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

Just like our waistlines over Thanksgiving weekend, the tax practice at the Queen’s KPMG got larger earlier this month with the addition of three new partners.

Candice Nichol, a tax lawyer with 14 years of experience, joined KPMG as a deal advisory tax partner in London from international law firm Simmons & Simmons, while Justin LaHood was appointed to lead KPMG UK’s Financial Services Tax Transformation business. The third person, Mike Bolan, was poached from EY:

KPMG has also hired Mike Bolan to head its UK-US Financial Services Corridor. Mike, who has 17 years’ experience providing UK and international tax advice to clients across financial services and fintech sectors, will support US corporate clients in responding to the demands of UK and EU tax developments. He’ll initially be based out of the New York office.

In case any of you were wondering what the KPMG UK-US Financial Services Corridor is, the firm said: “KPMG’s U.S. UK Corridor consists of teams of professionals with deep knowledge and experience working on both sides of the Atlantic to provide you with best-in-class service across all of our service offerings. Our mission is to bring all KPMG capabilities to the needs of British companies operating in the U.S. and U.S. companies operating in the UK.”

No wonder KPMG couldn’t wait to get its sweaty hands on Bolan because he spent significant portions of time at EY in both London and New York City.

During his 18-year career at EY, he started as a trainee and then moved up the ladder from associate to senior, then to manager, senior manager, director, and finally to managing director, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Bolan worked in London during his first 11 years with EY, then spent the last seven years in NYC.
