New FD for KPMG Europe

Bernd Erle has been named as the finance director of KPMG Europe, erasing fears that the recently-formed European firm would find itself without an FD

The CFO of KPMG in Holland, Jaap van Everdingen, was originally earmarked for
the role, but when the Dutch firm voted narrowly against joining the UK, German
and Swiss firms in the European merger, Everdingen was no longer eligible for
the post.

Erle moves into the finance director role having served as head of risk
management. He is a tax expert who was admitted to the Frankfurt bar in 1987 and
received his certification as a tax specialist in 1991.

Erle has been a member of the KPMG board since 1998 and has authored numerous
essays and books on tax, accounting and company law.

The length of time Erle will stay in the role could depend on whether KPMG
Holland decides to make a second attempt at joining KPMG Europe.

Van Everdingen was initially lined-up for the FD role to give the Dutch firm
a seat on the KPMG Europe board, which is dominated by partners from the UK and
Germany.
