Over fifty KPMG employees have been elevated to the firm’s partnership ranks at its mid-year intake, the majority of those in its consulting division. KPMG has also grown its ratio of female partners.

The Australian branch of KPMG has added 94 new partners for its 2023 financial year, more than a third of those (39) in its newly reorganised consulting division.

While the majority of new partners are based in Melbourne and Sydney, the firm has also recently been focused on expanding its regional footprint, reflected in its partnership additions in Newcastle, Wollongong, Darwin and Townsville.

Other focal points – the growth of the firm’s mid-market business and efforts toward greater diversity – are also bearing fruit. Over 40 percent of the new partners are female, in line with the firm’s targeted 40 percent ratio of female partners by 2025, while around one fifth identify as culturally diverse. A similar number has been added to mid-market practice KPMG Enterprise, among altogether 55 internal promotions.

“I am delighted to welcome such a diverse and energised group of new partners to our firm,” commented KPMG chief executive Andrew Yates. “Pleasingly, we have another strong line-up of internal promotions this year, demonstrating attractive career pathways within our firm. And the calibre of our external hires is also outstanding, bringing new backgrounds and experiences to the firm.”
