Pure Search has significantly strengthened its service portfolio with the appointment of John Dixon
, former Tax Managing Partner for EY UK, to lead its new Consulting practice.
Pure Search Consulting will provide advisory services to professional services firms, in house tax departments of multinational companies, and private equity houses. The initial focus will be on clients who are looking to achieve organisational change through aligning people with strategy, driven by increased and evolving regulation, and corporate requirements for greater transparency and compliance.
“As the leading Governance Search and Selection business, Pure Search already has an intimate understanding of the landscape for talent in its core specialisms of Tax, Finance, Legal, Risk and Compliance” says Dixon “Our Consulting practice will be closely aligned with Pure Search in sourcing any recruitment opportunities we identify.”
, UK CEO, comments “John is a proven business leader with a track record of consistently delivering strategic growth through people and performance. His nearly seven year stint as UK Head of Tax for EY, prior to his retirement in 2014, saw his firm deliver market leading growth ahead of its big 4 rivals. I am exceptionally pleased to have him on board.”
