Massimiliano Messina is a highly experienced restructuring advisor and CFO with more than two decades’ experience leading complex turnaround projects and finance functions at large corporates across Europe. 

He has particular experience in the automotive sector, having led the turnaround programme for Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe on behalf of General Motors as European CFO, as well as being appointed Executive Finance Director of Delphi EMEA at a time when Delphi Corp. had filed for Chapter 11 protection. 

He has also spent significant time working in the manufacturing and retail sectors. He held the role of head of transformation at Swiss building materials manufacturer LafargeHolcim Group, and was also Group COO of leading French retailer Vivarte Group where he co-led the financial and operational restructuring of the Group. 

Massimiliano joins KPMG from PwC where he led the firm’s UK CRO and turnaround practice, having also previously worked as a senior advisor for Alix Partners in Paris.

Mark Raddan, head of KPMG’s special situations group, said: “We are delighted to welcome Massimiliano to our market-leading global restructuring practice. His appointment adds further firepower to our ability to support clients across multiple jurisdictions on high-end, complex, cross-border restructurings at a time when organisations across the world are facing the most testing of times. I know his vast experience both as an advisor and as a C-suite executive will bring a sharp perspective to conversations with clients.”

Massimiliano Messina said: “KPMG has an enviable reputation for consistently delivering innovative approaches to the most complex of restructuring engagements.  Currently we’re seeing organisations right across the globe working collaboratively with investors, lenders, customers and supply chains to navigate their way through such unchartered waters. KPMG’s international network of restructuring practitioners has enormous experience that it can bring to bear in situations of stress and distress, and I am very much looking forward to working with my new colleagues to assist our clients in these extraordinary times.”
