For those of you reading this article, allow me to give you a little background before you read this entire post. You can count on one hand the number of tax recruiters with a track record of performing for clients worldwide, and I am one of them. There are a handful of us that truly understand what is happening throughout the market. In my case, here is the client list to back up my statements.
Throughout my career in executive search for tax professionals, I was retained to place the first U.S. tax person working in China for a U.S. multinational corporation. The client was General Motors and they hired me to bring in a bilingual tax professional to work with the China government authorities in Beijing. I was also retained to recruit for genesis international tax legal practices such as DLA Piper and Baker McKenzie; and also retained by Arthur Anderson and KPMG to set up the US tax practices alongside the European ones years ago. For those of you who have worked with me over the years, you understand my deep expertise connecting tax professionals with tax organizations around the world.
