KPMG has boosted its ranks with a partner from rival ‘big four’ PwC to run its Scottish pension business

KPMG has poached a new partner
from rival firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to operate its pensions business in
Scotland and is at the same time promoting two KPMG accountants to partner
level.

Donald Fleming has been appointed head of pensions and will be responsible
for spearheading the firm’s expansion in this area, The Herald in
Glasgow reports.

‘Donald’s decision to join the firm from PricewaterhouseCoopers represents a
real coup,’ Craig Anderson, head of KPMG in Scotland, said. ‘He brings with him
significant experience and an enviable track record of helping Scottish
businesses address pension-related issues. Donald has a remit to significantly
grow the pensions team in Scotland and is already actively recruiting.’

The two new partners are Kevin Smith, a KPMG director of indirect tax, and
Jenny Stewart, a former senior civil servant who joined the firm late last year
after five years as Ernst & Young head of government services, who has been
appointed to lead KPMG’s public sector practice.
