E&Y US makes financial services appointments

Ernst & Young (E&Y) US has appointed
Dmitri Semenov as a financial services partner and George Tsantes
as a financial services principal.

Semenov has 12 years of experience structuring
cross-border transactions for alternative investment funds and
their management companies, as well as US multinational groups.

He joined E&Y from PricewaterhouseCoopers,
where he was a member of the international tax services hedge fund
practice.

Semenov’s responsibility at E&Y will be to
focus on international tax issues for alternative investment
firms.

 “[Semenov’s] deep knowledge and
experience advising on international tax issues will complement our
strong asset management tax practice,” E&Y financial services
and global hedge fund practice co-leader of tax Michael Serota
said.

Tsantes has been appointed as a principal
within the financial services office’s IT advisory services
group.

Tsantes has 20 years of financial services and
consulting experience.

Before joining E&Y, he was the executive
vice president and chief technology officer of Intersections, a
provider of identity and credit management for consumers and small
businesses.

At E&Y, Tsantes will lead the information
security practice, which helps financial services companies assess,
transform and sustain their information security programmes and
infrastructure. 

E&Y IT advisory services leader John
Weisel said Tsantes’s extensive experience will strengthen the
advice and programmes E&Y implements for its clients.

“Preventing data breaches and securing
financial firms’ information infrastructure is critical in today’s
information-intensive environment, particularly amid substantial
regulatory change that sophisticated fraudsters will use as an
opportunity to attack,” Weisel said.
