My new role: A privilege to be given the opportunity to lead
Having played an active role in the business community of this fantastic city region for many years, it is such a privilege to be now given the opportunity to lead one of KPMG’s largest regional offices in the UK.
We have a superb team of some 900 people here, who are all focussed on helping our clients, large and small, through their biggest challenges, during a time of unprecedented economic, geopolitical and technological change.
Manchester’s standing as a vibrant, dynamic and forward-thinking city on both the national and international stage is ever-growing, and I am excited by the opportunity to be able to play a part in its future development.
My priorities over the coming months will be to ensure that we continue to deliver best-in-class services to our clients across the region, while maintaining a keen focus on developing the skills of our people, ensuring we can recruit and retain the very best talent.
