Mr Bazzani, who was Victorian chair for seven of the 16 years he’s been with KPMG, handed over the reins to Ms Mortell on 1 September. He will continue his work with KPMG’s national enterprise practice and as a member of the firm’s national executive committee.


New chair Ms Mortell has spent her 28 years at KPMG in a mix of audit, risk and CFO advisory roles.

For KPMG chief executive Gary Wingrove, Ms Mortell’s appointment marks a “fresh approach” for the Victorian office.

Ms Mortell is a “vocal advocate” for diversity and flexible working, according to a statement from KPMG.

“Since starting her family more than 10 years ago, she has worked successfully on a flexible workplace arrangement. Carmel is also passionate about enhancing the experience of all partners and staff,” KPMG said.
