Linda J Ellett

Partner, UK Head of Consumer Markets, Leisure & Retail

KPMG in the UK

Linda believes in creating change through people.

With a specialist background in pension advisory to employers and shareholders, Linda leads innovative thinking on our spending/savings culture and how we reduce financial anxiety. Her future based strategic thinking has led her to working with clients on broader employee and customer strategies, encompassing leadership and cultural change.

Linda co-founded and leads our C-Suite Leadership Programme, a cross-sector cross-function programme for imminent client ExCo in the UK. Enabling agility and change in individuals and organisations, as well as the responsibility of business in society are key topics.

Linda’s main clients are in the Consumer, Leisure & Retail sectors, where she provides both specialist pensions advice as well as being Global or UK Client Lead Partner on some of KPMG’s Key Accounts in these Sectors.

In 2014 Linda was featured in the Sunday Times as part of 35-under-35 women in Management Today.

A mother of two boys, and a frequent (albeit unwilling) runner she exceeded her own beliefs with an ultra challenge of 100km in July 2016 raising money for one of her clients, Cancer Research UK.
