Quest supremo joins KPMG Forensic

Nigel Layton, the former boss of forensic heavyweight Quest has joined KPMG as a director in its corporate intelligence unit

KPMG Forensic has parachuted in Nigel Layton, founder of the specialist
corporate investigations company Quest, as a director in its Corporate
Intelligence team.

Quest, set up by Layton in 1995 is probably best known for its work into the
football bungs inquiry for the Premier League which centred on allegations of
irregular payments surrounding certain football transfers.

Quest also conducted a separate Football Transfers Audit for the Football
Association.

Layton spent eleven years at PriceWaterhouse where he worked in both the
audit and corporate recovery functions and was a central figure in the
investigations into the affairs of the late Robert Maxwell.

Steven Haynes, KPMG Forensic’s Head of Corporate Intelligence for Europe,
Middle east and Africa, said: “We are delighted that someone with Nigel’s
distinguished track record is joining our team.”

“Corporate intelligence work is in high demand from clients given the
prevailing climate where prospective deals and business partnerships, at home
and abroad, need to be more carefully researched in advance than ever before.”

Nigel Layton added: “I am delighted to be joining one of the leading forensic
groups in the world. I look forward to working with KPMG’s corporate
intelligence and other forensic colleagues to help grow the practice even
further.”
