Bradbury to head OECD’s tax policy unit

David Bradbury, former assistant treasurer of Australia, has been appointed head of the tax policy and statistics division at the OECD.

The Global Tax 50 2013 member has been appointed on a three year term, starting April, and will be based in the OECD’s Paris headquarters.

“I am absolutely delighted to be given the opportunity to join the OECD in a role that allows me to contribute to the global public policy debate and pursue my passion for tax policy,” said Bradbury, who added that he is particularly excited about working under the leadership of Pascal Saint-Amans, at a time when the OECD is driving “some of the most important reforms to global tax policy in generations”.
