I am an independent adviser drawing on a strong background in tax administration and policy development with considerable experience of working in an international environment.  As a member of the UK Senior Civil Service for 14 years, I demonstrated an ability to identify and implement major improvements to the tax system, employing a mix of policy changes and operational improvements. At the OECD I built on this experience, working in an international context for the benefit of both more advanced tax administrations and developing countries that participate in the OECD’s global relations programme. I am an international fellow of the Tax Administration Research Centre at Exeter University.
