Commenting on the appointments Director of Audit, Russell Kelly, stated: “We are very pleased to be making these appointments and to continue to offer our people opportunities to build upon their collective expertise and reward them for their hard work and dedication over the years. As was evidenced by our being awarded the number two spot in the ‘World’s Most Attractive Employer’ Universum awards, KPMG places a great emphasis on the development and fulfillment of our employees and in building the right type of organisation for our clients. The promotions come as part of this commitment and as a result of our responsibility to provide high levels of assurance and a robust and independent opinion to businesses, shareholders and stakeholders in challenging economic times. I would like to congratulate Kerry, David, Sachet, Steven and Jenny for this remarkable achievement and wish them every success.”
