The Cragus Group has expanded its tax leadership team with the appointment of Mariel Yard in the Dubai office, United Arab Emirates.

Yard joins the team from Jumeirah (a Dubai based luxury international hotel chain, and part of Dubai Holding), where she worked as their in-house tax director, a role that was later expanded to include vice president of finance, tax and treasury, and becoming a member of the global leadership team. She also served as a member of the World Travel and Tourism Counsel Taxation Initiative Working Group and as a member on the Merchant Advisory Board of Network International.

With over 20 years of experience in auditing corporate finance, tax and treasury roles with multinational and multicultural organisations both in Cyprus and Dubai, Yard has extensive knowledge in all areas of treasury, finance and tax across a variety of complex jurisdictions. Her international tax expertise covers cross border transactions, intellectual property structuring, transfer pricing, rulings and dealing with tax authorities, tax compliance as well as indirect and personal taxation. She has also been involved in VAT preparation and training in several jurisdictions, including the UAE.

Yard began her career with PwC, before moving to NCR (Middle East) Limited as an in-house finance manager for the MEA region and later head of finance and IT at Eurofreight Logistics. In 2005, she moved back to PwC to the international tax structuring team in Cyprus and then Dubai.
