For those of you who don’t know Liz, she was the first hire that the BLT founders made way back in 1988, and for the bulk of her career, Liz focused on Indirect Tax recruitment, before in recent years using her unsurpassed knowledge and experience to set up BLT’s Executive Coaching division and establishing the hugely popular, successful and we’d go so far as to say, crucial Women in Indirect Tax Networking Groups. We’re not fully saying goodbye, as Liz will continue to run the Networking Groups with our full support under the BLT banner in the years to come, as well as continuing to develop her own Executive Coaching business.
