KPMG UK has announced the appointment of nine new partners across its Deal Advisory practice in each respective area of expertise.
The promotions include Emily Watkins in Deal Analytics, Anthony Ball and Gwyn Llewelyn in Corporate Finance, Ashish Sarkar, Francesca Scott and Mark Harpe in the Strategy Group, and Guan Yeo, Simon Wormald and Wafa Jafriin the Transaction Advisory Services.
Two other partner appointments were also made earlier this year, with Chris Croft and Tim Nicholson from Corporate Finance joining the partnership.
Additionally, a further 24 colleagues across the practice have been promoted to director, while 151 have been promoted to a range of roles from assistant manager to associate director.
Liz Claydon, head of KPMG UK’s Deal Advisory practice, said: “I’m immensely proud of the nine newly appointed partners and the many other colleagues who have progressed within the Deal Advisory and Strategy practice. I look forward to supporting them in their continued success.
“With four of our newly promoted partners being female, I’m also thrilled that our focus on championing greater diversity within the sector has continued.”
She added: “Whilst there’s a shadow of uncertainty around the short-term economic outlook with the new variant, we know that the focus for all will ultimately be on recovery and growth. Our Deal Advisory and Strategy practice has an incredibly important role to play in this, as businesses and investors look to navigate challenges.”
