KPMG in Kazakhstan and Central Asia is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Managing Partner.

Gregor Mowat replaced Alun Bowen as Managing Partner on 1 April 2013. Gregor has worked with KPMG in different countries over the last 14 years, including the last four and a half in the CIS. On joining KPMG in the CIS in 2008, he spent two years as a partner in Kazakhstan, providing audit and advisory services to banks during the early part of the global financial crisis.
