Mr Wingrove was recently announced as Chief Executive Officer of KPMG Australia, succeeding Geoff Wilson who is taking up a new role as the firm’s Asia Pacific Regional Chief Operating Officer on 1 October 2013.
Both Mr Wingrove’s and Mr Somerville’s appointments are effective from 1 July 2013.
KPMG’s Advisory business is the largest of its kind in Australia and has been the fastest growing part of the firm over the last four years.
"John has been the Head of our Management Consulting division within KPMG Australia and Asia Pacific for the past four years, in addition to sitting on our Global Management Consulting Steering Committee," said Mr Wingrove.
"He has also previously headed the Financial Risk Management group and I believe this expertise, coupled with the strength of his relationships makes John exceptionally well placed to lead KPMG Australia’s growing Advisory practice."
"I look forward to working closely with John to deliver the next phase of growth for the practice and KPMG Australia," said Mr Wingrove.
