About Carlos Keener
Carlos Keener is an M&A and integration specialist and Founding Partner of Beyond the Deal (BTD), a full life-cycle M&A, integration and separation consultancy with an enviable track record in helping clients deliver long term value ‘beyond the deal’ for more than 100 clients around the world. He brings twenty years of international M&A, organisational change and project management experience across a variety of sectors including pharmaceuticals, retail, FMCG, media, oil & gas and natural resources. Rather than coming into this field from a traditional finance or strategy background, Carlos graduated from Imperial College London with an MEng in Chemical Engineering and launched his career in technical and manufacturing roles within the pharmaceutical industry, but soon found he was drawn to the strategic and operational side of business. In his time at Logica, PwC and Accenture, Carlos built the base of his experience through a variety of industry consulting roles including the integration of Corus and Tata Steel.
Since establishing BTD in 2001, Carlos has advised dozens of organisations including Coca-Cola, E.On, Centrica, Unilever, Xstrata and dozens of other organisations around the world, including support for the merger of GlaxoWelcome and Smithkline Beecham in 2001.
