KPMG is delighted to announce the appointment of David Curley as a senior advisor in the firm’s Government and Infrastructure practice.

David joined KPMG on 16 November from the Shareholder Executive, which is part of the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills. Within the Shareholder Executive David was a senior civil servant, leading on a number of corporate finance programmes and shareholder and stakeholder relationships with companies and government departments.

In his new role, David will be leading on corporate finance advice to the Shareholder Executive and Her Majesty’s Government (HMG). He will be responsible for developing KPMG’s capabilities around HMG’s asset disposals, realisations and related corporate finance situations.

David has over 20 years corporate finance and advisory experience, including with privatisations in the UK and overseas. Before he joined the civil service he held a number of private sector roles, including being a senior corporate financier with UBS Investment Bank. In this role he led on a significant number of M&A and equity transactions primarily in the media and telecoms sectors.

Commenting on David’s appointment, Kru Desai, Head of Government & Infrastructure at KPMG LLP UK says: “David is a well-respected figure within the Civil Service, and I am delighted that he has chosen to join our Government practice at KPMG.  Citizens, government, investors and business are searching for better value, transparency and trust in how public services are designed, regulated and delivered. The combination of David’s experience from the Shareholder Executive, and the capabilities of KPMG, will enable us to work with our clients to help them navigate through this challenging fiscal environment.

On joining KPMG, David says: “I am delighted to be joining KPMG’s Government and Infrastructure practice. I am looking forward to developing the practice’s capabilities in providing corporate finance advice to Her Majesty’s Government and working with stakeholders and counterparts in the coming years.”
