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

Let this serve as the inaugural post to the immensely popular sister series: KPMG v. PwC.

And while Ernst & Young has been proactively adding talent via competitive poaching from Deloitte and others, to our knowledge Papa Whiskey Charlie and the Black and Yellow have not had any public personnel entanglements until today:

Michael Spielman has joined PwC US as a tax partner in PwC’s Personal Financial Services practice within the Private Company Services group in the New York market. Based in New York City, Spielman brings over 15 years of experience to his work with individual clients, including family business owners, corporate executives, financial services clients and other high net worth individuals, and will focus on expanding the practice’s global footprint. Prior to joining PwC, Spielman served as Americas Leader for Individual Global Tax Planning at Ernst & Young. Previously, Spielman was a practicing tax attorney for more than a decade and started his career as an attorney adviser to Judge Renato Beghe in the United States Tax Court in Washington, D.C., where he drafted opinions for estate and gift tax controversies. “Along with his extensive experience advising a range of clients including foreign-based billionaires, multinational families, private equity principals and ultra-high net worth C-suite executives, Michael brings impressive technical skills and personal financial experience and knowledge to his new role from his tax and legal background,” said Brittney Saks, partner and U.S. leader of PwC’s Personal Financial Services practice. “His global perspective, grounded in his work in Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East, makes him a valuable addition as we help our clients navigate an increasingly complex global wealth landscape.”
Those are some impressive chops. And from the sounds of it, this guy could show Mitt Romney a thing or two that he doesn’t know already.
