In March last year he was appointed head of KPMG’s restructuring practice in the UK, a role which he will continue to hold alongside his new global post.
Leif Zierz, global head of deal advisory at KPMG, said: In assuming this global role, Blair brings with him deep insolvency experience, having also recently worked on complex engagements including First Oil Expro, Tullis Russell and Scottish Coal.”
Mr Nimmo said: “I am delighted to be taking on this new global role. Across the world, our insolvency team continues to go from strength to strength, so the opportunity to help shape the direction of our global practice is a real privilege.”
