Senior In-House Tax Appointments in the US

Tuesday, 22 January 2008

At Marathon Oil, Stephen Landry replaced tax veteran William Meara as tax VP. Landry, who was director of tax, compliance and reporting for Marathon, succeeded Meara on 1 January 2008. Landry joined Marathon in January 2007. Previously, he spent 22 years with Ernst & Young. He became tax partner for E&Y in 1998 and transferred to the Houston energy practice in 2000.

Viacom has appointed Jay Kushner to a newly-created role as senior vice-president of global taxation and treasury. He will report to Thomas Dooley, CFO of Viacom. Kushner joined Viacom in June 2005 as the company's vice-president and general tax counsel. Before joining Viacom, he was treasurer and general tax counsel at Young & Rubicam, a global advertising agency and marketing services company. Prior to that he led the international tax operations at PepsiCo and was an executive with Coopers & Lybrand.

SG comment: Whilst the general perception is that tax skills are easily transferable between different sectors, I think the above two appointments show that perhaps the very top tax jobs will be taken by tax execs who have deep understanding and experience of a company's sector.
