KPMG has appointed Oliver Tant as its UK head of audit. He takes over from
Richard Bennison, who recently became chief operating officer of KPMG Europe.

‘I’m proud to be leading a team of such talented and high-quality people,’
said Tant.

‘Auditors have always played a vital role in the effective functioning of
capital markets ­ perhaps now more than ever. I am sure our people will have a
very important part to play in restoring confidence in the capital markets
during these unprecedented times.’

Tant also joins KPMG’s European audit leadership team, the global audit
steering group and the UK operating team as part of his new role, the firm
added.

Tant joined the audit practice of Thomson McLintock in 1982. For the past
three years, he has been global head of private equity, as well as being a lead
partner for the sector within the UK practice.
