KPMG Poaches Someone From PwC and Issues a Press Release, Part VII

It seems like more Big 4ers are trading in their PwC autumnal hues for KPMG blue lately than the other way around.

That was the case in our latest edition of “Big 4-on-Big 4 Poaching From Around the World,” as the Queen’s KPMG officially unveiled three new private equity partners, one of whom was snatched away from PwC. Private Equity Wire has the press release announcing the three newest Klynveld rainmakers, which includes Neil Coomber:

Neil Coomber joins KPMG from PwC where he was a partner in the transaction services team, working for a range of blue-chip corporate and private equity clients. During his career, he has led a significant number of high-profile, complex and multi-national transactions, including a number of years spent working in New York.

Coomber, who joined the blue and white in July, actually spent three years in PwC’s office in NYC (2000 to 2003) on secondment from the U.K., according to his bio on KPMG U.K.’s website. He spent nearly 25 years with P. Dubs in the U.K., according to his LinkedIn profile, and his writing can be seen on such websites as The Grocer.
