We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Tom Whittome as the Tax Partner for Sedulo Group.

Tom joins the Sedulo Tax team from City Football Group, where he was responsible for the global tax risk, compliance and reporting of the Premier League football club and wider group with related businesses in major cities around the world, including other football clubs, academies, technical support and marketing companies.

Prior to his tenure with City Football Group, Tom also spent over eight years in tax management positions at one of the top ten accounting firms in the world, Grant Thornton UK LLP, where his experience covered personal tax advice and compliance, corporate tax, international tax, image rights and HMRC investigations.

On what his experience will bring to Sedulo, Tom said:


“I am really excited to join Sedulo and to share my specialist knowledge and experience to support individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses to grow.

“I have seen first-hand the unique problems experienced by entrepreneurs, high net worth individuals and their professional advisers, particularly in the sports industry. Sedulo prides itself on providing holistic financial services to its clients, something of which I strongly believe in and look forward to developing to support clients at every stage of their journey.“

Sedulo Managing Partner, Paul Cheetham-Karcz, added:


“Tom will be a crucial part of our leadership team here at Sedulo and I can’t wait for him to begin getting hands-on with our clients.

“His signing is symbolic of our commitment and desire to operate at a world-class level – as is the track record of our current recruitment drive. Tom has spent the past few years helping the individuals, the club and its owners build the City Football Group franchise globally. As a result, he has expertise in all areas of tax, including corporate, personal, transaction and overseas.

“He is a very exciting recruit and alongside the arrivals of Laura McGowan and David Clarke brings a vast wealth of experience to our team and our ecosystem of clients.”

Following the appointments of Laura and David in the past month, Tom’s appointment marks a hat-trick of high-level hires in quick succession for Sedulo, paving the way for further growth in their respective teams.

The tax team are already recruiting for a Personal Tax Manager, with more roles in the pipeline to appear as the team continues to grow.
