Ludovic Black is a Tax Partner based in Milton Keynes, and joins Mazars from PwC in Cambridge. He will have a particular focus on the Cambridge-MK-Oxford corridor which is likely to see continuing significant development in the knowledge intensive industries in coming years. Ludovic brings a focus on the tech sector, entrepreneurial business, inbounds and large and listed companies, together with significant experience working in M&A and treasury tax. He will work closely with the audit team and other service lines, supporting and complementing their work in the large and listed market in particular.
Mike Hinton is a Business Consulting Partner, working across the Edinburgh and London offices. Mike has extensive experience in business consulting and has worked in industry as both a finance director and a managing director. Over the last two years Mike has built an exceptional NetSuite practice at Coopers Software, and will use his wealth of experience to assist in the continued success and growth of Mazars’ national Business Consulting services.
