CIOT appoints Deloitte’s Head of Tax Policy, Bill Dodwell, to serve as the new Vice President. Fairpo to be new President
The Council also appointed current CIOT Deputy President, Anne Fairpo, to become President from May (succeeding Stephen Coleclough), and the current Vice President, Chris Jones, to advance to Deputy President at the same time. It is traditional for a prospective CIOT President to serve a term as first Vice President, then Deputy President, before taking on the most senior role.
Bill Dodwell commented:
“I am honoured to have been asked by colleagues on the CIOT Council to serve as an Officer of the Institute. The CIOT has an important role to play in promoting greater public understanding of the tax system and I look forward to contributing to its continuous development.”
Stephen Coleclough, current CIOT President, commented:
“I am delighted that Bill has agreed to join the Institute’s team of Officers. His deep understanding of international corporate tax issues is second to none. As Chairman of the Institute’s Technical Committee he has already been at the forefront of the Institute’s policy work and engagement with Government.
“Bill is already rightly established as one of the most high profile UK tax professionals. He maintains a regular presence within the media and public life and uses such opportunities to develop a greater understanding of complex tax issues. When it comes to explaining why it is that companies pay the amount of tax that they do, and busting some of the myths that float around this area, he is one of the best in the business.
“Alongside Anne Fairpo and Chris Jones he will complete a strong team of representatives and leaders of the tax profession when they take office in May.”
