KPMG has bolstered its technology, media and telecoms team with the appointment of Adam Joy as Partner.
Adam joins KPMG from Warner Bros., where he expanded the company's global television production business, acquiring operations in 16 countries worldwide.
Prior to his role at Warner Bros., Adam worked at Numis Securities and headed up the firm's corporate finance media team. He has also worked at UBS, where he was head of EMEA Media Investment Banking.
In his new role Adam will lead KPMG’s corporate finance team for the technology, media and telecoms sectors.
David Elms, Head of Media at KPMG, said: “The boundaries between the media and tech sectors continue to blur, as media companies acquire the talent and skills they need to provide new digital services to consumers. They are also investing heavily in their data and analytics capability, to try to better identify and understand rapidly changing consumer behaviour.
“These trends will drive significant consolidation over the next 18 months. Adam’s extensive industry experience and network of contacts will play a crucial role in helping our clients to drive their acquisition and sales strategies to adapt and build their business.”
