Philippe Norre joins Baker Tilly Middle East as Group Head of Tax
Baker Tilly Middle East has announced that Philippe Norre has joined the leadership team as Group Head of Tax. He is based in the UAE HQ of the Group.
Baker Tilly Middle East operates as one Firm across all GCC countries and beyond in the Middle East and East Africa, having 50 office locations. Philippe Norre now takes up overall responsibilities for the Tax, Taxology and Legal service line for all offices.
For Norre this is now a step outside of the Big 4 environment where he has been working in various jurisdictions for over 28 years. But it is a continuation in the GCC and Middle East where he has been advising both governments and businesses on tax matters since 2008. He was Head of Tax and Corporate Services at KPMG Bahrain for the last 4 years.
Norre commented: “Joining Baker Tilly Middle East has both been a personal decision, finding an opportunity to lead and develop a team that seamlessly works across the whole Middle East and a client-focused decision to be now able to work with businesses on their tax affairs across all jurisdictions where they do business. The focus is on being true business consultants and to support clients across all jurisdictions with tailored advice, end-to-end service propositions and tax technology solutions.”
