KPMG appoints UK tax and pensions leader

Alastair McLeish will become the KPMG UK head of tax and pensions on 1 July.

McLeish is currently head of people services at KPMG UK. In his new role, he succeeds Sue Bonney, who is the head of tax at KPMG Europe and will continue to work with the UK tax practice.

“[McLeish] has built our highly successful pensions advisory business, which is now acknowledged as the market leader in advising corporates and has run the rest of our people services business over the last 18 months,” KPMG Europe chief operating officer Richard Bennison said.

“Our pensions business is now so large and successful that we have decided to change the name of our overall tax practice from tax and people services to tax and pensions to reflect the significance of this service line. Alastair will bring a fresh perspective to the tax leadership role.”

Jane McCormick has been selected to head corporate tax at KPMG UK.
