Alison White

Universities Partnerships Manager

KPMG in the UK

Alison sits in the University Partnerships Office at KPMG, managing the relationship with the University of Leeds. KPMG’s University Partnerships Office was launched in 2021 to drive insights for clients and support the regional economic growth agenda.

Our partnership with the University of Leeds is all about innovation and entrepreneurship. As a key part of the partnership, Alison is also closely aligned to the Emerging Giants efforts in Yorkshire and the North East – supporting early stage and innovation-led businesses with their growth journeys including those which spin-out of, or in to, universities.

Alison provides guidance to entrepreneurs and connects them into the wealth of experience we have at KPMG. Prior to this, Alison was in business development roles in the FMCG sector.
