May 2020: Tim Denley has been appointed as the Head of KPMG Lighthouse for the Asia Pacific region.
KPMG Lighthouse is KPMG’s Global Center of Excellence for data-driven technology, bringing together more than 14,000 experts – including data scientists and engineers – across 17 regional hubs in strategic markets. These teams work with KPMG colleagues around the world to help clients get a clear view of their data and explore ways to turn these insights into value.
Denley has significant experience in leading innovation and technology transformation projects across a wide range of industries, with a focus on advanced technologies ranging from data and analytics, to blockchain and artificial intelligence.
He has been based in Japan for the past 13 years and has built extensive experience across the Asia Pacific region. Most recently, he led the growth of KPMG Lighthouse in the country and has been serving as the Chief Solutions Officer of KPMG Ignition in Tokyo.
Denley commented: “Data has been described as the greatest resource of the twenty-first century with its untapped potential to generate value for organizations. I am excited about KPMG Lighthouse’s mission to help clients on this journey, particularly in a region like Asia Pacific, the home of established and emerging technology players.”
Ken Reid, Head of Advisory, KPMG Asia Pacific, added: “The power of data is a consistent theme in many conversations with organizations, no matter their size or geography. KPMG Lighthouse solutions are increasingly focussed on the use of artificial intelligence or Blockchain technologies – both of which are driven by data. An example of practical application of these technologies is KPMG Origins, a blockchain solution designed to protect the integrity of the supply chain even in very complex and large ecosystems that creates trusted data. We are already seeing the difference these solutions can bring to clients.”
Denley succeeds Anthony Coops, who assumes a new role in KPMG in Australia.
