EY Poaches Someone From KPMG and (Not Yet) Issues a Press Release, Part II

In the About section of his LinkedIn profile, Charlie Simpson simply put down, “Delighted to have joined EY Parthenon to help grow our Advanced Mobility and Manufacturing business across Europe and globally.”

It’s Simpson’s move to EY-P, the strategic consultancy located in the boiler room of the EY Global Battleship, that is the focus of today’s edition of “Big 4-on-Big 4 Poaching From Around the World.”

The guy wearing the black spectacles joined EY-P earlier this month as a partner, bringing to the firm more than 20 years of consulting experience.

He had spent the past six years at KPMG in the U.K. And now that he’s left KPMG, Simpson looks about 20 years younger.

EY-P’s press brigade didn’t write up anything special about Simpson’s arrival, but the website Consultancy.uk did:

Having joined EY-Parthenon’s London office at the start of July, Simpson will now use his extensive experience in strategy and transport consulting to help grow the company’s advanced mobility and manufacturing business across Europe, as well as on a global basis. He arrives from KPMG, where he spent the last six years of his career. During his spell with the Big Four firm, Simpson was a Partner and Head of KPMG’s Mobility2030 team. The thought leadership project looks at how the shifting mobility landscape could evolve over time and the effect that may have on our day to day lives.

Prior to joining KPMG, Simpson spent almost 15 years with PA Consulting Group. At the British origin consultancy, he latterly headed up the firm’s market and customer strategy team. During his tenure in that role, he also worked on secondment with Royal Mail – providing commercial strategy for its B2C web-channel – and Virgin Atlantic Airways, where he advised on a customer strategy programme.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Simpson cut his accounting teeth in the early ’90s at Price Waterhouse (sans Coopers).
