South Region chair Andrew Morgan commented: “We really do have a lot of exceptional talent in our region, and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to recognise this with a significant number of promotions across KPMG’s five South region offices.

“The teamwork in the South has been phenomenal in a year that none of us will forget anytime soon. I’ve been really impressed with how quickly our people have adapted to remote working. It’s testament to the strength of our people, coupled with our investment in technology, that we’ve been able to continue supporting our clients over the past six months through some of the most difficult challenges they’ve faced.”
