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

The KPMG/PwC poaching rivalry is still going strong, but weirdly, it seems like more troops are deserting PwC for a job at KPMG than the other way around. It’s like we’re living in Bizarro World.

In our latest edition of “Big 4-on-Big 4 Poaching From Around the World,” one of the newest partners at KPMG in Dubai was most recently a P. Dubstepper. The news blog UAE News 4U posted last week’s press release from KPMG:

Fady Kassatly leads the Enterprise Systems and Cloud Solutions offering within the Advisory practice at KPMG Lower Gulf. Fady specializes in driving digital transformation programs and has advised clients across diverse sectors: civil, government, telecom, and NGOs across MENA/GCC, the Americas, and Europe. He has supported C-suite executives with large-scale transformation programs spanning shared services design and implementation, enterprise systems implementation, customer strategy, engagement and CRM system implementation, organization design and restructuring. Other areas of focus include mobile government, smart government, service modernization, digital literacy, innovation strategy, and PMO institutionalization.

Prior to joining KPMG, Fady worked with other strategy consulting and Big Fours firms, leading Digital & Innovation practices, with a focus on public sector and telecommunications. Fady started his career as a software engineer with STS Systems in Canada. He holds a Master’s degree in Management from HEC in Montreal and a Bachelor’s Degree in MIS & Finance from McGill University, also in Montreal.

With his move to the House of Klynveld, Kassatly has now worked for three of the Four Horsemen of the Accounting Firm Apocalypse.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Kassatly joined Deloitte Consulting early in his career and worked there from 1999 until 2006. He also spent several years at Booz Allen Hamilton as a vice president and senior vice president, and at Booz & Co. (before PwC acquired it in 2014 and gave it a stupid name).

Kassatly eventually wound up at PwC Middle East in 2019 and was a partner until he joined KPMG Lower Gulf in October.
