Legerity is pleased to welcome Atanas Jelev back to the company from his recent role as a Senior Manager at KPMG.

In his new role as Client Services Director – Digital Transformation, Atanas will help lead the team to expand its market reach by developing and driving innovative, technology-enabled finance solutions. Further to this, he will also engage with third-party firms to form collaborative alliances, providing integrated digital solutions for our clients.

Atanas was previously at Legerity as part of the delivery team and worked on some of the company’s initial client implementations. He then went on to manage a number of our early IFRS17 PoCs.

Atanas adds: “Finance is entering an exciting stage of transformation with Cloud computing, SaaS and digital transformation playing a big part in simplifying finance system processes whilst building technology competence for the future-ready finance function.”

During his most recent role at KPMG, Atanas was tasked with leading delivery teams and assisting clients in the Financial Services sector through their finance transformation programs. This involved working with both Life Insurance and Global banks to deliver strategic regulatory solutions, optimising the month end close and reporting timelines with greater accuracy and control.

“We are delighted to welcome Atanas back to the Legerity team. Atanas was always a top-performing member of our team, and with his recent experience at KPMG rejoins Legerity at a very exciting time as we enter the next stage of growth.”

Atanas is also studying for his Executive MBA at Imperial College and will use the skills he has developed around leadership, strategy and finance to further support his new role.

Outside work Atanas has recently taken up golf and has used lockdown as an opportunity to develop his culinary skills.
