Outgoing Tax and Legal leader Venkatesh Srinivasan, who was at the helm of the Tax and Legal practices in EY Romania for almost 15 years, is leaving Romania to begin a new chapter in his professional life as a member of the EY Global Compliance and Reporting (GCR) Global Executive team and the GCR Global Talent Hub Leader at EY Bangalore, India.
