KPMG lures forensic partner from Accenture

Stephen Gallagher is joining
forensic technology team from Accencture where he led the European business
intelligence practice.

Gallagher, who was at KPMG Consulting earlier in his career where he helped
build its business intelligence practice, has also led the UK business
intelligence practice at IBM Global Services.

Fraud continues to represent a major issue in both the private and public
sectors, driving the KPMG forensic practice to become one of its fastest growing
divisions with revenues expanding from £30m in 2005, to £53m in 2007.

Adam Bates, KPMG Forensic global chairman, said forensic technology was ‘one
of the key pillars in the fight against fraud’. Analytical technologies and
processes were integral to this.
