KPMG in the Crown Dependencies is delighted to announce Leonard Gerber has been promoted to Advisory Director focusing on insolvency and restructuring, based in their Isle of Man office. This promotion recognises the continuing development and growth of the firm within the Crown Dependencies, following a number of recent promotions in the firm’s Advisory department.
