Meet the Team
Peter Keogh FCA
After a career that took him from KPMG in Dublin to British Vita PLC in Paris and back to BDO Simpson Xavier and Deloitte in Limerick, Peter founded the firm – knowing that he wanted to build something with a difference. Peter is Keogh Ryan Tierney’s managing partner – and with 20 years’ experience in corporate finance transactions, he heads up the Advisory division of the company. Peter has a real interest in helping clients make their businesses work for them, so that – on every front – they get what they want from the effort they put in. The firm’s commitment to recruiting people with a difference is close to Peter’s heart and he enjoys seeing trainees using their time at the company to develop in different aspects of their life. Peter is also currently successfully leading a number of business sale and fundraising transactions.
