EY Poaches Someone From KPMG and Issues a Press Release, Part I

We’re going back to the U.K. for today’s edition of “Big 4-on-Big 4 Poaching From Around the World,” where private equity specialist Jo Taylor is moving up from No. 4 to No. 3 in the Big 4 rankings.

From a press release seen by the website TheBusinessDesk.com:

EY’s transaction tax team in Manchester continues to grow and attract talent from within the region, with the most recent appointment of private equity (PE) specialist, Jo Taylor.

Jo joins the team from KPMG as a director, bringing with her a huge amount of experience and local knowledge, advising businesses across the North West on their transactions for almost 20 years.

In her new role, Jo will specialise in supporting PE houses and their portfolio companies on transactional tax implications.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Taylor’s new title with EY is transaction tax director.

Her prior Big 4 tax experience most likely impressed the big brass at EY. She worked at Deloitte as a tax manager for three and a half years before joining the deal advisory tax group at KPMG in October 2005, where she worked until about a month ago.

She celebrated her first full day as an EYer reading the Welcome to EY guide, which I’m sure is a real page-turner, in the comfort of her own home:
