Tax Director

Adrian heads up the firm’s Employer Solutions and Private Client service line

The Employer Solutions practice provides holistic advice and compliance for their employees. This ranges from the implement and roll out of assignment policies, long term incentive plans and equity schemes to conducting employer compliance reviews to ensure that their employer obligations are met, including the running of payroll.

The Private Client department looks after high net worth individuals, their families and their businesses. It provides holistic advice and compliance services covering residence planning, transactional support and structuring to ensure that their tax affairs are compliant and tax efficient.

Over his career, in both the UK and Singapore, and leveraging off his US Enrolled Agent background, Adrian has advised clients on their UK, US and Singapore tax matters. This mulit-faceted international background allows him to take a more holistic cross-border approach to finding the optimal solution to each client’s unique needs. This has required coordination of advice for many of the countries that Grant Thornton has a presence in. 

Adrian has over 14 years’ experience in tax, starting his career in London with Grant Thornton UK LLP as a Global Mobility Tax and a US private client tax advisor. He then moved to Singapore in August 2015 to “walk the talk” and sample life as an expatriate, an experience he brings to bear when advising employers, their employees and his private clients.
