KPMG’s UK entity has announced the appointment of a new leader for its technology, media and telecom wing. Joe Cassidy is promoted to the role after spending a decade with the Big Four firm.

Commenting on the news, Mark Gibson, who is the global TMT sector lead for KPMG, said, “The Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) sector has experienced significant disruption, and Joe brings a wealth of knowledge to our UK TMT practice to help clients through their most difficult challenges. KPMG has led some of the largest TMT organisations through major transformations globally, and I am delighted that Joe will take the helm in the UK and grow our reputation as their indispensable partner.”

The shift towards online content consumption has altered the business model for many companies. Even purely digital companies must keep up with rapidly evolving customer expectations. Technological disruption and increased competition are also forcing TMT to regularly finetune their strategies. KPMG’s TMT wing helps clients to do just that.

Joe Cassidy appointed KPMG UK’s head of TMT

Cassidy has been working with KPMG since 2015. Most recently he held the positions of head of corporate strategy and head of financial services strategy. In these roles he has led transformation and change at some of KPMG’s largest FTSE, global, and startup clients across the financial sector. He will retain these roles in addition to his new appointment.

Speaking on his expanding remit, Cassidy added, “The pace of change in the TMT sector is unparalleled, and we continue to see huge growth potential with the introduction of disruptive technologies. I am looking forward to stepping into this role to support our clients and guide them through this evolutionary period.”

Looking ahead, he will work closely with UK and global TMT leadership and sector communities to drive cross-sector and cross-capability collaboration. He steps into the shoes of Ian West, who has led the firm’s activity in the sector for the past five years.
