KPMG has announced that Judd Caplain has been selected as the next global head of financial services.
Caplain succeeds his predecessor Jim Liddy who will retire after leading the global practice since 2017.
Caplain joined KPMG nearly 20 years ago and became the global head of banking and capital markets in December 2017. In addition, he has also served as the global lead partner for a leading American financial institution and has held a number of leadership roles within KPMG’s US firm, including national advisory industry leader for banking.
He said: “I am very excited to build on the success of our global practice and will to continue to position KPMG firms as the premier professional services providers in Financial Services.”
Gary Reader, global head of clients and markets, added: “Today’s business environment is incredibly challenging and being able to build cross-border teams that offer diverse perspectives while encouraging the development of outcome-focused solutions for clients is exactly what is needed.
“I am confident that Judd will build on Jim’s legacy to ensure KPMG firms remain innovative and work together to stay ahead of clients’ needs.”
