Bio

After completing his Bsc Hons in Economics at the University of York, Bingham went on to study for an Executive MBA from University of Edinburgh and ENPC Paris.

Bingham is a fellow of the ICAEW and has been a partner in Financial Services at KPMG for over 21 years.

His experience spans both the UK and international markets at KPMG, providing assurance and advisory services to a range of organisations, from smaller stockbrokers and payment institutions to large global banking groups.

Why did he make the power list?

Bingham is number 47 in the power list. Winner of the Judges’ Awards at the 2017 British Accountancy Awards, Jonathan Bingham was recognised for an outstanding contribution to the accounting and finance industry with his work in the audit sector.

As well as revolutionising the way in which data is shared between client and auditor with the introduction of a new audit software tool, Jon has co-created an IFRS 9 guidance paper for banking audit committees. This year, many auditors will adopt the advice, resulting in increased visibility of their financial statements, and a renewed focus on transparency and integrity in the audit sphere.

KPMG

KPMG is a Big Four accountancy firm, which ranked fourth in 2017’s Top 50 + 50 rankings.

It employs 189,000 people and has three lines of services; financial audit, tax, and advisory. The firm got its name when KMG merged with Peat Marwick in 1987, though its origins go as far back as 1818.

Among KPMG’s awards are its ranking as a top 10 company for working mothers and its number 12 position on Fortune Magazine’s 2017 list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, as voted by employees.
