KPMG has appointed Andy Bostock as its new office senior partner for the Birmingham office.
Andy will lead the business advisory firm’s remit in the Midlands and takes over from Karl Edge, who after six years in the role moves to lead KPMG’s Private Enterprise business in the UK, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMA).
A qualified accountant, Andy joined KPMG 26 years ago and has more than a decade of partner experience. With extensive knowledge in providing audit, governance, risk management and compliance services across the public sector, he is responsible for the firm’s consulting business across the public and private sectors for the Midlands region.
Previously, Andy was KPMG’s UK Head of Public Sector Audit, before moving to lead the Birmingham office consulting team in 2020. Andy has been a member of KPMG’s Birmingham office leadership team for the last seven years, and in his new role, he will lead KPMG’s office in Birmingham which employs more than 1,300 people.
A Midlander born and bred, Andy lives with his family in Lichfield.
Commenting on his appointment, Andy Bostock, Birmingham Office Senior Partner at KPMG UK, said: “I am thrilled to be taking over the helm of KPMG’s Birmingham office at such an important time in the continued recovery of the Midlands economy, alongside the all-important levelling up agenda.
“The Midlands has a great deal to be proud of just now. The Commonwealth Games is set to put us at the centre of the world stage, Birmingham is becoming an increasing desirable destination for blue-chip businesses, and HS2 will cement the region’s pivotal position in the UK economy. All this combined provides long-term momentum for growth in the region. We have a brilliant team here in the city and right across the Midlands that is full of talent, market-leading expertise and is growing. I look forward to leading our office in our work alongside businesses and public sector organisations throughout the region.”
Karl Edge, KPMG’s head of Private Enterprise business in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMA) added: “Leading KPMG’s Birmingham office has been an absolute privilege. It is fantastic to have supported the business community in the Midlands and played a part in the success of so much diverse ambition.
“I’m delighted to pass the KPMG Birmingham Office baton on to Andy, who recognises the huge potential in the full range of Midlands’ businesses, from family businesses to some of the UK’s largest privately owned companies; they are in capable hands.”
