ETC Tax recruits Simon Denye and Sophie Chamberlain
A growth in demand from both private and commercial clients has led to expansion at ETC Tax. The firm has recruited two senior individuals from much larger competitors after seeing revenue rise by 15 per cent over the last 12 months.
Sophie Chamberlain has joined from Deloitte Manchester’s private client team, where she was an Associate Director. She has a particular focus in the tax affairs of high net worth individuals including family trusts, inheritance tax and wealth succession, personal tax and capital gains tax advice.
Simon Denye has joined Dow Schofield Watts where he was a Partner. Before joining ETC, Simon spent the first ten years at Big 4 firms, Pricewaterhouse Coopers and KPMG. Simon left the big 4 to join a regional independent practice where he was Head of Tax and also a business owner.
After selling his interest in the practice, Simon was appointed Tax Director at CLB Coopers (which was acquired by the Baldwins group) where he split his time heading up their Lancaster Office’s tax department and also being an integral part of their North West tax advisory team.
Simon’s enjoyed a brief but enjoyable period at Dow Schofield Watts, where he ran his own tax consultancy business, prior to being approached by ETC.
Director Andy Wood commented:
“Sophie and Simon add great experience and capability to our leadership team and will respectively lead our private client and corporate tax service lines”.
