San Francisco-based IPA 100 firm Andersen has brought on Louis Cole as a managing director to focus on state and local tax (SALT) matters in its commercial practice.
Cole has over 30 years of experience in various areas of tax, including M&A, deal advisory, private equity, federal, and state and local tax. Prior to joining Andersen, he was a director at KPMG, and previously held key SALT leadership positions at Grant Thornton, Deloitte and EY.
“Louis is an established leader in the state and local tax space with an in-depth understanding of both the business and technical issues related to corporate reorganizations and life-event planning,” says U.S. country managing director Dan DePaoli. “His ability to provide clients with a full-spectrum portfolio of services will be an asset to our commercial team.”
