Jacinta leads KPMG Australia's Future Transport work in NSW, connecting with our local and global network of Future Mobility and Smart Infrastructure teams.

She has more than 20 years’ experience in delivering business and customer led transformations in the UK and Australia through the implementation of technology across multiple sectors. These include:
