Euan West will be the new office senior partner in Leeds at business advisory firm KPMG, with effect from 1 November 2019.

He will work alongside Christine Hewson, the firm’s North Region Chair, and the Yorkshire based partner and director group who lead the 1,000-strong KPMG team in the region.
Euan returns to Leeds, where he previously worked for many years, following time spent in London and most recently Liverpool, where he has been the firm’s office senior partner for the last two years.

Despite his time based in other regions, he has continued to lead KPMG’s relationships with a number of significant Yorkshire based organisations, and he is widely known within Yorkshire’s corporate community having held market facing roles for the firm since he joined it in 2002, becoming partner in 2011.

In addition to his leadership role in Yorkshire, Euan also sits on KPMG’s Investment Review Board and is a member of its wider Northern Leadership Team.

Commenting on his appointment, Euan said:

“To rejoin KPMG in Leeds, where I cut my teeth in professional services and thoroughly enjoyed more than a decade with the firm earlier in my career, is an absolute delight. Despite a series of roles in other regions, Yorkshire has always remained my home.

“Not only will I join a hugely talented KPMG team, but I‘ll be working amongst a genuinely high calibre business and public sector community. Yorkshire’s economy is of a scale, and with necessary diversity, to play host to an exciting portfolio of organisations from significant blue chip businesses to younger fast growth companies, like those in the tech sector that we support at Nexus.

“In such an active market, I believe there’s the opportunity for professional services firms to make a significant impact with the advice we bring to clients as they pursue their growth ambitions. I’m really looking forward to making new contacts and re-establishing some old ones as we seek to maximise they ways in which KPMG makes a positive contribution to the Yorkshire region.”
