As leader of the firm’s technology practice, Pathak will oversee a large team that is helping a wide range of organizations drive digital transformations in a challenging business environment.

"As the pandemic forces companies to pivot quickly, it's more important than ever for decision makers to understand the role technology plays in keeping their organizations connected to customers, suppliers, and their employees," says Stephanie Terrill, business unit leader of the management consulting practice, KPMG Canada. "Leaders need to take the necessary steps now to ensure they emerge from this crisis strong and resilient and can transition their organization to new ways of working, especially amid today's geopolitical, trade, and supply chain challenges.”

Situated in the management consulting business, KPMG’s technology practice helps organizations leverage the power of emerging enterprise technology, including cloud and SaaS platforms, internet of things, and automation. The practice’s offerings cover IT strategy, user experience, architecture and integration, enterprise and cloud applications, and workflow and automation, among other areas.

Pathak brings nearly 25 years of technology and management consulting experience to his new role. He joins KPMG from PwC Australia, where he spent the last two-and-a-half years as a partner and leader of financial services technology consulting. Before that, he spent 21 years at Accenture, where he was latterly a managing director and leader of technology strategy in Canada. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and management from McMaster University.

"We're delighted to welcome Sanjay into the KPMG family and back to Canada from Australia,” Terrill said. “His global skills and experience in digital strategy, consulting, and implementation will be key in helping our clients deploy integrated digital solutions so they not only survive but thrive in the new reality."

Pathak noted that companies will be increasingly pressured to re-energize their front, middle, and back offices through connected digital business technology and architecture. “Technology that delivers tangible value to your customers that builds loyalty and brand reputation,” he elaborated. “Technology that engages colleagues and attracts talent to drive performance and growth.”
