Moray Barber joins EY’s Aberdeen tax team
EY in Scotland has announced that Moray Barber has joined the firm as a tax partner based in Aberdeen. He will primarily serve the energy sector.
Mr Barber was previously with KPMG and has more than 20 years’ experience supporting clients, predominantly in the oil and gas sector.
Derek Leith, EY’s managing partner in Aberdeen, said:
“The appointment of Moray is a boost for our clients based in Aberdeen and the north east. EY has a strong brand in the local market maintained by a large and experienced tax team. Moray will bring fresh ideas and impetus with a particular focus on entrepreneurial businesses which will enable us to broaden our service offering. It is important to me that Moray is able to make his mark on our business so he will lead the tax practice in Aberdeen and compliment me in in both my office managing partner and global oil and gas tax sector roles. I am also delighted that Moray shares my passion to see the north-east economy adapt and diversify to embrace the economic opportunities of the future. Oil and gas will continue to have a vital role to play in the local economy but the requirements to decarbonise production facilities and the wider transition to sustainable sources of energy present opportunities for the service sector that must be capitalised upon. I am pleased that at a time when the north east economy is facing a slow recovery from another downturn in oil price that EY is able to demonstrate its commitment to continuing investment.”
