KPMG in India has been announced key strategic changes within its senior leadership team. These movements within the core leadership team are in sync with KPMG’s long term aggressive growth plans to adapt to ever changing market dynamics.

KPMG in India announces the appointment of Ambarish Dasgupta, the new head of management consulting effective. With around 25 years of rich experience in business consulting, IT consulting and implementation and outsourcing, Ambarish has been managing large strategy, process, people and IT enabled reengineering and business transformation projects. Earlier with PricewaterhouseCoopers Private Limited (PwC), he has spent 15-year as the consulting leader of PwC India and was also the member of the India Leadership Team.

Richard Rekhy, Chief Executive Officer, KPMG in India said, “I am delighted to welcome Ambarish into this new role at KPMG India. Given our increased focus on the consulting business, I am confident that Ambarish’s able and proven leadership will help steer Management Consulting practice to achieve its true potential.”

Given the strategic importance of people in the business, the Firm has taken fresh look at managing human resource from a strategic perspective and hence roped in an experienced business line partner to oversee matters of people, performance and culture. In her new role, Shalini Pillay would head the human resources function for KPMG in India. 

Having been with the firm for over nine years now, Shalini will be instrumental in charting the road map for KPMG’s People Agenda in India. She will manage all the aspects of the HR function, encompassing manpower planning, organisation design and development, talent management, learning and development, performance management, rewards and recognition and employee relations.

KPMG India had also recently announced Vikram Hosangady, as the Head of Private Equity. Vikram will also continue to head the transaction services practice, where he holds the merit of working on over 150 transactions both in India and overseas.
