KPMG appoints reward practice lead
Published: by

KPMG has appointed an experiences partner to lead its UK Reward Practice.

David Ellis joins KPMG from BDO, where he served as head of Human Capital and a partner since 2004.

Prior to joining BDO, Ellis spent eight years at Ernst & Young. He is recognised for his technical and consulting expertise across reward, expatriate tax and employment tax.

Mike Linter, head of People Services Tax, says: “We have huge ambitions for our reward practice and indeed for our people services tax practice and I fully expect that David will play a pivotal role in our pursuit of them.”

David Ellis adds: “KPMG has clearly committed to growing its reward practice and I am very excited about the opportunity to spearhead this initiative. The macro-economic, tax and regulatory environment is creating huge demand for advice on effective, long term, remuneration strategies. 

“The trend away from cash bonuses towards long term equity reward, the differential between income tax and capital gains tax rates and the scrutiny over executive compensation packages present major challenges for businesses in designing pay packages.”

KPMG LLP operates from 22 offices across the UK with over 11,000 employees and partners.
