KPMG strengthens its team with a newly-created deputy chairman position

KPMG
has strengthened its team by promomoting John Harrison, its Asia Pacific
chairman, to the newly-created position of deputy chairman, KPMG International,
effective immediately. Michael Wareing remains chief executive officer.

Timothy Flynn, chairman, KPMG International, said Harrison would work closely
with him in supporting the execution of global responsibilities, and ‘in helping
to drive the KPMG global agenda — including further integration of KPMG
globally’.

In addition to Harrison’s role as chairman of KPMG’s Asia Pacific region, he
also serves as co-chairman of the KPMG China and Hong Kong SAR firm with Carlson
Tong.

Harrison will continue to hold both positions through to March 2009, when his
terms expires and he will be succeeded by Tong, both as chairman of the Asia
Pacific region and as chairman of KPMG China and Hong Kong.
