Marlon Richardson joins from EY, where he served as a partner in the firm’s oil and gas practice for seven years, including as its oil and gas advisory sector leader since 2018.
At KPMG he will be part of the Energy and Natural Resources Leadership Team and will work to drive growth across the firm’s oil and gas portfolio. He will use his skills and experience in supporting both UK and international operators as they diversify their portfolios towards lower-carbon energy.
Richardson said: “KPMG has consistently proven itself to be a global market leader in serving energy clients. In a year when energy transition has truly come to the fore, and with minds focused on the UK hosting COP26 in November, there has never been a better time to be providing the support and advice to businesses looking to evolve their models to capitalise on new opportunities. We will continue to use KPMG’s reach to help global operators invest in the UK, building a cleaner and more efficient oil and gas sector, which will be crucial to meeting Britain’s ambitious net-zero targets.”
Simon Virley, vice chair and head of energy and natural resources at KPMG UK, added: “Marlon’s oil and gas experience will further strengthen our rapidly-growing energy team. Many of our oil and gas clients are transforming their business models in light of the energy transition and Marlon will play a key role in helping clients make that shift.”
The appointment comes after KPMG in May recruited Ian Wood and Hugh Sanderson from EY and First Energy Capital respectively to join its Energy Lead Advisory team, which supports clients in energy transition through strategy and M&A advice.
