KPMG promotes 84 employees in Scotland
KPMG UK has promoted 84 people across its five Scottish offices as it prepares for further growth.
After announcing its Aberdeen promotions last week, the firm, which employs more than 1,200 people in Scotland, has promoted 51 employees to assistant manager grade, 17 to manager level, while 14 have been promoted to senior managers.
There are also two new directors, director of indirect tax, Katie Aghabala, based in Edinburgh and Glasgow-based deal advisory director Chris Malloch.
Newly promoted manager, Fahd Bari, is part of the firm’s Enterprise team, working in pioneering new co-working space The Clockwise Building.
The team assists disruptive new companies, providing them with access to senior-level corporate advice and funding support.
Mr Bari said: “I’m delighted to have been promoted to Manager grade. It’s a team effort, especially when you’re working in small hubs, like the Enterprise team in Glasgow. We’re working hard every day, but we’re passionate about what we do, and every one of us enjoys helping our clients –whether they’re early-stage start-ups, or successful global multinationals – to make a positive difference and achieve long-term sustainable growth.”
The promotions are a key part of KPMG’s growth strategy in Scotland, aimed at providing clients with a future-focused range of services and collaborative support and advice.
Catherine Burnet, senior partner in Scotland, added: “Every one of the 1,200-plus team members at KPMG in Scotland has worked tirelessly over the last year, helping our clients to grow in particularly challenging conditions. Our passion for growth and building trust shines through the work each individual carries out on a daily basis.
“On headcount, we are the largest professional services firm in Scotland, and with that achievement comes responsibility. We’re priding ourselves on creating a robust, healthy environment to assist our clients as they look to achieve their ambitions – regardless of market conditions – and I’m delighted to recognise the hard work of so many of our Scottish employees this year.”
