Definitive Consulting, a leading professional services search firm, has appointed Oleg Rak as a Partner to lead its global Tax and Transfer Pricing offering, with a specific focus on partner level mandates, team moves and firm to firm mergers and acquisitions.

We have considerable cross-practice strength in recruiting at partner level into the Accountancy, Consulting and Legal sectors, and the arrival of Oleg will greatly enhance our global Tax capability across these industries.”
“Oleg’s network and cross-border focus also enables us to better collaborate with key clients between our existing office network across the US, EMEA and Asia Pac, whilst accelerating our plans to open offices in new locations.”
“We are not currently aware of any other partner level search firm that can offer this combination of practice expertise and global reach to the professional services industry. The ability to provide a complete range of services with both global and local office coverage is integral to our client led strategy.”
Oleg Rak added – “Definitive Consulting has a market leading accountancy, consulting and legal search business. It’s exciting to be launching an internationally focussed Tax business and I am looking forward to working with the team here and growing our offering.”
