Evelyn Partners appoints head of tech and transformation services

Kiddle has spent over 20 years in tax technology

Evelyn Partners has announced the appointment of Laurence Kiddle as its new head of technology and transformation.

Kiddle, who joins Evelyn Partners’ professional services business, will provide support to businesses to help them manage the complex world of tax and regulatory compliance.

He has experience helping businesses simplify their operations through process improvement and redesign, and custom and off-the-shelf tech deployments.

Kiddle has spent over 20 years in tax technology. He trained as a tax adviser at Arthur Andersen and since then has had leadership roles in the ‘Big Four’, as a partner in Deloitte’s Tax Management Consulting team, and in the tax software industry as managing director of the EMEA business for Thomson Reuters and more recently as CEO at Arkk.

Kiddle said: “I am very excited to be joining a forward-thinking firm that is willing to try new things and bring in specialists from a range of professions to help clients better meet the challenges posed by tax authorities demanding more and more electronic data.

“It is this innovative approach that attracted me to Evelyn Partners – and this same approach will help our clients transform the way they think about process and technology. I am looking forward to sharing my experience with clients to help establish Evelyn Partners as the go-to adviser in this space.”

Justin Arnesen, partner at Evelyn Partners, added: “I’m delighted to welcome Laurence to Evelyn Partners. His considerable experience gained at leading consultancies and software providers, as well as time spent as an in-house adviser, will be invaluable to our clients. He brings a unique perspective on the market for technology and how this interacts with in-house processes, people and data, and I am looking forward to working closely with him to build this practice at Evelyn Partners.”
