WTS Global introduces high profile Transfer Pricing Leadership Team with global coverage
The WTS Global Transfer Pricing Leadership Team has grown to include 14 high-profile experts from around the world, representing the Americas, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa), and APAC (Asia-Pacific) regions. Changes in the Global Service Line (GSL) structure signal an increased focus on regional investment and initiatives, deeper integrated cooperation within the network, and a shared goal of building on the growth and success of the Transfer Pricing GSL over the past decade.
Melanie Appuhn-Schneider has joined Jared Walls as a Co-Head of the Transfer Pricing GSL, with a core team including three Regional Leaders: Cristian E. Rosso Alba, responsible for the Americas region, Molvin Yiu, representing Asia-Pacific and the TP Center of Excellence in the Philippines, and Valentin Lescroart, leading the EMEA region together with four Sub-Regional Leaders: Chris Liu in Western Europe, Tamás Gyányi in Eastern Europe, Kapil Bhatnagar in the Middle East, and Mohammad Akshar Maherally in Africa.
To address emerging issues and other specialty areas of transfer pricing, WTS Global has also organized dedicated thought leadership groups – known as Mindset Hubs – in the areas of Tax Controversy (led by Taco Wiertsema in the Netherlands), Treasury and Financial Services (co-led by Melanie Appuhn-Schneider in Germany and Andy Neuteleers in Belgium), Digital Solutions (led by Andreas Riedl in Germany), and Data Analytics (led by Michel Braun in Germany). In addition, Frank Schwarte will serve as the WTS Global TP Markets Leader, drawing from a cross-regional team of experts.
