Commenting on his decision to join Alvarez & Marsal (A&M), James Harris, said, “I’m excited to be joining a strong team of advisers at A&M and will draw upon my experience with some of the UK’s largest listed companies to further strengthen the executive compensation offering. I look forward to supporting A&M’s growing list of clients, free from the audit conflicts that hamper other firms.”

A&M Taxand is an independent tax group affiliated with the global firm. Consisting of experienced tax professionals, dedicated to providing customised tax advice to clients and investors across a broad range of industries, the firm offers clients a choice in advisors from the US, and in the UK from its base in London.

Harris’ arrival bolsters the continued expansion of Taxand’s executive compensation services team in the UK capital. For more than 20 years, he has worked to advise company boards on all aspects of executive remuneration strategy, design and implementation. Prior to joining A&M, he was as a Senior Director in Deloitte’s executive compensation practice where he worked with some of the largest FTSE 100 and fast-growing FTSE 250 companies on a pan-sectoral basis.

Head of the UK Executive Compensation practice and Managing Director at Alvarez & Marsal Taxand, David Tuch, remarked, “James’s appointment exemplifies our growth ambitions and is a key milestone for the Executive Compensation team as we develop our services in the UK. His vast experience in advising the remuneration committees of UK listed companies of all sizes on all aspects of their remuneration strategy will prove invaluable in helping our clients retain talent as they navigate through the challenging macroeconomic environment that lies ahead.”

Harris is the team’s third Managing Director, primarily responsible for advising board remuneration committees of FTSE listed companies. The practice is also planning on complimenting his appointment with a number of additional hires to further expand the team.
