KPMG is my perfect fit because of the many opportunities both personally and professionally it has offered me throughout my career as well as the work life balance that it offers.
Phil McFarland joined the KPMG Lethbridge office in September 2009 after graduating from the University of Lethbridge. His current role has allowed him to focus on assurance based services to a broad range of clients.

Over the past year Phil has been able to coach and mentor KPMG staff through the CA School of Business (CASB) program while utilizing the national KPMG mentorship and training tools.

After graduating from the University of Lethbridge in 2004, I articled at KPMG’s Lethbridge office, where I successfully passed the UFE in 2006. I became the UFE coordinator for the office for the next 2 years and assumed the role of Campus Recruiter in 2008.
I focus on non-audit files, such as business, agricultural, municipalities, and health service clients, where I concentrate my attention on building client relationships and creating consistency with the files. I have had the opportunity to work with other KPMG offices in Alberta.
I enjoy staying active with snow skiing in the winter months, and water skiing, swimming, running, and horseback riding in the warmer weather. I have continued to be involved in the 4-H community, where I represent KPMG as a sponsor ambassador at local events.
