Mathias Oberndörfer

Member of the Managing Board, Divisional Director Tax

KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft

As a member of the Managing Board at KPMG in Germany, I assumed responsibility for the Tax service line in October 2021. Furthermore, I am a Managing Director at KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH. In both service lines we are driving especially sustainable and profitable growth as well as digitalisation..

I support a number of companies in various industries, in Germany as well as internationally. In addition, I focus on the public sector and advise federal ministries, states and larger municipalities as well as non-profit organisations and foundations.

I have been admitted to the German bar since 2001 and have been working for KPMG in Germany since 2005. After starting in the Tax Public Sector service line, I switched to KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH, where I was promoted to Partner in 2009. I was a Managing Partner in charge of KPMG’s Public Sector  from 2014 to 2021. I was appointed Managing Director at KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft in 2016.
