BDO appoints new international tax partner: Julia McCullagh
BDO LLP has strengthened its corporate tax practice with the appointment of a new partner.
Julia McCullagh joins the firm’s Baker Street office in London as part of the international corporate tax team. She previously worked for PwC both in the UK and US as well as spending five years working in-house within in the consumer goods industry.
Julia’s role at BDO will see her specialise in helping clients manage all tax aspects of their UK and overseas operations including cross border operating models and transfer pricing. Her expertise spans across industries but she has a particular focus on the pharmaceutical sector and consumer markets.
Commenting on her appointment, Julia said:
“BDO has a fantastic network of tax specialists both in the UK and internationally so I am excited to build relationships with my new colleagues and further grow the skillset of the team.
“We are seeing businesses facing increasingly diverse and complex international tax challenges. I look forward to helping BDO’s clients respond to these challenges and ensure they are fit for the future.”
Paul Eagland, managing partner at BDO, commented:
“Effectively managing change is essential for the UK’s ambitious, high-growth businesses to succeed as they navigate the global tax landscape, so I’m thrilled to welcome Julia and her wealth of experience to our international tax team.
“It has been 12 months since our merger with Moore Stephens LLP and we’ve had an incredible year. Since we merged, BDO has appointed more than ten new partners including Julia, promoted 1,500 people across the business and hired a record number of trainees. Our investment in people is a key factor to our success and I look forward to watching the BDO team continue to grow in the year ahead.”
