The organisation’s involvement in East Africa goes back to 1949, when an office was opened in Kenya and operated as Angus, Lawrie and Jeremy. A few years later, the name of the firm changed to Peat Marwick, Mitchell and Co. and the firm operated as such until the late 80s, 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.
