Not only are there two former EY tax wonks who are part of the latest class of tax partners and managing directors at KPMG but there’s also a PwC refugee.
Jeremy Jester has rejoined KPMG as a managing director in its SALT practice. He has nearly 15 years of SALT consulting experience. He joins from PwC, where he served Indirect Tax clients across many different industries in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions.
Jester is back at the House of Klynveld after a 10-year hiatus, according to his LinkedIn profile. He left the firm as a senior associate in 2010 to fill an open cubicle at McGladrey, where he worked in the SALT practice for nearly two years.
He then spent the next seven years at Grant Thornton, working his way up from manager in GT’s SALT practice to senior manager, where he “managed direct-reporting staff persons regarding indirect, income, property and payroll tax issues in Grant Thornton’s McLean, VA office.”
Jester’s next stop was PwC in November 2018, where he was a director before rejoining KPMG this year.
The fan of Pittsburgh sports is based at KPMG’s office in Tysons Corner, VA.
