KPMG Australia announces 94i new partners for the 2023 financial year.

The appointments were made across the country with new partners joining in nearly every state and territory for FY23. 55 are internal promotions, with a further 39 external hires.

KPMG Australia CEO, Andrew Yates commented: “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. 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.”

  • 43 percent of new partners are female; and 18 percent identified as culturally diverse. These appointments support KPMG Australia’s target of 40 per cent women in partnership by 2025; and 20 per cent culturally diverse partners by 2025. 
  • Nationwide, there has been significant investment in our mid-market and regional businesses this year, with the addition of new partners in each of Darwin, Newcastle, Townsville and Wollongong (4). In Parramatta, 5 new partners joined the firm’s Greater Western Sydney office, while Brisbane has taken on 7 new partners and 6 new partners have joined in Perth. There are 6 new partners in Canberra, 2 in Adelaide, 34 in Melbourne and 30 in Sydney.
  • In line with the firm’s new operating model, the Audit & Assurance division added 10 new partners, while 39 new partners joined Consulting. KPMG Enterprise, the firm’s mid-market business, added 18 new partners; Deal Advisory & Infrastructure gained 14 new partners; and Tax & Legal appointed 9 new partners. KPMG continued to build leadership capacity for its internal capabilities with 4 appointments in the Business Services division, supporting the Client Growth & Markets team.
