Global marketing director appointed for Taxand


Taxand announced that Abigail Tarren has been named global marketing director. With a presence in more than 40 countries around the world, the Taxand network is comprised of tax consultancies and law firms specializing in tax advisory services and operates completely independently from the auditing field.

Ms. Tarren, who is based in London, joins Taxand from the UK-based tax firm Chiltern plc. While at Chiltern, she led a team of marketing and business development specialists and spearheaded brand strategy, marketing communications and business development. She also served on the international marketing committee for the launch of Taxand.

"Abigail's appointment is a significant step forward for the Taxand network and clearly demonstrates our commitment to the future development of the Taxand brand," said Frederic Donnedieu, chairman of Taxand and a partner in Arsene Taxand, Taxand's French member firm. "She has an outstanding background in marketing and business development and will play a key role in our efforts moving forward."

"In a very short time, Taxand has set the standard for providing independent and objective tax advice that contributes to our clients' success by anticipating and advising on the tax implications related to their most strategic business decisions," said Robert N. Lowe, Jr., CEO of Alvarez & Marsal Taxand and head of the Taxand international marketing committee. "As we look ahead, Abigail will be instrumental in continuing to raise the visibility of the Taxand network and supporting and enhancing our strong, global brand."

Prior to joining Chiltern, Ms. Tarren served as head of business development at Billetts, an international media evaluation consultancy. Earlier in her career, she worked in the non-profit sector, leading fundraising for the Royal Society of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce.
