Geoff leads EY’s Oceania Tax Practice. He has been a partner with the firm for over 20 years, initially specialising in a wide range of domestic and international tax matters, and more recently as the Tax Account Leader on a number of our major accounts in the region.  As a Tax Account Leader, Geoff built relationships with the key stakeholders in EY's clients – not just in Tax, but across finance, HR, legal and procurement.  He ensures that our specialist tax, people advisory and law teams are proactive to those clients’ needs, as well as insightful to their business agenda and priorities.

As the Regional Tax Leader, I am responsible for bringing together our technical subject matter expert teams to go to market across industries and sectors in the Oceania region.

How Geoff is building a better working world

"Tax systems, taxpayers and their advisors are facing a once in a lifetime transformation of tax administration through digital-enablement, and at the same time a breakdown in society’s trust that they are “doing the right thing”. I am driving our initiatives to build and enhance our trusted relationships with the region’s tax authorities and governments.

The transformation of our business to a digitally-enabled, trusted tax advisor is creating a culture of opportunity for all our people."
