Prior to joining KPMG, Chothia was Director of M&A for APAC and MENA at Constellation Software, based in Australia. Before that, he spent several years in the M&A practice of Deloitte, and worked at banks including Citi and investors including Opes Capital.

Alden Muhoni has meanwhile been hired as an Associate Director. He has more than 15 years of experience spanning various industries such as banking and financial services, manufacturing, and real estate, and specialises in offerings such as business valuations, due diligence, financial modeling, carve-outs, and post-transaction support.

Muhoni arrives at KPMG with a Big Four background, having previously worked for EY, where he focused on deals focused on Central Africa and Southern Africa, the Middle East, and Europe.

Welcoming the duo to the team, Jeyapriya Partiban, Partner and Head of Advisory at KPMG in Bahrain, said: “The appointment of Farhad and Alden underscore KPMG's commitment to delivering strategic and operational advice to clients in relation to their evolving strategy for growth and diversification within the marketplace, as well as financial transactions.”

According to recent research from Bain & Company, the Middle East’s deal market is expected to grow this year, massively buoyed by sovereign funds which traditionally account for more than 8 out of 10 deals in the region.
