A prominent member of DFK International has been appointed deputy president of the association.

Roland W. Graf, who is vice chair of the DFK International Tax Committee, will hold the key position until July 2017, when he will take over as president from Demetris Demetriou.

Graf, who is also a former member of the DFK EMEA Executive Committee, says, “There have been a lot of improvements in recent years within DFK International and I am keen to add my ideas and my support to the very good work that has already been instigated by the board of directors and lots of members.”

Roland is a partner at Peters, Schönberger & Partner (PSP), a multi‐disciplinary firm located in Munich, Germany, where he is a tax lawyer. He has a strong interest in international work and firmly believes that is where the future lies for the profession.

“If you close your eyes at the frontiers of your home country you cannot succeed because mid‐size or even smaller clients have to expand and become international if they are not already. Therefore our firms have to grow with the clients and their challenges and think internationally,” he says

Demetris welcomed Roland as his deputy and said he was looking forward to working together as figureheads for the association.

“Roland is well‐known within DFK International due to his active involvement and his breadth of experience and knowledge will be a great asset to the association in his role as deputy president,” says Demetris.
