Greg Limb takes on the role of UK Head of Private Client Advisory, succeeding Dermot Callinan. Hymans Robertson has hired Adam Porter as Associate Investment Research Consultant in the firm’s Investment Consulting practice.

Prior to joining KPMG in 1997, Greg Limb worked at Arthur Andersen in the former professional services firm’s Tax division for almost one and a half years. Previously, from 1990 until 1996, Limb worked at Ernst & Young (EY) as a Tax Supervisor.

In his new role, Limb succeeds Dermot Callinan to the role of UK Head of Private Client Advisory. The role sees Limb responsible for leading more than 150 tax professionals including 18 KPMG Partners and Directors.
