KPMG Europe spreads wings to take in seven nations

KPMG's branches in Russia, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Georgia join European group

KPMG Europe’s headcount is about to swell after the firm announced it would
absorb seven new branches into its formal European grouping.

Partners from Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Armenia and
Georgia have `overwhelmingly’ voted to join KPMG Europe LLP.

There, they will join partners from the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Spain,
Belgium and the Netherlands, which brings the total number to 30,000 partners
and staff from more than 100 offices with net revenues of €4.6bn (£4bn) in 2008.

Andrew Cranston, senior partner for KPMG’s commonwealth of independent states
said the merger would increase the ability of the firm to retain and target
major audit clients.

`Especially those with international operations and ambitions,’ he said.
