Holloway brings over 20 years of experience with him, and has “significant expertise” in consumer business and tax risk management, and specialises in retail and consumer business.
For almost a decade, Holloway worked in-house leading tax functions at Next and Halfords, as well as working as a tax director at Molson Coors, a US listed brewer.
He was also named ‘best in-house tax leader” at the Tolley’s Taxation Awards 2019.

In his new role at Grant Thorton, Lee will focus on the growth of the firm’s tax offering in London, and provide practical tax advice to clients in the consumer and business sector.
Holloway said: “I’m delighted to join such a strong group of partners and help to strengthen what is already a fantastic offering in the consumer business space.
“With increased scrutiny from HMRC around tax governance and control I will utilise nearly a decade of in-house experience of moving corporates to a place of great tax governance and control, to support the firm’s impressive client base.”
