With more than 18 years of industry experience, Suglia has served an extensive roster of both traditional and alternative investment organizations, and also has been involved in the strategic planning for the firm’s Investment Management and overall Financial Services sectors.
Investment Management is one of KPMG’s largest sectors and a core part of the Financial Services line of business.
“Jim’s knowledge, experience, client relationships and leadership will be crucial in positioning the Investment Management sector for future growth and to continue strengthening our market presence,” said Scott Marcello, national leader for Financial Services.
Most recently, Suglia was U.S. Advisory leader for Investment Management. While in this position, the revenues of the U.S. Investment Management Advisory practice doubled and its portfolio of Advisory capabilities expanded. Suglia also is a member of the firm’s Global Investment Management Executive Leadership team.
“I am honored to have this opportunity to lead a great practice with great people who are dedicated to excellence and continually enhancing our value to our clients,” said Suglia.
Suglia takes over from Dave Seymour, who after more than 13 years serving as national sector leader, is taking on a new role as a U.S. senior industry partner in the Investment Management sector to actively engage with clients and the broader marketplace.
Suglia received a Bachelor of Science degree from New Hampshire College, where he majored in economics and finance and minored in accounting. He joined the firm in 2000 and was admitted as a principal in 2004.
