Jo Bateson, tax director in KPMG’s Private Client Advisory practice, has been named in Management Today’s prestigious ‘35 women under 35’ list which showcases the achievements of young talented women in Britain across a range of professions and backgrounds.
Jo, 33, is one of KPMG’s youngest ever tax directors. She specialises in providing tax advice to wealthy individuals and their businesses. Joining KPMG in 2005, Jo quickly won promotion and was appointed as a director in October 2011. Working with a range of eminent individuals and corporate clients, she also established KPMG’s first family limited partnership.
Jo said: “I am really delighted to be included on Management Today’s list, alongside such a great array of talented women. There is no doubt that the business world holds all sorts of possibilities for those that have the drive and commitment to succeed.”
Jo has previously won external recognition by appearing on Private Client Practitioner’s ‘Top 35 under 35’ list for three years running. She has also been selected for KPMG’s own Emerging Leader programme which is designed to develop the leaders of tomorrow.
David Kilshaw, Chair of KPMG’s Private Client Advisory practice, commented: “Jo is the definition of client focused and client friendly. She is a high achiever for one simple reason – she is known and valued by the high achievers at the very top of our biggest clients.”
