10 July 2012 - KPMG has announced the appointment of 30 new partners and executive directors to its Australian firm. They will be working with clients on a wide range of engagements across a number of industry sectors including Energy & Natural Resources (ENR), Financial Services, Government & Infrastructure, Healthcare, and Technology, Media & Telecommunications.

Many of the partners who joined from industry are positioned in KPMG's fast-growing Advisory division, reflecting the increasing need from private and public sector clients for capability to drive increased productivity and overall business performance.


New partners were also promoted to the firm’s Audit, Tax and Private Enterprise divisions, generating a strong pipeline of senior advisors providing assurance and advice to clients.


"To fulfil our ambition to be the best firm to work with, we continue to employ and develop exceptional people with deep industry knowledge and specialist expertise. I am proud to introduce KPMG’s next generation of leaders - 30 new partners and executive directors, who this year came from a more diverse range of industry backgrounds than ever before," said Geoff Wilson, CEO of KPMG Australia.
