Now based in Riyadh, Ladnev will help KPMG expand its presence in the deals landscape, primarily focussing on due diligence work in the oil & gas, power & utilities, and mining sectors.

“Oleg will strengthen our team in the Kingdom and greatly improve our capability to advise key clients particularly in the energy and power & utilities sectors,” stated Sharukh Dumasia, Head of Deals at KPMG in Saudi Arabia.
