Kilshaw has spent the past 17 years at fellow Big Four firm KPMG, where most recently he held the role of national chairman of the private client group, and also headed up their international network.
Kilshaw will join EY’s private client team to grow its family office business in the UK. He will be working alongside three partners in the team, John Cooney, Caspar Noble, and Carolyn Steppler.
Regarding the move, Kilshaw said, “This is an exciting opportunity for me. I am really impressed with the ambition and ability of EY to make a big impact on the private client market and relish the opportunity of working with John, Caspar and Carolyn to serve the full spectrum of private clients' needs.”
John Dixon, EY’s head of tax in the UK & Ireland said, “As well as growing our family office practice, he will take an active role in developing and mentoring new talent coming through the team.
"We have ambitions to grow the tax business significantly, and it’s imperative that we have the best people at the helm and coming through every level of the organisation.”
