The firm’s involvement in Kenya goes back to 1949 when it operated as Angus, Lawrie and Jeremy. In 1965, the name of the firm changed to Peat Marwick, Mitchell and Co. The firm operated as such until 1989, when, as a result of the international merger between Peat Marwick International and Klynveld Main Goerdeler, KPMG was created.
Regional expansion came in 1995 with the setting up of offices in Dar-es-Salaam and Kampala. In August 2010, KPMG made its re-entry into Rwanda setting up a fully fledged office. KPMG has gained recognition as a leading provider of audit, tax and advisory services throughout the East Africa region.6
