Last week we told you guys about Deloitte Ireland helping a longtime PwC tax director achieve his dream of becoming a Big 4 partner. In today’s edition of “Big 4-on-Big 4 Poaching From Around the World,” we head to Switzerland, where a PwCer-turned-Deloitter is coming back home to Papa Whiskey Charlie.
Richard Geldart rejoined PwC on May 1 as a partner with the international private wealth team in Switzerland. He had spent the past four years working within the international private wealth and entrepreneurs team at Deloitte Switzerland.
Here’s the latest from P. Dubs Switzerland, courtesy of Tax Grotto:
Mr Geldart has 20 years’ experience covering Swiss, UK and international tax structuring, family governance, wealth and succession planning, M&A, family office design and transformation. He brings with him a wealth of experience in advising high-net-worth individuals, entrepreneurs and family businesses, single as well as multi family offices and private investment offices.
He joins from Deloitte where he was the Family Office & UHNW Leader for North and South Europe & Switzerland. He developed and successfully led the Deloitte Private business in Switzerland from inception – delivering holistic advice across its four pillars (Family Office and UHNW, Family Business and Private Companies, Private Equity and Fast Growth/Start Ups).
RG joined PwC U.K. on a school leaver program in 2001 and stuck around for nearly 15 years, “progressing from being a deep U.K. tax technical specialist to wider team, proposition and client leadership and relationship roles” in London and in Switzerland, according to his LinkedIn profile.
He was an international private wealth advisor with PwC before jumping to Deloitte Switzerland in 2016.
