EY announces the appointment of Jay Nibbe to Global Vice Chair for Tax, leading more than 35,000 tax professionals around the world. He chairs EY’s Tax Executive Committee and continues his role as a member of EY’s Global Executive, the organization’s highest management body.

Nibbe, who joined EY in 1985, was most recently the Chair of EY’s Global Accounts Committee and Deputy Area Managing Partner for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA). Nibbe also previously served as Americas Vice Chair of Tax and Americas Tax Managing Partner.

He takes charge at a time when tax is commanding more attention in the C-suite and in the boardroom. These executives increasingly understand how getting tax right is critical to growing successfully in the global economy. EY’s network spans more than 140 countries, providing clients with the right approach, specialization and resources to address all of their tax needs, both globally and locally.

Nibbe remains actively engaged in client services, and continues to work as a senior advisory partner to several clients.

Prior to his leadership roles in the Americas, from 1995 to 1999, Nibbe was based in Moscow where he led Tax in the Commonwealth of Independent States for four years, developing EY practices in Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Ukraine.

Nibbe received an Accounting and Finance degree from Minnesota State University and a Master’s Degree in Business Taxation from the University of Minnesota.
