David Nickson leaves EY London to rejoin KPMG

 In Ernst Young, EY, KPMG, Tax Partner Moves

David Nickson, previously a tax partner at Ernst and Young, has joined KPMG as a tax partner within the Information, Communication and Entertainment (ICE) practice. Within the practice, he will be a key member of KPMG’s media and technology teams in London, advising on cross-border structuring and financing, and intellectual property planning.

Having originally trained and worked at KPMG’s Birmingham office from 1993 to 2000, David joined Ernst and Young as a partner in 2001.

During his career David has spent a number of years living in the U.S. and has extensive experience of delivering multinational projects involving North American and European operations.

Commenting on his new role, David Nickson, said:

“I am delighted to be returning to KPMG at this immensely exciting time for media and technology businesses. Convergence of technologies, fixed and mobile telephony, broadband and TV is changing the landscape for both traditional broadcasters and telephone companies. This, together with the e-commerce boom and creation of virtual worlds such as ‘Second Life’ are presenting new opportunities and new challenges for business.”

Simon Palmer, head of information, communication and entertainment tax at KPMG, said:

“David’s appointment will be of great value to our ICE tax practice. Tax is complex at the best of times, but companies operating in our sector face particular challenges. They tend to operate in rapidly evolving industries, often in global cyberspace, but with a regulatory framework predicated on rules applying to individual countries existing in the real physical world. David’s expertise will complement and enhance our offering in a market where we see great potential for growth.”
