Ian West has been appointed KPMG UK’s head of technology, media and telecommunications (TMT), alongside David Elms as TMT chair.
West succeeds Alex Holt, who is moving to the US to continue his role as KPMG’s global head of media and telco.
With more than 20 years’ experience in client relationship management, West has become one of the professional service company’s leading partners supporting TMT businesses.
Elms’ TMT experience spans 30 years, specialising in advising clients on strategy and corporate finance transactions.
West said: “Uncertainty might be the new normal in the economy, but for businesses in telecommunications, media and technology, disruption is part of their DNA and has been unsettling their world for decades.
“I’m excited to lead our UK practice and support those organisations through the persistent challenges they encounter and make the most of the opportunities that rapid innovation and change present.”
