Alex joins from Grant Thornton and advises clients on all aspects of global mobility, incentive and employment tax planning and compliance. He previously spent four years at PwC.

Tom Shave, partner at Smith & Williamson commented: “We are very excited to welcome Alex to Smith & Williamson as a partner in our Employer Solutions team. This is a high growth area for the firm and Alex’s talent, experience and network will be critical to our success.”

Alex added: “Smith & Williamson is a firm which is ideally placed to assist agile businesses to adapt to changing circumstances, develop and thrive. In the aftermath of the current pandemic it is clear that the shape of the workforce will change. From a reward perspective, we can assist where there is a need to re-forecast and set new objectives within existing and new incentive arrangements. There will also inevitably be changes to how the globally mobile workforce are accounted for, plus UK employers will need to keep in mind the upcoming IR35 changes.”

“I want Smith & Williamson to be the go-to firm for all people issues, helping organisations to fully integrate their benefit, incentives and mobility policies to give and get the best from their people.”
