Big Six - KPMG names new UK executives

KPMG announced a new seven-strong UK management team this week, as the firm started to roll out international chairman Colin Sharman’s global management reforms.

KPMG’s new management pyramid is based on small executive teams. Sharman will be assisted by a handful of international vice-chairmen tasked with liaising between the international accountancy, consulting, tax and audit operations.

Similar teams will lead the national partnerships. The UK executive team will be led by senior partner-elect Mike Rake, with Gary Williams as UK chief operating officer.

The team includes Alan Buckle, chief operating officer of KPMG Management Consulting in the UK, and former international head of consulting Alan Reid, who moves back to join Rake’s UK executive as head of finance and infrastructure. Peter Doyle becomes head of London and Terry Gateley head of regions. Mike Wareing is head of sales. Head of audit Gerry Acher will chair a new client service board.

The chain of executive announcements was set off last Friday, when KPMG MC released the names of its new UK executive. The team is chaired by Eddie Oliver, who will focus on strategic issues, while Buckle will run the business.

Louise Fletcher, based in the firm’s Manchester office, will be responsible for innovation, Graham Oates for solutions and Steve Sherman for sales.
