Chris Foster

Partner, Financial Services | Management Consulting Lead

KPMG Australia

With his focus squarely on delivering results, Chris helps financial services clients to transform their businesses. He works to build capabilities across the financial services sectors, and helps organisations ensure they get the best use of new technologies to improve and automate their end-to-end business.

Chris has considerable experience in implementing business transformation and operational excellence within various organisations throughout Australia, UK and Europe.

A big fan (and player) of team sports – whether ice hockey in Canada or rugby union in Scotland, Chris believes that “working with a group of individuals to achieve a team outcome is really what inspires me. It’s a matter of ensuring everyone can utilise their individual skills to achieve team success as much as possible.” Chris applies the same ethos to his work. Although he no longer plays rugby or ice hockey, he is far from idle thanks to his two young daughters. “They’re a whole lot of energy and a whole lot of fun.”

In 2006, Chris worked with KPMG in the UK, and moved to Australia in 2008.
