Interpath Advisory has announced it has appointed financial modelling and data analytics expert Simon Livings to lead its new Digital Centre of Excellence.
During his career, Simon has built a wealth of experience working on M&A, refinancing and restructuring deals, Enterprise Performance Management, planning and forecasting modelling, as well as advanced and predictive analytics.
He previously spent eight years at KPMG where he built and led the firm’s Data & Analytics practice within its National Markets business, and before that spent over 12 years at EY as a director in its business modelling team.
In his new role at Interpath, Simon will build and lead the firm’s new Digital Centre of Excellence, which will work to enhance the firm’s existing suite of advisory services, including end-to-end profitability, working capital management, cash flow forecasting, due diligence and financial modelling, through the leveraging of advanced data and predictive analytics. He will also support the training and development of Interpath’s 550-strong team, as well as working with Interpath’s internal technology specialists, to help further broaden analytical skills across the business.
Mark Raddan, head of Advisory for Interpath, commented: “The creation of a Digital Centre of Excellence adds further firepower to our existing advisory capabilities. For our people, Simon’s knowledge and expertise will undoubtedly help to broaden and sharpen their own data processing skills, while for our clients, it’s about harnessing the power of data and predictive analytics to make better-informed decisions about their performance, ultimately so they can protect and enhance value.”
Simon Livings said: “Over the years, I have always been struck by how analytically-minded and innovative the team at Interpath has been, and so I’m delighted to come on board to help develop and strengthen the firm’s core services by leveraging technology and analytics to their fullest potential. Throughout my career, my passion has always been working at the coalface alongside clients, helping them to resolve any issues they have and create better business outcomes.”
