KPMG UK expands competition economics practice

KPMG UK has appointed Josh White as associate director to the firm's competition economics practice.

White will work within the KMPG competition economics practice, which was set up in January 2011 by former head of policy analysis at the UK's Competition Commission Nicola Mazzarotto, from KPMG's Canary Wharf office in London.

White was formerly a senior economist in consultant firm Analysis Groups' Montreal branch, where he specialised in applying microeconomics and econometric modelling techniques.

His primary focus revolved around the financial services and technology sectors and he holds an MA in Economics from the University of British Columbia and a BA in Socio-political Economics from Boston University.

"I am very excited to be joining KPMG's rapidly growing team of competition economists. The use of big data and demand for ever more advanced econometric techniques in competition investigations and follow-on antitrust damages cases continues to grow," White said.

"This is a great opportunity for KPMG to continue to be a market leader in these highly quantitative fields," he added.
