Baker Tilly has appointed a new leader for its Advisory division in Bahrain: Anshul Deobhakta.

The seasoned consultant joins Baker Tilly in Bahrain as a partner, head of Advisory and as a member of the firm’s leadership team. Across the Middle East, Baker Tilly has 30+ offices in major business hubs.

“I am very excited to join Baker Tilly – a tier 1 global professional services and consulting firm. I will look forward to enhancing the advisory practice, introduce new product services in the market and offer clients a holistic experience,” said Deobhakta on his new challenge.

Deobhakta’s experience spans 20+ years of experience in consulting, investment banking and private equity. He most recently served KPMG for over eleven years, latterly as a senior director head of the Deal Advisory practice in Bahrain.

During his decade-plus at the Big Four firm, Deobhakta focused on transactions work – he successfully originated, structured, negotiated, and closed transactions in healthcare, technology, telecom, financial services, industrials, education, consumer retail, real estate, and social infrastructure sectors, among others.

Transactions he has undertaken include mergers, acquisitions, restructuring, debt refinancing, fund raising, and capital markets deals across the Levant region, North America, Asia and India. His key clients include sovereign wealth funds, private equity houses, financial institutions, and family-owned business enterprises.

“After 11+ wonderful years at KPMG, I proudly can now call the firm my second home. Special thanks to my Deal Advisory team (present and the former colleagues) with whom I will always share a special bond, who are nothing, but an extension of my family,” stated Deobhakta in a LinkedIn post announcing his departure.

Prior to his time at KPMG, Deobhakta was an investment banker at Bank of America and Tata Capital, and investor at Global Banking Corporation (a subsidiary of Gulf Finance House).

Now at Baker Tilly, Deobhakta looks forward to support the firm’s clients at a time of unprecedented change. “The region is undergoing a massive transformation currently, primarily change in consumer behaviour, technology adoption, digital transformation, M&A consolidation, governments divesting and privatising national assets, and a major infrastructure replacement agenda.”

“Navigating these and other developments requires a dedicated team of senior advisory professionals and at Baker Tilly, we have the relevant people, experience, and credentials to offer our clients a ‘one stop shop’ experience.”
