“Scott has the leadership capabilities to not only drive the Tax Policy and Advocacy team at The Tax Institute, but to lead the right conversations in tax and to make a mark as we work towards improving our tax system.” said Hurst.
The Tax Institute continues to go from strength to strength. Scott now adds to a growing list of talented people acquired by The Tax Institute, including former Second Commissioner and industry stalwart, Andrew Mills and Robyn Jacobson.
