Welcome to the Team
We are delighted to announce that Annemarie O’Brien from Newport, Co. Tipperary joined our practice earlier in the year as a senior tax manager.
Before joining CTS, Annemarie trained and progressed to manager level in Grant Thornton in Limerick. While training to become a Chartered Tax Adviser, Annemarie achieved first place in Ireland in her Part 2 exams.
Since joining CTS in May, Annemarie has already established herself as an integral part of the practice. She has a vast knowledge and expertise across the various tax heads and is particularly strong in relation to technical queries and legislative interpretation.
In her role as senior tax manager with CTS, Annemarie is heavily involved in Corporate Restructurings, Corporation Tax, VAT, Personal Tax and Succession Planning.
Despite being from Tipperary, Annemarie has no sports knowledge whatsoever and Fergal’s hurling commentary is lost on her! Instead she is an avid animal lover and volunteers with animal welfare groups in her spare time.
Corey graduated with a first class honours degree in Law & Accounting from University of Limerick in 2017 and is currently studying with the Irish Tax Institute to become a Chartered Tax Adviser.
Corey has previously completed a work placement with Ernst and Young (EY) in Galway as part of his degree.
A committed sportsperson from Mayo, Corey plays hurling for the Castlebar Mitchels Club and is a current member of the Mayo Senior Hurling team. He represented Ireland in the International Hurling/Shinty competition in 2016. While going to college in UL, Corey also dedicated his summers to underage coaching in his local club.
We are pleased to announce the promotion of our colleague Caroline Kennedy to the position of Tax Manager.
Caroline joined CTS four years ago as a tax trainee after graduating from NUIG with a Bachelor of Civil Law, followed by a Masters of Law awarded by UCC. She qualified as Chartered Tax Adviser in 2016 after years of dedicated and continuous study.
Caroline has progressed rapidly and has met all of the challenges she was presented with. She developed and demonstrated a strong aptitude for taxation and grew into the role of a manager very naturally.
We would like to congratulate Caroline on her outstanding performance in the years leading up to her promotion.
