KPMG UK announces the appointment of Liz Claydon as Head of Deal Advisory, with effect from Monday 1 July.
Liz has been a partner at KPMG for 12 years and during this time has advised on some of the largest and most complex deals across a number of clients and sectors. She started her career at KPMG in Leeds in 1991, training in audit before moving into transaction services, transferring to London in 1999 and during this time, has held a number of leadership roles across the business. Most recently, she was the sector head for KPMG’s UK Life Sciences practice, having spent the previous five years leading the Consumer & Retail sector, alongside her role as deal partner.
Bill Michael, Senior Partner and Chairman at KPMG in the UK, said: “Liz’s wealth of experience leading transactions across different markets and sectors is a huge asset to both our clients and our people. Her extensive experience and expertise will undoubtedly continue to drive our business forward in the months and years ahead.”
Liz Claydon, UK head of Deal Advisory, added: “I am incredibly proud to be taking on this leadership role, at what is an enormously exciting time for our Deal Advisory business as we support our clients in continuing to both expand and rationalise their businesses in an increasingly complex environment. With uncertainty comes opportunity, and I’m looking forward to helping our clients unlock value and realise their growth ambitions.”
KPMG’s UK Deal Advisory team advises on some of the most significant transactions in the market, from large multinational cross-border transactions and high-profile IPOs to working with privately-owned businesses across the UK on their fundraising, exit and acquisition strategies. Together, our teams of M&A, valuations, separation and integration, strategy and restructuring specialists unlock value for our clients and their stakeholders, whether they are buying, selling, partnering, funding or fixing a business.
A total of 110 partners lead a practice of approximately 1750 Deal Advisory professionals. The practice generated over £394m in revenues last year.
