NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KPMG today announced that Judd Caplain has been selected as the next Global Head of Financial Services, effective 1 April. He succeeds Jim Liddy who will retire after leading the global practice since 2017.
Judd joined KPMG nearly 20 years ago and became the Global Head of Banking & Capital Markets in December 2017. In addition, Judd has also served as the Global Lead Partner for a leading American financial institution and has held a number of leadership roles within KPMG's US firm, including National Advisory Industry leader for Banking.
KPMG has a strong heritage in the Financial Services sector built through an enduring focus on client service, global collaboration and a strong program of talent recruitment and retention. Judd will continue to strengthen this foundation with an ongoing commitment to support financial institutions as they look to the future and seize the opportunities being presented through digitization, data-driven technologies and globalization.
“I want to thank Jim for his leadership and outstanding contributions to our organization during a successful and long-standing career,” said Gary Reader, Global Head of Clients and Markets.
“Today's business environment is incredibly challenging and being able to build cross-border teams that offer diverse perspectives while encouraging the development of outcome-focused solutions for clients is exactly what is needed. I am confident that Judd will build on Jim's legacy to ensure KPMG firms remain innovative and work together to stay ahead of clients' needs.”
