KPMG to unveil next UK chair

The audit and consulting group KPMG is due to announce its next UK chairman today. The race to succeed John Griffiths-Jones as leader of the firm’s UK operations has been whittled down to the last three: global head of transactions and restructuring Simon Collins, Alan Buckle, who has been supervising various European and global activities, and head of audit Oliver Tant. The decision is made by KPMG’s near-600 partners in the UK.
