Inspired by KPMG's multidisciplinary approach, Elizabeth recently joined KPMG to lead the firm's indirect tax practice in Western Switzerland.

At KPMG, Elizabeth works with multinational and national clients in all sectors with a special focus on energy and commodity trading. She works closely with her clients to develop their global Indirect tax strategy taking into account their organisational and supply chain structure and manages their VAT on a global basis. She focuses on value creation specifically in the era of Big Data, an area in which she helps clients transform their trade data into value. Elizabeth holds a master's degree in finance and is an AITI chartered tax adviser (CTA) and associate of the Irish Taxation Institute.

Originally, Elizabeth started her career at Ernst & Young in Beirut as a tax consultant while she was still at university. In 2001, she was seconded to Ernst & Young in Dublin where she worked for nine years. During her career at Ernst & Young, Elizabeth worked for many different clients and industries which contributed to the development of her experience in international indirect tax. While in Dublin, in addition to the CTA, she also completed a diploma in investment fund services to better understand the investment fund clients she was serving at that time. In 2010, Elizabeth decided to move to Geneva Switzerland as an international VAT manager at PwC, and quickly rose through the ranks as a result of her capabilities, hard work and determination.

Elizabeth's international experience helps her understand different cultures and how to deal with people with different backgrounds. In addition to this, she speaks English, French, Arabic, Armenian and a little Dutch as she is married to a Dutchman.
