Professional services firm Deloitte has bolstered its Tax group with two new partners from the corporate sector, with extensive experience in banking and infrastructure.
Mr Emanuel Hiou, former Head of Group Taxation with National Australia Bank (NAB), and Mr Mark Hadassin, former Global Tax Director of Babcock & Brown (B&B), recently joined Deloitte and will be based in Melbourne and Sydney respectively.
Deloitte’s head of Taxation, John Womack, said both new partners bring with them many years of experience in their respective fields and are great assets to the firm’s expanding Tax group.
“After a total of 14 years with NAB, Emanuel Hiou brings to us a wealth of commercial and banking experience,” said Mr Womack. “As a Banking Tax partner his tax structuring and advisory skills, in areas such as M&A, capital management, structured financing, tax governance and reform, will add significant depth to Deloitte’s Financial Services Industry Tax group.
“Mark Hadassin’s primary responsibility will be to grow Deloitte’s Infrastructure Tax practice while also working in the M&A space.
“Mark Hadassin has developed a broad range of skills dealing with cutting edge US and European tax issues related to M&A, funding and infrastructure. We’re looking forward to building our capabilities in the infrastructure tax area under his guidance.
“Mr Hiou and Mr Hadassin arrive at Deloitte with great reputations and skills that are highly sought after in the market. We’re excited to have them both on board,” Mr Womack concluded.
