WTS, a global full-service provider of tax, financial & deal advisory, is driving forward the expansion of its Digital division with the addition of two new teams led by the established tax technology experts Jochen Würges and Michel Braun. The Digital division now has over 250 specialists for the digitisation of tax processes, thereby reinforcing its position as a market-leader.
"Last year, we bundled our digital services into a new Digital division and have now significantly reinforced this division once again. We offer one of the most extensive range of services on the market and are delighted to be able to build on this with the expertise of Jochen Würges, Michel Braun and their teams. If you are looking to digitise tax processes, there is no avoiding WTS", commented Fritz Esterer, CEO of the WTS Group.
Jochen Würges joins us from EY, where he has been an Associate Partner in the Tax Technology & Transformation division since 2014, advising tax function operations on all aspects of digital transformation. He specialises in the implementation of IT-based solutions for tax reporting, declarations and reporting obligations as well as the implementation of data analysis using pioneering technologies. Prior to this, he worked for three years as Salary Partner at Luther and seven years at KPMG. Jochen Würges brings a team of eight others with him to WTS.
Michel Braun joins WTS from KPMG. He has been with the auditing company since 2005 - most recently as Head of Transfer Pricing Technology & Innovation.
