KPMG bolsters Transaction Advisory Services team

Holley has re-joined the firm and his new role will focus on supporting clients across their investment lifecycle – from fundraising, to due diligence and ownership, through to exit

KPMG UK has announced the appointment of James Holley as a partner within its Deal Advisory practice. In his new role, Holley will be responsible for leading KPMG’s ESG Transaction Advisory Services team and ESG Private Equity offering.

Holley has re-joined the firm after spending five years with Bridgepoint, the international quoted private equity and alternative asset management group, where he was head of Environment, Social and Governance (ESG).

In this new role at KPMG, Holley will focus on supporting clients across their investment lifecycle – from fundraising, to due diligence and ownership, through to exit.

Prior to working at Bridgepoint, he was KPMG UK’s head of Responsible Investment, and he brings over 20 years of ESG and Sustainability experience to his new role, both in an advisory and practitioner context.

Additionally, Holley has also previously held roles at Deloitte and ERM.

Nicola Longfield, partner and head of Transaction Advisory Services at KPMG UK, said: “James’ extensive experience, network and expertise will be a great asset to our clients and our firm, and we’re delighted to welcome him back to KPMG.

“James is a great senior addition to our growing team. As our clients look to embed ESG in their investment decisions, I’m confident that we’re well placed to help them to achieve their ambitions.”

Holley added: “I’m delighted to be returning to KPMG to lead our ESG Transaction Services team and to support the firm with expanding its ESG offering to Private Equity clients as we build out our capabilities and expertise.

“ESG is not only influencing business strategies and investment decisions, but it is also becoming increasingly integral to unlocking business and societal value, and I’m looking forward to utilising my practical experiences to help our clients navigate this rapidly evolving agenda.”
