The firm, which employs more than 1,200 people in Scotland, has promoted 14 assistant managers, 25 managers, 11 senior managers and three new directors.
Bosses at the Big Four accountancy practice said the promotions came at a “pivotal moment” as the firm reports a significant increase in activity across all areas of its business. Last month, KPMG predicted that Scotland’s wider economy could re-gain ground lost in the pandemic within two years, slightly outpacing the return to growth elsewhere in the UK.
Catherine Burnet, this firm’s regional chair in Scotland, 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.
“More than ever before, our clients rely on KPMG’s wealth of expertise and talent to support them through the challenge of Covid-19 and help them find a path out of the pandemic towards recovery and long-term growth.
“I’m incredibly proud of the talented individuals within the Scottish practice and I have no doubt we’re the best placed firm to support the country’s business community as it navigates through the challenges and opportunities that will arise as Scotland slowly emerges from lockdown.”
