Keeping up with the changes in the industry following the Brexit vote, one of the world’s largest firms by revenue has made major executive moves in its UK insurance practice.
Finance giant PricewaterhouseCoopers has appointed Lindsay J’afari-Pak as UK insurance tax market leader, succeeding Colin Graham who will take on a global role.
The company said J’afari-Pak’s industry and advisory experience makes her well placed to lead the UK insurance tax practice during a continued period of significant change.
“Our people are passionate about the work they do for our insurance clients, and I am looking forward to the next chapter, as we embark on a period of momentous change in the UK,” she said.
J’afari-Pak has been in the industry for more than 20 years, starting her career with PwC before becoming a tax adviser and director at law firm Herbert Smith and insurers AXA
UK and Friends Life.
She returned to PwC as a partner in 2013 and later led the UK firm’s tax services to the life insurance industry.
J’afari-Pak replaces Graham, who has been appointed as global insurance tax leader after leading the UK practice for five years.
PwC has also bolstered its tax team in the UK insurance practice with the promotions of Ayesha Patel and Andy Rosam to director.
