AT Kearney appoints Global Head of Financial Services

RELATED TOPICS​

Management consulting firm AT Kearney has appointed Simon Kent as Global Head of Financial Services. 

Kent joined AT Kearney as a Partner in its London headquarters in 2013 from Navigant, where he served as Head of Financial Services. With over 25 years’ experience of advising financial services clients, Kent will be tasked with growing AT Kearney’s footprint in the financial services sector globally and leading the firm’s investment into the sector.
 
AT Kearney has a strong track record of advising financial services brands, with a focus on the banking, insurance and payments markets, working on projects that underpin the CEO agenda and that typically involve strategic operational and digital transformation.
 
Simon Kent, Global Head of Financial Services at AT Kearney, says: “Financial services companies are a vital element of the economy and a force for good when they get it right. It’s no secret that the industry has faced well-documented challenges over the past decade. It has taken – and continues to take – major strides to transform itself. At its best, financial services can serve as a powerful force for good in the economy, and clients are focussed on that purpose as well as delivering shareholder and customer value.”
 
“Alongside that, factors like increasing disruption, open banking, rising customer expectations, new challenger firms and new regulation are all continuing to reshape the sector, driving demand for expert advice. AT Kearney’s global financial services team works with brands around the world to transform their operations for competitive advantage and create long–term success, and I’m looking forward to the challenge of delivering growth for the firm in these areas.”
