Today, KPMG International announced the appointment of four new members to its GMT

The updated GMT, effective from 1 October, draws on the strength and breadth of the organization’s global reach with the new leaders joining from across the member firm network. The appointments reinforce KPMG’s commitment to develop and promote its own talent and further demonstrate its commitment to gender diversity and female representation in leadership positions as articulated in the recent KPMG: Our Impact Plan - KPMG Global (

The new team will continue to be led by Global Chairman and CEO, Bill Thomas. Together they will play a critical role in delivering on the organizations’ collective strategy and to ensure that KPMG remains sustainable, integrated and ready to meet the challenges of today as well as the emerging issues of tomorrow.

They remain collectively committed to KPMG’s:

  • people – enabling them to grow, develop and prosper across disciplines, providing new and diverse opportunities, while also ensuring it can attract the best talent in the market.
  • clients – giving them access to a broad range of services, expertise and ideas when they need them most as part of a single, fully integrated model.
  • wider economy and society – giving organizations around the world access to a broad range of skills and expertise, combined with KPMG’s strong sector knowledge, helping them to prosper, while also protecting the integrity of the world’s capital markets.

Joining the GMT are:

  • Global Chief Digital Officer, Lisa Heneghan. Lisa joins the GMT from KPMG in the UK where she successfully drove organization-level transformation. As Global Chief Digital Officer, she will oversee the continued execution of KPMG’s US $5 billion investment in technology, people and innovation, accelerating KPMG’s own digital transformation and transforming across the value chain to enhance the experience for both our clients and people.
  • Global Head of Quality, Risk and Regulatory, Paul Korolkiewicz. Paul has three decades of experience within KPMG including many years as Global Lead Engagement Partner for some of KPMG’ largest international clients and most recently as the Global Head of Risk Management for Audit.
  • Global Head of Clients & Markets, Regina Mayor. With more than 30 years’ of experience with KPMG, most recently as Global Head of Energy & Natural Resources, Regina is one of the world’s most recognized industry thought leaders and a strong voice for women and inclusion.
  • Global Chief Operating Officer, Gary Wingrove. Gary has been with KPMG for nearly 25 years, most recently as CEO of KPMG Australia where he led the firm to record growth.

Following the new appointments, four GMT members will retire from the global organization’s leadership team. They include Ed Cannizzaro, Philip Davidson, Christian Rast and Gary Reader.

I would like to offer my deepest thanks to Christian, Ed, Gary and Philip whose stewardship and commitment has helped to further build the foundations for our continued success. I know that many of our next generation of leaders will thank them for their mentorship, guidance and support over the years to come.
