KPMG has appointed Tom Brown, currently European head and deputy global head of investment management, to lead the global investment management practice from 1 October 2012.
Brown, who has been with KPMG’s investment management practice since 1999, will be based in London, overseeing a global team of more than 3,000 professionals.
Brown replaces Dave Seymour who will be focusing on the U.S. marketplace, after leading the global investment management practice for seven years.
Said Jeremy Anderson, global chairman of financial services at KPMG, in a statement: “Tom has made a tremendous impact to our European network and is taking on the global role at a very exciting time for the practice. I would like to thank Dave Seymour who has played an instrumental role in aligning our global investment management practice and overseeing a doubling of our investment management revenue to over US$2 billion.”
