James was previously at Evercore and has over 18 years of corporate finance experience.  He has advised corporates, private equity, infrastructure funds and government on a variety of debt financing transactions.

In his new role, James will lead KPMG UK’s Debt Advisory capability in energy and infrastructure, as well as providing additional senior leadership to the Debt Advisory function.

Jonathan Boyers, Head of Corporate Finance at KPMG UK, said: Businesses are facing more challenges than ever before in today’s economy, and with the challenges posed by the transition to net zero, the need for pragmatic advice on funding options and access to debt capital has never been greater. James is highly experienced in this area and has a fantastic track record of advising a diverse range of clients on these very issues. He will complement our deal advisory offering across energy and infrastructure, and we’re delighted to welcome him to our growing team.”

Reflecting on his appointment, James added:I’m thrilled to be joining KPMG at what is a pivotal time for many organisations and one of the continued strong deal activity across energy transition and infrastructure. I’m looking forward to working with our talented team to help clients secure optimal funding solutions and realise their strategic objectives.”
