printer Mail

Welcome to 40 under 40 for 2015. This publication gives our pick of some of the best young professionals working in tax today.

40 under 40 2015 coverI offer my congratulations to all the individuals profiled below. This is the third time we have published this guide. We received a record number of entries, and the quality was exceptional.

What sets this guide apart is the methodology behind our selection. Everyone will have an opinion on who should be listed, so, to help us make the best selection, a team of independent and experienced researchers evaluated all submissions. This was no small undertaking. The team took up hundreds of references from clients, employers and peers. We were looking for technical excellence, commercial nous and first-rate client skills.

Thank you to everyone involved and, in particular, to those who supplied detailed references. The standard of entries made for very difficult decisions. Everyone profiled comes very highly rated.
