KPMG has appointed Aaron Froud as a partner in tax and accounting services to its Canberra Office.

Mr Froud has 16 years’ professional accounting experience, with previous stints in PwC as a director and as a senior accountant with EY, according to his LinkedIn profile. He was most recently a chief financial officer for the Master Builders Association of the ACT.

The chartered accountant had previously worked with KPMG as a senior manager, and is currently chair of the YMCA Canberra board, director of the Harman Australian Football Club, and a member of the Finance and Risk committee for OzHelp.

KPMG Enterprise Canberra partner Phillip Sands said Mr Froud’s focus on taxation and business advisory services in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors would be a welcome addition at the firm.

“The ACT is seeing strong growth in the private sector and Aaron’s appointment reflects the need to further service our diverse and expanding client base,” said Mr Sands.

“Aaron has extensive experience in both the big four and the Canberra private sectors in relation to the provision of tax and accounting services.

“We are looking forward to him bringing his skills, experience and networks and helping our Canberra Enterprise business continue to thrive.”
