Patrick Stevens, a past president of the Chartered Institute
of Taxation in the UK, has become the
organisation’s new tax policy director, in
succession to John Whiting, who retired on April 1 to become a
non-executive director of HM Revenue & Customs.
Stevens will retire as a partner of EY to take up his new
role which will mean he will be the lead spokesperson on
tax policy for the largest professional body for
tax professionals in the UK. He stepped down as president of
CIOT at the end of his one-year term in May.
At EY his clients included entrepreneurial companies and
their shareholders, professional partnerships, retail
investment funds and private clients.
