head

EY has recruited the former head of KPMG’s private client practice.

David Kilshaw, who served a tax partner for 17 years at KPMG and led the private client tax group between 20004 and 2001, joins EY’s equivalent practice.

Kilshaw most recently served as the national chairman of KPMG’s private client group and headed its international network.

Joining EY in 2014, he will work alongside fellow partners John Cooney, Caspar Noble, and Carolyn Steppler.

John Dixon, EY’s head of tax in the UK & Ireland, said: “David will be a real asset to our strong private client tax team in the UK. As well as growing our family office practice, he will take an active role in developing and mentoring new talent coming through the team.

“We have ambitions to grow the tax business significantly, and it’s imperative that we have the best people at the helm and coming through every level of the organisation.”
