Hi. I’m Roy, an Audit partner at KPMG in the Almaty office. I started life with KPMG as a trainee accountant in the South African firm. I then moved to KPMG in London for eight years and joined the banking group through the global mobility secondment program because I wanted to work in a large specialist office. An opportunity to move to Dubai as a partner then followed and I spent four years there honing my skills as a partner and running the Financial Services practice. After that I was approached to join the Russian firm as there was a need for banking specialists. Recently an opportunity in Almaty, Kazakhstan arose to take on the role of Risk Management partner as well as to continue servicing Financial Sector clients in Kazakhstan, which I accepted.
