KPMG Australia has announced the appointment of 94 partners for the 2023 financial year with additions made across almost every state and territory. 

CEO of KPMG Australia, Andrew Yates said he is pleased to see 55 internal promotions along with the 39 external hires, demonstrating the strength of the firm’s ability to help develop careers. 

“I am delighted to welcome such a diverse and energised group of new partners to our firm. Their insights, commitment and depth of experience will support our clients’ needs, wherever they are across the country,” said Mr Yates. 

“We’ve had a focus on building our regional footprint, and this year opened two new offices – in Townsville and Geelong – and moved into larger premises in Parramatta.”

“Pleasingly, we have another strong line-up of internal promotions this year, demonstrating attractive career pathways within our firm. And the calibre of our external hires is also outstanding, bringing new backgrounds and experiences to the firm.” 

The firm revealed 43 per cent of the appointed partners are women and 18 per cent are culturally diverse, supporting its target of 40 per cent women in partnership by 2025 and 20 per cent culturally diverse partners by 2025. 

KPMG said while a majority of the additional partners are going to the two major metropolitan cities – 34 in Melbourne and 30 in Sydney – the appointments also represent an investment into its mid-market and regional businesses, with four partners to be added in Darwin, Newcastle, Townsville and Wollongong; six in Canberra and Perth; two in Adelaide; and seven in Brisbane. 

The partners were appointed throughout the firm’s practices with 39 joining consulting, 18 to KPMG Enterprise – the firm’s mid-market business, 14 for deal advisory and infrastructure, 10 to audit and assurance, 9 to tax and legal and four in the business services division.
