Svilena Tzekova

Global Head of Corporate Services, KPMG International and Partner

KPMG in the UK

Svilena leads KPMG Corporate Services which brings together teams of technologists and functional experts to help organizations redefine the operations of their back-office functions. Corporate Services teams advise organizations on how they can create superior experiences for their employees, customers, suppliers and broader stakeholders, bringing back-office functions together and connecting them to the middle and front office.

KPMG Corporate Services professionals frequently utilize cloud ERP and emerging technologies. In Svilena’s words: “…for every technology implementation, there needs to be a corresponding program that addresses the evolving skills and capabilities of the people associated with these Corporate Services.”

Svilena joined KPMG in the UK in 2006 and has amassed consulting experience across a range of sectors - consumer goods, retail, oil & gas and telecommunications. She has led and successfully delivered advisory projects on design and implementation of a variety of operating models for the Corporate Services functions, creating new capabilities and using data & analytics to drive insights.

Originally from Bulgaria, Svilena spent 20+ years living in the UK and working across Europe, Asia and the US. A chartered accountant with a business degree, she also holds a MSc in Coaching and Behavioral change – a combination that helps her drive transformational change when engaging with clients and KPMG professionals across the globe.
