KordaMentha has installed a new leadership team for its Forensics practice, appointing Matthew Fleming as practice leader and Sally Davitt as deputy chief.

A former leader of the firm’s Singapore and Jakarta operations, Matthew Fleming has been with KordaMentha for the past twelve years, joining after a decade as a director of investigations with PwC in Sydney, Indonesia and Hong Kong.

Earlier, he spent over a decade with the NSW police, including as a senior prosecutor. A partner at KordaMentha since 2011, Fleming returned to Australia two years ago, and will now lead the firm’s forensics business.

Joining Fleming as deputy forensics leader is fellow Sydney-based partner and office leader Sally Davitt, who crossed to the firm from future KPMG pick-up Ferrier Hodgson in 2010 and was elevated to the partnership in 2020.

Altogether, Davitt brings two decades of forensic accounting and expert witness experience to her new role, having first kicked off her career in the UK. She has also spent time on secondment with ASIC.

The pair take over from former Brisbane managing partner Brian Wood, who has headed KordaMentha’s forensics practice for the past six years after earlier joining from KPMG, and will continue as a senior partner to support the transition. The consultancy noted Fleming and Davitt’s “complementary skills and styles”, while crediting Wood with building up the business as a market leader, including through several recent recruits.
