KPMG has announced the appointment of Tim Knight as managing director of KPMG Nunwood, its customer experience management business.

Tim joined Nunwood in 2002 and was appointed chief commercial officer in 2011. He was one of four founding partners who oversaw the successful transformation of the business from a full service insight consultancy to a specialist in customer experience and technology, which was acquired by KPMG in 2015.

In his new role, Tim will be responsible for people, client experience, strategy, growth and innovation. Key areas of focus for the next year will include:

  • Expanding the KPMG Nunwood Customer Experience Excellence Centre, which conducts research on over 920 brands worldwide to identify customer best practice. Its work was recently recognised by industry leading trade body, the Management Consulting Association, who awarded KPMG Nunwood the title of ‘Best Thought Leadership’.
  • The development of KPMG Nunwood’s Fizz technology, with support from KPMG’s technology practice. Fizz collates customer feedback with operational and digital analytics, then manages action, allowing businesses to quickly act and resolve customer issues and share best practice with colleagues.

Tim Knight, managing director of KPMG Nunwood, commented:

“We joined KPMG a year ago, to help clients use research, technology and customer journey design to build better, fairer, faster growth businesses. Over this time we’ve maintained Nunwood’s singular focus on customer experience, whilst linking it to the wider firm’s consulting, digital and business transformation capabilities.

“As a result, we have grown: most significantly by building deeper relationships with existing clients. We have radically upgraded our Fizz: Voice of the Customer software platform, drawing on support from KPMG’s global technology practice. Looking ahead, there are significant, exciting opportunities to evolve our client services whilst creating impactful, highly rewarding careers for our colleagues.”

Nigel Slater, head of management consulting at KPMG, said: 

“Tim will play a crucial role to grow our customer experience expertise and help our clients improve the service they offer to their customers.

“Technology can play a crucial role to improve the consistency of customer experience and enable businesses to listen and respond to feedback, quickly resolving issues that arise. Tim will integrate KPMG Nunwood’s work into our wider management consulting practice, linking with the customer technology we provide, from digital and mobile analytics to CRM.”
