Tan brings over 25 years of experience in the consulting industry to the firm. After starting her career at EY in audit, and a brief spell in internal audit at oil & gas player ConocoPhillips, she subsequently held roles of growing seniority at Alvarez & Marsal, Baker Tilly, Deloitte and most recently EY. 

At both Deloitte and EY she was a partner and Head of the Forensics practice in Singapore, leading a multidisciplinary team of accountants, financial consultants and digital experts. She specialises in the areas of complex fraud and corruption related investigations, financial statement manipulation, asset misappropriation, accounting issues surrounding the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and anti-corruption and litigation support.

Commenting on the appointment, David Sandison, Head of Tax at Grant Thornton Singapore said, “We are delighted to have Belinda on board to support the firm’s clients in identifying, preventing, and solving cases of corporate misdoings. She is highly experienced and well respected in her field, and her extensive work with regulators as well as her insights into a wide range of industries will help us to enhance our forensic advisory practice.”

Earlier this week another partner in EY’s Forensic & Disputes Services division, Frankie Leung, left the firm to join Alvarez & Marsal in China.
