KPMG has appointed Hessel Verbeek as a partner within the firm’s strategy practice, with a focus on the banking sector.

Mr Verbeek was previously a principal at Deloitte, working on financial services in its strategy consulting arm, Monitor Deloitte.

He has close to 20 years’ experience in top tier consulting firms, including time with Accenture, NMG Financial Services Consulting, and L.E.K. Consulting.

Mr Verbeek’s work includes significant engagements in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe for banking and insurance clients on topics including market assessments, growth strategies, transformation, operating model development and scenario planning.

KPMG national managing partner, Margaret Cowle, said Mr Verbeek’s appointment would further enhance the firm’s financial services strategy offering.

“Hessel is an incredibly skilled and insightful leader who is passionate about the success of his clients and the impact of their agenda,” said Ms Cowle.

“The appointment of Hessel to our national team will complement our current capability and further accommodate our clients’ needs where global experiences and non-traditional solutions are increasingly in demand.”

Mr Verbeek’s appointment follows the recent appointment of Tim Thomas to leads KPMG’s specialist insurance and wealth management strategy practice.
