Guy began his transfer pricing career with Ernst & Young and was specifically recruited for his industrial engineering / MBA background.

At WTP, Guy continues to apply his supply chain expertise combined with his years of valuation experience to develop transfer pricing models that help companies achieve their cash flow and tax planning objectives.

Recognizing an opportunity to organize and manage the transfer pricing function on a worldwide basis, Guy drove the development of TransPortal, a global transfer pricing management platform. As co-founder and CEO, Guy sets the strategic direction of TransPortal, oversees on-going product development, and provides technical transfer pricing support.
