KPMG International has named Mark Britnell as global head of healthcare.
Britnell is in charge of KPMG’s global healthcare strategy, which involves establishing regional centres of excellence across the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe.
Britnell has more than 20 years of leadership experience in the international healthcare sector and has served on the management board of the UK’s National Health Scheme. He was previously the director general for commissioning and system management in the UK Department of Health and has lead KPMG’s healthcare practice in the UK and Europe since 2009.
“Our new global strategy reflects the fact that healthcare systems around the world are facing similar challenges – offering better quality of services at lower costs,” Britnell said.
“We are convinced that healthcare systems around the world can rise to the challenge by sharing new and innovative approaches.”
KPMG plans to appoint 15 partners to its global healthcare team over the next year.
