Introduction to Meet Our AllStars Series

Introducing a new series call Meet Our AllStars! Each week, we will feature one of the communities top contributors, otherwise known as our AllStars. 

This week we are featuring itonewbie!


About

I have been a specialist in international tax, global mobility, and executive compensation for over 20 years.  In a career that spans 5 countries across 3 regions, I spent 11 years with Big Four in consulting and another 8 years leading global mobility functions of Fortune Global 500 companies before starting my consulting practice in Hong Kong in order to have a more flexible schedule for my family.

 

Accomplishments

During my career in tax consulting with Big Four accounting firms and, subsequently, leadership roles in global mobility, I have developed and implemented strategically-aligned mobility programs, structured cross-border corporate transactions and tax-efficient compensation packages, managed expatriate tax advisory, tax compliance, as well as international payroll, contributed to various greenfield and M&A projects, and supported countless mobile employees and senior executives.  In addition to speaking at regional and national conferences, including those organized by Deloitte, Forum for Expatriate Management, and American Payroll Association, I have also served on the committee of Worldwide ERC, Forum for Expatriate Management, was on Deloitte Hong Kong's Client Advisory Board, and quoted in various industry publications.

 

Fun Facts

My family loves traveling to and living in different parts of the world.  This fits in well with my career and helps me relate to expatriates I work with.  You can probably tell from my avatar that I'm a Star Wars fan and, by my handle, know that I'm not such a newbie in PTO.

 

Products supported

ProConnect Tax Online is my product of choice but I also dabble a bit in its big brother Lacerte.

 

Business info and website

American Expatriate Tax is a part of Contexo Global Mobility Solutions & Tax Consulting Limited, a registered company in Hong Kong.  Together, we help companies and individuals navigate through the complexities of global mobility and related tax issues.  Here is where our clients find a blend of expertise from Big Four accounting firms and Fortune Global 500 companies but the attention of a boutique consulting practice.

Is this a bad time to bring up the fact that you haven't paid your dues yet?

Hate to say I'm still short after the raise but I'll pay my dues now even though it's no longer deductible.

Is this that old "the check is in the mail" routine?

If private courier companies are partnering with USPS, you can bet that the mail will arrive.  This story is proof of that:

Any truth to the rumor that the Mumbai dancing girls were going to be in this week's spotlight?

The girls will usually bring in better ratings, but it is your show so bring on the tax preparers.

@Intuit Austin  - have you ever seen the movie the Jerk?  In the event that you did, Steve Martin had a much better sense of rhythm in the movie than I do.

I tend to look at it more in Lacerte terms and go with -1.
