KPMG - Global Structure

Global Structure

Each national KPMG firm is an independent legal entity and is a member of KPMG International Cooperative, a Swiss entity registered in the Swiss Canton of Zug. KPMG International changed its legal structure from a Swiss Verein to a co-operative under Swiss law in 2003.

This structure in which the Cooperative provides support services only to the member firms is similar to other professional services networks. The member firms provide the services to client. The purpose is to limit the liability of each independent member.

KPMG International is led by:

  • Michael Andrew, Chairman, KPMG International
  • Alan Buckle, Deputy Chairman, KPMG International
  • Rolf Nonnenmacher, Chairman, Europe, Middle East, Africa and India Region
  • John Veihmeyer, Chairman, Americas Region
  • Hideyo Uchiyama, Chairman, Asia Pacific Region

Michael Andrew, previously Chairman of KPMG in Australia, assumed the Global Chairmanship in September 2011 and is based in Hong Kong. This is the first time a Big Four accounting organisation has had its global leader based in Asia Pacific.

Famous quotes containing the words global and/or structure:

    Much of what Mr. Wallace calls his global thinking is, no matter how you slice it, still “globaloney.” Mr. Wallace’s warp of sense and his woof of nonsense is very tricky cloth out of which to cut the pattern of a post-war world.
    Clare Boothe Luce (1903–1987)

    I really do inhabit a system in which words are capable of shaking the entire structure of government, where words can prove mightier than ten military divisions.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)
