Former CEO of KPMG Sweden to Join Alvarez & Marsal


Helene Willberg, former CEO of KPMG Sweden, was named a managing director to co-lead Alvarez & Marsal’s Nordic operation, further strengthening the firm’s capabilities in the region.

Willberg and Christer Wiberg, an A&M Stockholm-based managing director, will serve as co-leaders of A&M’s Nordic practice.

Recognized as a leading transaction advisory professional, Willberg advises clients on complex initial public offering and merger and acquisition situations, counsels multinational corporations on corporate governance and value creation issues and works with private equity firms on transaction due diligence.

Antonio Alvarez III, managing director and A&M’s European Practice leader, said, “As we’ve seen in the UK and Europe, and increasingly the Nordics, A&M’s platform provides an independent and attractive alternative to both companies and professionals. Our European practices have grown more than 30 percent over the past two years. Helene’s appointment solidifies A&M’s position to add value to clients seeking non-audit services and the provision of conflict-free solutions.”
