EY Poaches Someone From KPMG and Issues a Press Release, Parts IV, V, and VI

EY-Parthenon recently lured three people away from the Queen’s KPMG, two of whom were added to the partnership and one hired as a director.

Akif Jawaid joined EY-Parthenon in the UK as a partner on EY-P’s private equity team. He previously was a partner and global head of private equity (Strategy Group) and the UK head of deal value creation at KPMG, where he worked for three years. Before joining the House of Klynveld, Jawaid held senior roles at Boston Consulting Group and McKinsey & Co. [Consultancy.uk/LinkedIn]

Another ex-KPMGer joined EY-Parthenon in the UK at the end of last year. Olga Bandini, who has more than 16 years of management consulting and deal advisory experience in the energy sector, joined EY-P as a director on its transaction strategy and execution team. Bandini said she will work closely with clients to deliver deal value and help them navigate the challenges and opportunities presented by energy transition. Before joining EY, she spent 11 years at KPMG UK, first as a manager, then as an associate director, and finally as a director in integration and separation advisory, transaction services for the past four years. Prior to EY, Bandini worked at Deloitte for four years as a senior consultant and as a manager. [EY/LinkedIn]

KPMG UK got raided again by EY-Parthenon a few months ago, this time luring away Anu Bhambi and adding him to the partnership. As an energy sector partner, Bhambi will support clients in their transition toward sustainable and green energy. After working for Shell, Cargill, and Boston Consulting Group, Bhambi joined KPMG in March 2019 as a partner and was a Klynveldian for two years. [EY/LinkedIn]
