The Team


KPMG's Integration Advisory Team works with both acquirers and vendors on pre- and post-deal Integration and Separation issues related to M&A or similar transactions. There are five key proposition areas:

- Synergy evaluation – understanding the potential benefits and costs of a transaction.
- Pre-completion planning – developing high level plans for the first 100 days by workstream, setting up programme governance and developing Day 1 plans to take control.
- First 100 days and long term implementation – fully mobilised integration team with a prioritised set of opportunities and realisation of quick wins.
- Second wave integration – a refocused, re-energised integration process to capture the originally envisaged benefits of the deal.
- Demerger and Separation – understanding the separation options and giving assistance to deliver a credible, discrete standalone entity on Day 1 with value preserved and business continuity ensured.

We work closely alongside our colleagues within KPMG's Transaction Services who conduct financial, commercial and operational due diligence, providing an integrated and value-adding service to our clients to help make their transactions successful.

We work regularly on 'front page headline' deals for a client base comprising a wide range of publicly listed corporates, private companies, private equity houses and public sector organisations.

- Challenging our people to be curious and innovative on all engagements and internal work, to ensure outcomes are commercially focussed, value adding and effectively executed

- Project manage a workstream or number of workstreams on a major deal or have overall responsibility for a medium scale engagement, covering deal strategy and synergy reviews; pre deal integration and separation and Day One Planning; to post deal integration and separation planning and implementation
- Supporting client pitches, proposals and internal/ external marketing initiatives
- Being seen as a role model, ensuring our core values are maintained, and coaching, mentoring and supporting our people to help them reach their full potential
- Ensure KPMG engagement quality and risk management procedures are consistently applied on each engagement to protect the interests of our clients as well as KPMG
- You will need to be willing to travel as we mainly work from client sites and have a global portfolio of clients. The length of a project can be anywhere from one week to one year, although a typical project will last a few weeks and we would aim to give you as diverse an experience as possible.
