Darren Mills returns to Alzarez & Marsal Taxand as a Managing Director in the NY office
Alvarez & Marsal Taxand has recruited Managing Director Darren Mills back into the firm. He joins from Dixon Hughes Goodman where he has been a tax partner for the past 20 months.
Based in New York, Mr. Mills first joined Alvarez & Marsal’s start-up tax advisory practice nearly a decade ago to help build a more responsive, entrepreneurial and world-class alternative to audit-based accounting firms subject to related conflicts of interest.
A&M’s U.S. tax practice was formed in 2004 to work with companies and investors, and help address complex domestic and international tax matters without audit-based conflicts of interest. To best service multi-national businesses, A&M also became a founding member of Taxand, the first international organization of leading independent tax firms that today has a presence in nearly 50 countries around the world.
With more than 20 years of experience working with multi-national corporations on federal and international tax issues, including cross border M&A and foreign tax credits, Mr. Mills has significant expertise structuring foreign investments and managing issues surrounding consolidated return regulations. In previous roles, he has worked across a variety of sectors including chemical, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, distribution and technology, and brings a deep understanding of Accounting for Income Taxes (ASC 740) technical issues.
Mr. Mills has in-depth knowledge of tax analytics, Subpart F, policy issues surrounding tax inversions and foreign tax credits. He helps clients address complex tax questions and advises on best practices for using tax data to add value.
“We’re finding that an increasing number of companies are behind in putting their tax processes in place and making this function more value-driven,” said Albert Liguori, a Managing Director with Alvarez & Marsal Taxand in New York. “Darren’s return to A&M and his experience in tax analytics demonstrates our emphasis on helping our clients capture and analyze data that allows them to make more informed decisions about their practices.”
Mr. Mills is a widely published industry thought leader and has also served as an Adjunct Professor in graduate taxation courses at the University of Baltimore and at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey. He is a Certified Public Account (CPA) in the Commonwealth of Virginia, the States of Florida and New Jersey and a licensed attorney in the State of New Jersey (inactive in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania).
