KPMG has announced the appointment of David Campbell as partner within its Enterprise practice.
Campbell joins KPMG Enterprise from BDO where he was an audit partner and national head of leisure. In addition to managing a large team, he also led a portfolio of clients, specialising in restaurants and other consumer markets.
Ben McDonald, UK Head of KPMG Enterprise, said: “David has an impressive background working with mid-market businesses in a range of sectors. He will be a brilliant addition to our growing team of Enterprise specialists. He has worked with some of the best known and most successful brands in the business.”
Campbell will build on KPMG’s existing presence in the leisure and hospitality sector and will use his significant experience to work with privately owned and PE-backed businesses. He said: “There are number of issues affecting the leisure sector right now, in particular how Brexit could impact consumer spending, cost inflation and the supply of workers to hotels, bars and restaurants. I have been impressed with how KPMG as a firm is working with its clients around the Brexit issue.”
David Campbell’s appointment with KPMG Enterprise comes on the back of six new partner hires in the last 18 months and a number of other investments as the firm looks to increase its market share with privately owned and PE backed mid-market companies.
Campbell, concluded: “I am looking forward to bringing the full range of KPMG’s services to many more exciting businesses to help them achieve their growth ambitions. I am really excited about the prospect of joining KPMG Enterprise, which is a dynamic and ambitious part of the firm.”
