PricewaterhouseCoopers has appointed a new leader for its Cambridge tax team.
The appointment of David Gibbs coincides with his promotion to partner within the firm, in a year which has seen a considerable investment in new recruits to the local practice following a significant increase in work.

He will now lead a team of more than 30 specialists in corporate tax, private client advice, VAT, share schemes, R&D tax credits, employee and ex-pat tax, transfer pricing and international structuring.
David Gibbs, Cambridge tax leader, Pricewaterhouse-Coopers said: “I’m delighted to be leading such a fantastic team of talented people focused on bringing their expertise and knowledge to all types of business transactions.
“As our clients grow and expand they need sound advice and a team that can draw upon the breadth and depth of technical and geographical resource to support them and deliver practical solutions.”
Joining David is corporate tax Director Ludovic Black who has transferred from PwC’s Glasgow office where he gained a wealth of experience in advising larger corporate clients, particularly in transactions and cross border planning.
David Gibbs said: “Ludovic brings great depth to the team having worked for PwC for more than 15 years and previously being the national prize winner in the Scottish accountancy exams.”
Clive Birch, who is senior partner and head of Price-waterhouseCoopers Camb-ridge office, said: “I am delighted to see David’s promotion to partner and that Ludovic is joining us from Glasgow.
