Big Four firm promotes 53 as it seeks to support post-lockdown growth



Big Four accountant KPMG has promoted 53 people across its offices in Scotland as it plans for post-lockdown growth.

The firm has promoted three new directors, 25 managers and 14 assistant managers.

The new directors are audit director Madeline Grant, financial services consulting director Martin Douglas and deal advisory director Colin Boyd.

Martin Douglas, who will be based in the firm’s Edinburgh office said the last year “has been incredibly challenging for businesses in Scotland” and he said that KPMG had supported them throughout that period.

He said: “The firm has been at the forefront of supporting the economy and delivering innovative new ways of working, with teams collaborating remotely and overcoming huge challenges to deliver best-practice within the sector.

“I’m thrilled that I, and a number of my colleagues, have been recognised this year.”

The promotions come at a pivotal moment for KPMG as the firm reports a significant increase in activity across all areas of its business.

Last month, KPMG forecast Scotland’s wider economy could completely regain ground lost in the pandemic, within two years, slightly outpacing the return to growth elsewhere in the UK.

KPMG regional chair in Scotland Catherine Burnet said: “There’s a growing sense that Scotland’s economy is beginning to move again.

“As restrictions continue to ease and businesses open back up, we should start to see a significant uptick in wider business activity.

“The recent return to growth is reflected in our promotions, with a total of 53 colleagues recognised this month across our three offices and across all areas of the firm, including Audit, Deal Advisory, Tax and Legal, and Consulting.”
