Amy Marshall has joined KPMG as a director in the firm’s power and utilities practice.
Marshall joined from Engage Consulting where she was a director of business development, working with Engage’s experts to advise clients in energy and utilities.
Marshall’s remit at KPMG includes business development in new and emerging sub-sectors of the power and utilities sector, including smart meters and smart grid. Energy storage will also be in her remit.
Storage, and the emerging trend toward smaller scale storage, such as community energy, among other emerging business models, are seen as a key component and enabler of the smart grid.
Before Engage, Marshall was director of smart utilities at Cable and Wireless, with responsibility for global smart grid and smart metering markets.
Separately, KPMG has appointed Dimitrios Petropoulos as a principal adviser in the firm’s cyber security team.
Dimitrios has over 20 years of cyber security experience and has worked with financial institutions, telecom organizations, energy and government agencies in the EMEA. The cyber threats that are emerging as the smart energy sector develops make his experience relevant for KPMG and its clients, says the firm.
