Mark Maitland has been named as the leader of Simon-Kucher & Partners’ new UK transaction services unit. He joins having spent more than a decade with PwC. 

At the start of 2022, to help better support these clients, Simon-Kucher & Partners launched a European Transaction Services team. As the consultancy looks to expand this service further, it has also launched a dedicated transaction services team in the UK, which will focus on carrying out commercial due diligence on transactions for private equity and corporate clients.

Mark Maitland has been appointed to lead the charge, bringing a wealth of cross-industry experience and a robust reputation as a trusted advisor on deals to the firm. A strategy consultant with over 17 years of deals experience, he spent most of his earlier career with Big Four firm PwC. Latterly, he held the role of Head of Media and Entertainment for PwC’s UK wing, before exiting earlier in 2022.

The incoming Head of Simon-Kucher’s Transaction Services team in the UK, said, “I am very excited to join Simon-Kucher to drive the launch of and lead their deals business in London. I have always had enormous respect for the firm, and look forward to working with Simon-Kucher’s partners in London and globally to quickly establish the firm as a respected provider of commercial due diligence.”

In his new role, he will lead the UK team, while working closely with Simon-Kucher’s European transaction services team. He will further be partnering with other non-deal focused Simon-Kucher executives and their teams, driving synergies between revenue growth and pricing strategy work at the firm.
