General Atlantic hires GE head of tax

People Thumbnail

After many years at the US energy multinational, Michael Gosk has taken on the role of operating partner at global growth equity firm General Atlantic.

Gosk worked for General Electric (GE) for more than a decade, during which time he presided over the tax team at GE Capital and later the entire company, responsible for more than 1,000 professionals spread across 40 countries. He became vice president of tax in 2016 after helping to secure the sale of GE’s financial services businesses.

GE transferred much of its tax department to PwC in April 2017. The Big 4 firm hired more than 600 accountants, lawyers and tax advisors from GE to establish a new global team to oversee the company’s tax affairs. The US multinational retained a streamlined team of 20 corporate tax professionals to manage a team of 250 employees.

Gosk will provide General Atlantic’s investment team with financial and tax advice. The New York-based group has more than $31 billion assets under its management. The group focuses its investment strategy on four sectors: consumer products, financial services, healthcare and technology.
