KPMG International Announces New Global Head of Tax
KPMG International Announces New Global Head of Tax, Jane McCormick.
KPMG International named UK-based Jane McCormick as new Global Head of Tax. Jane will assume the role from Greg Wiebe, who led KPMG’s Global Tax Practice for the last four years. Jane McCormick has over 25 years as a tax professional and has held senior leadership roles as Head of Tax and Pensions in the UK member firm, and as Head of Tax for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Jane has played an active role in positioning KPMG at the forefront of the global tax transparency and responsibility debate and has been instrumental in the creation of the Responsible Tax for the Common Good Project, a UK-based initiative designed to explore the meaning and purpose of responsible tax within society.
KPMG International Chairman, John Veihmeyer said, “Jane has been a highly effective leader on the global stage, and I am confident she will provide outstanding leadership for KPMG’s global tax professionals, ensuring that we continue to innovate to stay ahead of our clients’ needs, and focus on the global issues that matter most to our clients. I also want to thank Greg Wiebe for the outstanding leadership that he provided as our Global Head of Tax for the last four years.”
John Veihmeyer added, “Jane has worked with some of the world’s leading companies, and has led the tax practice in one of our largest member firms, as well as our largest region. Equally important, she understands the challenges facing multinational companies today and is well positioned to work with KPMG’s tax professionals around the world as they help clients navigate the changing landscape.”
“The tax environment is changing rapidly. Increased transparency across borders, additional reporting and compliance requirements and multi-jurisdictional legislative changes such as EU Audit Reform are impacting clients like never before,” said Jane McCormick. “I look forward to the opportunity presented by this new environment and I’m excited to work with our extraordinary tax professionals across the globe.”
