Matt Whipp and Komal Dhall join KPMG’s UK Transfer Pricing Team – Neighbour and McDougall get promotions
KPMG has appointed Matt Whipp, formerly Head of Business Risk and Transfer Pricing at Diageo plc, as a Director in its UK Transfer Pricing practice.
Matt joins with 12 years industry experience, having originally trained with another “Big 4” firm. In his role at Diageo, Matt was responsible for leading the business risk and transfer pricing for the group including establishing and managing its global transfer pricing policy, processes and documentation. Additionally he managed a number of transfer pricing audits across the globe including here in the UK.
KPMG’s UK Transfer Pricing team also welcomes Komal Dhall, a partner from KPMG’s US Transfer Pricing practice, who recently joined the team on a two year secondment. Komal has considerable experience in a whole range of Transfer Pricing issues affecting large corporates. One of her main roles will be to strengthen the links between KPMG’s London and the New York practices.
John Neighbour, who has led the UK Transfer Pricing team since 2007, has been appointed deputy leader of KPMG’s global GTPS practice. Taking advantage of the unique reputation he has in the global market (having previously held senior positions at the OECD and HMRC) John will work with the rest of the Global Transfer Pricing Services leadership to build KPMG’s Transfer Pricing services internationally.
With John Neighbour’s move to this global role, Stuart McDougall, who joined KPMG in the UK from Procter and Gamble in 2006, has taken over leadership of KPMG’s Transfer Pricing practice in the UK. Stuart brings his experience in industry and from leading the regional KPMG Transfer Pricing team to the challenge of growing this fast moving area.
Stuart McDougall, head of transfer pricing at KPMG in the UK, said: “I am delighted to be taking on the leadership role at the UK transfer pricing practice and to welcome Matt and Komal to our team. As businesses become ever more multi-national and complex, transfer pricing is becoming increasingly important and there is growing demand for advice in this area. We have enjoyed solid growth under John Neighbour’s stewardship and I look forward to working with colleagues to continue that success.”
