Imperial Tobacco said today that Oliver Tant, formerly vice chairman of KPMG and chairman of KPMG’s Client Council, would succeed Bob Dyrbus as finance director.
Tant will be appointed to the board on Oct. 1 and will be appointed finance director on Nov. 5, when Dyrbus will step down from the board ahead of retiring from the business on Dec. 31.
Tant has held a number of senior positions at KPMG during a career that has included being global managing director of the Private Equity Division and head of UK Audit. He was also a member of the U.K. board of KPMG.
