KPMG has appointed Adrian Griffiths to head up the firm’s UK Life Sciences practice.

Adrian has more than 20 years’ business transformation experience across a broad range of sectors, and since joining KPMG in 2009 Adrian has played a key role in leading the relationship with major pharmaceutical clients. He is succeeding Liz Claydon, who is now leading the firm’s Deal Advisory team in the UK.

Dan Thomas, Head of Corporates at KPMG in the UK, comments: “Adrian will lead the team at a hugely challenging time for the pharma industry, as the pace of change continues to accelerate in the face of economic and political uncertainty. Our clients are operating in a highly-regulated environment with pricing and funding pressures, policy changes, disruptive technologies and an increased focus on data security. Adrian’s wealth of experience and vision is exactly what our clients need and will help drive our team forward in the years ahead.”

Adrian adds: “I’m proud to be leading such a substantial sector for the firm, which is continuing to grow year-on-year. I look forward to continuing to evolve our footprint across the industry and continuing to work with such a fantastic and talented community.”

The team of doctors, scientists, accountants, and business consultants provide a broad range of advisory, consulting, tax, independent audit and accounting services to clients across the industry.
