KPMG Enterprise announces Midlands ambassadors

KPMG Enterprise has announced the appointment of five Midlands business figures to newly-created ambassador roles.


Three of the new ambassadors are KPMG alumni: Richard Boot is an ex-management consulting and corporate finance partner at KPMG in Birmingham, and ex-chair of KPMG’s Centre for Manufacturing Consultancy. Boot has since been chair, NED and advisor for a number of businesses, including Coutts. He is currently chair of a group of recruitment related businesses. Neil Morris was a tax partner at KPMG as well as the ex-head of the firm’s Leicester office. Morris is currently chair of a manufacturing business, and among previous positions has been chair at Coutts, on the board at the Leicester Regeneration Company and a director at the Belgrade Theatre trust. Jonathan Kidson is a former KPMG audit partner who set up the Midlands pensions audit practice, and chaired the KPMG Midlands real estate practice. Among other interests, Kidson is Trustee of the Ironbridge Gorge Museums and chair of the Shropshire ME Support charity. Outside of alumni, former banker Trevor Foster has also been appointed ambassador. Foster currently has a small portfolio of local business interests, including Economy Energy Trading and Centric Property, and is former chair of both Lockton and the UBS Wealth regional advisory panel. Finally and also from the banking world is Mark Bolshaw, who spent 30 years at Lloyds. For the final ten years, Bolshaw headed the bank’s leveraged teams outside London, where they became market leading businesses. He is now an independent consultant. Stephen Craik, head of enterprise in the Midlands, said: “All of our ambassadors are highly experienced individuals who can add insight, knowledge and a vital critical eye. They are incredibly well networked into the privately owned business market across the Midlands and can provide the team with understanding and relevance, as well as the means to develop relationships and business opportunities.
