Alastair McLeish takes over from Sue Bonney as UK head of tax

Alastair McLeish is the new UK head of tax at KPMG.

He succeeds Sue Bonney, who will continue to work with the UK practice ? particularly around advice that fits with the firm's advisory service line, and will continue to head up tax for KPMG Europe.

McLeish has successfully headed up the firm's pensions business to such an extent that its Tax and People Services line will be renamed Tax and Pensions.

"Alastair will bring a fresh perspective to the tax leadership role," said KPMG UK and Europe COO Richard Bennison.
